Lactation Cookies/ Breakfast Bars V2

I have almost perfected last week's recipe. I'm trying to figure out a way to add more protein and fiber, but for now, this version is much tastier and the texture is much better than last weeks. Since I'm going back to work this week, these will become my breakfast and afternoon snack. (changed amounts are highlighted):

Preheat oven to 325

In a small cup, mix 2T flax meal and 4T water

Cream together:
3/4c Virgin coconut oil
3/4 c white sugar
1 c brown sugar
2T Stevia + 2T molasses (or another 1/4c brown sugar)
1/4c peanut butter (we use fresh, just crushed peanuts, no salt or sugar)

Add in :
2 large eggs
1 t vanilla extract
flax meal slurry

and cream until fluffy.

Mix in a separate bowl:
2t salt
1t baking soda
1.5 c unbleached all purpose flour
1/2 c brewers yeast or nutritional yeast flakes

Add wet ingredients to dry and mix well. Add in:
4c old fashioned oats
1c raisins
1/2 c sliced almonds

Spread mixture into a parchment lined sheet cake pan or cookie sheet and bake for 30-35 minutes, until browned. Cool completely and cut into 24 bars.
