Peanut Butter Power Bars

Trillian has been a little picky lately. I've been worried about her nutritional needs not getting met. Dahlia eats anything. Trillian on the other hand is on a chicken nuggets diet.
Yesterday I adapted some Peanut Butter Power Bars from one of my favorite cookbooks: Grazing: A Healthier Approach to Snacks and Finger Foods. I passed one to T asking if she wanted a piece of my giant cookie. She gobbled it up and asked for more. Since it was such a success, I wanted to share the recipe here.

Peanut Butter Power Bars - Trillian's Giant Cookie
1/3 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup peanut butter
1/4 cup whole milk
1/4 cup honey
1 t vanilla extract
2 T canola oil
3/4 c whole wheat flour
3/4 c old fashioned oats
1/2 t baking soda
pinch salt
1/2 c raisins
1/4 c slivered almonds
1/4 c hulled sunflower seeds
1/4 c shredded coconut
2 T ground flax seed

Preheat oven to 350F
In a large bowl mix wet ingredients (first 6). In a smaller bowl mix flour, oats, baking soda and salt. Add flour mix to wet ingredients, add remaining ingredients and stir until very well blended.
Pat into a greased 8 x 8 pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes until golden.
