Yummy Apricot Breakfast Bars

Since I had success using whole wheat flour in the Whole Wheat Pumpkin Muffins and the Homemade Whole Wheat Sandwich Bread, I decided to try more recipes using whole wheat flour.  I’m not sure if I’ll cut out white flour completely, but I would like to use whole wheat flour more often.  I’ve had this recipe for Yummy Apricot Breakfast Bars from Heavenly Homemakers bookmarked for a while, but I usually don’t have dried apricots on hand.  These definitely aren’t as sweet as your usual breakfast cake, but I think that’s a good thing!  These taste hearty, and I love the crunch of the sesame seeds!  I do think these taste best the day they are baked.  I’m looking forward to playing around with various combinations of fruit, nuts, and seeds in the recipe.  There are so many possibilities!

  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3/4 cup honey
  • 1 t. baking soda
  • 1 t. sea salt
  • 1 t. vanilla
