- If you don't have flaxseed meal, you can substitute with ground chia seeds or omit it altogether.
- Make sure to use unsweetened applesauce to keep the bars low in sugar.
- You can use any type of nuts or dried fruit in this recipe, based on your preference.
- If you don't have freshly squeezed orange juice, you can use store-bought orange juice, but make sure it's not sweetened.
- You can easily double the recipe to make more bars, just use a larger baking pan or make two separate batches.
