Healthy Nut bar... copycat
1. I have an 8X8 pan, but Ive also done these in a 9X13 pan. It changes the thickness, so just watch them as they are baking so they don't over crisp. You want to have them remain somewhat chewy!
2. I use Olive oil or coconut oil depending on what I have. Any cooking oil such as canola, vegetable or corn oil would work. Just make sure it's a mild tasting oil. I wouldn't sub sesame oil, or a kalimata olive oil for example because that would be adding a very strong taste to your bars.
3. I love a brightness to my bars, so I added a drop of orange oil. If you don't have it it is still just as yummy. You can also use those amazing orange flavored dried cranberries if you have a Trader Joe's nearby. They add the same brightness.
