A Very Seedy, Gooey, Sticky, Oat Bar

These bars are like a soft brittle (I know soft and brittle are just opposites), sticky, gooey and sweet. I certainly don't think they are very healthy but do satisfy any craving you might have for something sweet. Warning: They are addictive, but it would not be advisable to eat too many....hard as that may be!
6 tablespoons butter
6 tablespoons water
3/4 cup brown sugar (I told you it was sweet)
2 tablespoons molasses
1 cup oatmeal
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 cup flax meal
1/2 cup sesame seeds
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1. Measure all the dry ingredients (EXCEPT the sugar) in a bowl.
2. Bring to a slow boil, the butter, sugar, molasses, and water. Simmer for about 5 minutes
3. Add to the dry ingredients and mix well.
4. Pour into a 9X13 inch pan lined with parchment paper
5. Bake at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 20 minutes. Remove from oven, and score into squares the size of your choosing. Let sit for 15 minutes than return to over and bake for another 15-20 minutes. Remove from oven, and allow to cool. They will firm up a bit as they cool. Break into the pre-scored squares.  Store in an airtight container.
