Flax and Flex

Everyone is concerned about nutrition and health these days, right?  We all like to have something to pick up and snack on that tastes good but is also healthy.  I have just the answer. 

Flax seed and flax seed oil is a good source of omega 3 and omega 6 fatty acids and is great for helping to keep cholesterol in check.  Eating flax can also help flex those muscles as we exercise, too.  So flax and flex can work together very well.  Oats, almonds and blueberries also add some health benefits, too.

Instead of buying granola bars and power bars, why not try making some of your own.  It's easy and so chewy and yummy you'll be making them a regular snack and they also work well as a cereal! 


Bake in a smaller pan and cut into bars


Bake in a larger pan (as shown above) and break into pieces for snacking or cereal

I personally love the chewiness of the dried fruit.  I use unsweetened, unsulfured
cranberries, dark cherries and blueberries.  You can use whatever fruit you like best...
...remember that BLUEBERRIES are high in antioxidants!!!

Recipe upon request.
