¼ cup coarsely chopped Patriot Pantry dried blueberries
¼ cup coarsely chopped Patriot Pantry dried strawberries

Place dates in a small pan and cover with water; bring the water to a simmer. Remove from heat and drain all but 1/2 cup water. Put dates, reserved water, and honey in a food processor and puree until smooth. Set aside.
Spray an 8 x 8-inch pan with nonstick cooking spray. Combine oatmeal, pecans, peanuts, pineapple, banana chips, blueberries, strawberries, bran, flaxseed, wheat germ, cinnamon and salt in large bowl. Pour in the date puree and mix until well coated. Press the energy bar mixture into the prepared baking pan.
