Energy bars take 6 (production)

Take 5 worked quite well, but we both preferred the spicing from take 4. This is a "doubled" batch (so half the original recipe) that we took with us for a trip to Liguria. I made some changes based on ingredient availability:

200g soy flakes, ground to a coarse meal
50g flour
200g almond slivers
60g almonds, ground to coarse meal
100g each dried apricots and prunes, minced
30g each sesame and flax
200g sugar
110g honey
90g zuckerruben sirup
50g butter
4 tsp cocoa
3 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1/2 tsp nutmeg
black pepper

Update: 25 May 2009: These held up really well on the trip and were definitely a success. The one refinement would be to spice them a bit more heavily, otherwise this recipe is a keeper.
