I then brought 1 cup of brown sugar, 1 cup of agave nectar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, a dash of salt and 2 tablespoons of Earth's Balance to a simmer and mixed it with my toasted goodies.
I lined a baking pan with wax paper and spread the mix and topped with Enjoy Life Chocolate Chips. I love how small (and dairy free) these chips are. I used a small piece of wax paper to pat it all down and spread it out. I baked in the oven for 20 minutes and peeked after 15.
I let them cool and cut them into bars and some small squares.... this is when I learned a new lesson. My bars had stuck to the wax paper! I was able to remove it by reheating slightly and peeling it off but should you make these either lightly grease your wax paper or don't let them cool too long! They taste pretty good but I think I needed to add more of the oats mix as when it baked, the liquid mix increased seeped to the bottoms and made the base really sticky. I've got them in the fridge now and will figure out a way to pack them up to be non sticky and last in my pocket all day to help me be strong during apres time.
