Dark Chocolate and Cherry Granola Bars

5 tbsp vegan butter
3 tbsp peanut/almond butter
2 tbsp brown/organic sugar
2 tbsp flour
½ tsp baking powder
¼ cup honey 
3 cups dry oats (whole grain rolled oats, rolled spelt and/or wheat bran) 
1 tsp chia seeds
3 tsp sunflower seeds (or any nut)
½ cup dark chocolate chips
½ cup dried cherries without sulfur (or any dried fruit) 

Preheat oven to 325.  Melt together butter, nut butter, brown sugar, flour, baking powder and honey.  Stir in oats, chocolate, dried fruit, etc.  Pour into 9x9 pan prepared with parchment paper or vegan butter so that ingredients do not stick.  Bake for 25 minutes.  Let cool completely.  If you did not use parchment paper, use a round-edged dinner knife and cut around edges of pan.  Flip pan upside-down onto foil or cutting board.  Makes approximately 18 servings.
