Breakfast Muesli Bars


¼ cup honey
3 Tablespoons orange juice concentrate
2 Tablespoons canola oil
½ tsp sea salt
½ tsp cinnamon
1 ½ cups old country style muesli
½ cup oat flour
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp baking soda
1/3 cup cranberries
3 Tablespoons brown flaxseed meal
2 tsp orange zest


Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 degrees F. Lightly grease an 8-inch square baking pan. In a 3-quart pot, bring 1 cup of water to a boil. Turn off the heat and blend in the honey, orange juice concentrate, oil, salt, and cinnamon. Stir in the muesli, oat flour, baking powder, baking soda, and dried cranberries. In a small bowl, mix the flaxseed meal and 1/4 cup water until the mixture becomes thick, gummy, and slightly frothy (use a fork to vigorously stir as if you were beating egg whites). Fold the flax-seed mixture and orange zest into the muesli until well blended. Pour the mixture into the prepared pan and even off the top. Bake uncovered until the sides and bottom are golden and a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 45 minutes. Set the pan on a rack. When cooled to room temperature, cut into bars.
