Ease Factor 2 | Makes 10 bars

Ingredients

• 4 tablespoons golden flaxseeds
• 2 large ripe bananas
• 1/4 cup Sucanat, brown sugar, or your preferred dry sweetener
• 2 heaping tablespoons blueberry preserves
• 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
• 2 cups rolled oats
• 1/4 cup raw unsweetened shredded dried coconut

2. Put the flaxseeds in a high-performance blending appliance and process into very fine flour. Put the bananas, Sucanat (or brown sugar), blueberry preserves and vanilla in a medium-sized bowl and mash with a potato masher or large fork into a chunky purée. Add the ground flaxseeds, oats and coconut; stir to combine. Gently fold in the fresh blueberries.
