Dried Apricots and Dates Oat Bars

Morning energy and flavor!

Preheat oven at 325 F.
In a large bowl, add together, mixing after each addition:
- 1/2 cup butter (melted)
- 1/2 cup agave syrup
- pure vanilla extract
- cinnamon
- 3 cups rolled oats (old fashion, not quick or instant)

When well combined, fold in:
- 1/3 cup dried apricots (~ 6 pieces) finely chopped
- 1/3 cup dates (~ 4 Medjool dates) finely chopped
Transfer the mixture in a 9 inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Press down firmly against the bottom of the pan (with your hand or using the side/bottom of a cup).
Bake for ~ 30 minute, until golden.
Cool completely in pan or on wire rack before cutting into bars.
