Back in the day, I was OBSESSED with quinoa breakfast bars, I ate them almost every day and loved coming up with new flavors all the time.  (see Banana Walnut, Pumpkin Apple, Cinnamon Apple, and Carrot Cake Muffins varieties). If you are out of cranberries, I’d use the same process but substitute in frozen berries like blueberries or raspberries for the cranberries, that would be just as delicious.

I also upped the flaxseed in these and cut out the honey, I figured the dates would be sweet but I was a still a little nervous about the result.  Turns out I really loved how they came out. They aren’t sweet AT ALL, if anything they are a little tart.  I think this balances out nicely when I top them with peanut butter but you could always leave the honey in if you are concerned they will be too tart for you.
