I was inspired when I saw this lovely post over at the very well loved Tartlette. I like the idea of using lavender, which I have in my cupboard, but really don’t know where to use it. I followed her recipe, except leaving out the eggs and adding ground flax seeds instead.

  • 1/2 c whole wheat pastry flour
  • 3/4c rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom powder
  • 1/3c chopped almonds
  • 1/4c chopped dried apricots
  • 1 tsp dried lavender buds
  • 1 Tbs ground flax seeds
  • pinch of baking soda
  • 1/4c yogurt
  • 1tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4c honey (I think it could use a little more honey, so I would up this to maybe 1/3c)

Preheat oven to 350

Mix everything together into a dough. Press the dough on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper, into a rectangle or square shape. cut into bar shapes. Bake 10-12 minutes and cool on a wire rack.

I am sending this to Priya’s and Kiran’s Cooking with whole grains- Oats
