    1. Preheat oven to 180 C / Gas 4. Line an 20cm square baking tin with baking paper.
    2. Mix oats, cranberries, pecans, milled flaxseed, chocolate chips and wheatgerm together in a bowl.
    3. Stir brown sugar, honey, vegetable oil and salt together in a large microwave-safe bowl; heat in microwave for 30 seconds. Stir mixture and heat in microwave again until smooth, about 30 seconds more. Stir vanilla extract and cinnamon into brown sugar mixture.
    4. Stir brown sugar mixture into oats mixture until evenly mixed and chocolate is melted; pour into the prepared baking tin.

    Cook's Notes:

    If the bars are too crumbly even though you mixed the dry and liquid ingredients well, add a little more honey to your liquid mixture.

    12.4.15 I liked the taste of these bars, but they are crumbly and falling apart. I read the Cook's Notes, but I don't think you can tell what the consistency is going to be until you bake them. I packed them firmly into the dish and actually baked them an additional 5 minutes. Followed the recipe except for using white chocolate chips (what I had on hand) and roughly chopping the pecans. Good, but the fact that I can't just pick one up and eat without crumbs all over the place is a disappointment.  -  04 Dec 2015  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    Very tasty! After reading previous comments on consistency, I added 1/4c more honey. I also made it without chocolate chips.  -  07 Aug 2016  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
