sunbutter and fruit super bars

this was adapted from a recipe i found from wildoats. i used sunbutter but can be substituted with any nut butter...we don't do peanut butter until the littlefoodie crazy booty is at least 3 to one up him on the allergy thang.

(pictures and review will come later! they are still a bit warm but so far so good!)

1/3 cup sunflower butter
1/3 cup organic maple syrup grade b
1/4 cup canola oil
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup plain (i used kefir)
1 banana, mashed
1 1/2 cup organic whole wheat flour
1/4 cup oat bran
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1 apple, grated
1/2 cup organic bluberries, not thawed and tossed with a little flour to coat
1/2 cup raw sunflower seeds

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the almond or peanut butter, syrup, oil, eggs, vanilla, yogurt and banana. In a separate bowl combine the flour, oat bran, salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Blend dry ingredients into the creamed mixture. Stir in apples, blueberries and sunflower seeds. Pour batter onto a greased 13x9x2 inch pan and spread evenly. Bake for about 35 minutes or until golden brown. Allow the bars to cool and cut into 1X4 inch bars.
