Preheat oven to 350 F. Line a 9x13-inch baking pan that has at least a 2-inch rim with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, combine rolled oats, spelt flour, wheat germ, cinnamon, baking soda, and salt. In a separate bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together orange juice and flax seeds, then mix in the vanilla, oil, brown rice syrup, and barley malt syrup until smooth.
Form a well in the center of the dry ingredients and pour in the orange juice mixture. Using a rubber spatula, stir to moisten the ingredients, then fold in sesame seeds, pepitas, cranberries, and dried fruit. The dough will be very sticky and thick;you may want to fold in these last ingredients using your hands.
Use lightly moistened hands to firmly and evenly press the dough into the prepared baking pan. Take care that the dough in the center of th epan is not too thick; press teh dough slightly toward the edges of the pan. Bake for 26 to 28 minutes until the top is golden brown and firm. Remove the pan from the oven and place it on a wire rack to cool. Let it cool for at least 45 minutes, then use a thin, very sharp serrated knife to carefully cut 16 bars. Store th ebars in a tightly covered container, or wrap them individually tightly in foil and freeze.
Fruity Oaty Coconut Bars: Add one cup unsweetened, grated coconut along with the oats.
