High Protein Granola Bars

I love the convenience of granola bars, but am not a fan of the ingredients.  When sugar is listed multiple times in the ingredients (as sugar, glucose-fructose, and corn syrup), and any fibre comes from added inulin, I wonder if I am better off eating a Kit Kat.  The solution?  Homemade high protein granola bars.  You can be creative with this recipe.  Play around with it by adding your own combination of seeds, nuts and dried fruits.
2 1/2 cups whole rolled oats
3 scoops vanilla or plain protein powder 
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup ground flax
1/4 cup pumpkin seeds
1/4 cup pecans
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/3 cup dried dates, chopped
1/3 cup dried cranberries
1/3 cup raisins
3 tbsp honey
3 tbsp Agave nectar
1/4 cup olive oil
1-3 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
This one is easy!  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.  Press mixture onto a cookie sheet, greased or lined with parchment paper.  Bake at 325F for 18-25 minutes.  Cool, cut and enjoy!
Store bars in the freezer.
