Muesli Bars Unverified!

I'm 100% behind the Vegetarian cookbook authors when they say "make your own bars, brother". Their preparation lists a brief "oatmeal, barley and wheat flakes and nuts of your choice" as its primary guide to the complex world of muesli construction which is kind of weak sauce. I love this cookbook but detest some of the lazy steps that it takes which unecessarily cloud a kitchen under a bottle of, say "pumpkin pie spice" and not of its reagents which are probably also required to held in fresh quantities.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups museli
  • 5 Tbl sunflower oil or substitute
  • 5 Tbl honey
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 egg beaten
  • 3 Tbl dark brown sugar

Preparation

Combine all ingredients and mix in a 7"x11" pan. Level mixture and bake for 30-35 minutes or until light brown at 325F.

Allow bars to cool slightly and scribe 12-16 pieces. Allow to cool completely before breaking. Needs research: The source says to turn it out on a wire rack after it is totally cool, which doesn't make much sense except to be fussy. Maybe its not -quite- totally cool, so it'll come out easy. Just cool enough to be totally safe, allright?
