Pecan & Flaxseed Cereal Bars



Take one of these satisfying and healthy snack bars to work, or on a day trip, to keep your energy levels high in between meals. Each bar is packed full of ingredients high in omega-3 oils, such as pecans, almonds and flaxseed (linseed), which are essential for good health. Because the bars freeze well, it is convenient to make a large batch, and place some in the freezer, allowing them to be taken out as you need them.
