Preheat oven to 350 F (170 C).
Wash potatoes, leaving their skins on. Cut potatoes into small even pieces and place into hot (not boiling) water. Bring to a boil and cook until tender. Once cooked, strain potatoes and place into a large bowl - mash and set aside to slightly cool.
Place slivered almonds in a pan and heat for 5-7 minutes over medium heat, slightly toasting them. Set aside to cool.
Add the rolled oats, brown sugar, unsweetened applesauce, toasted almonds, shredded coconut, dried cranberries, honey and flax seeds to the bowl of potatoes. Mix to incorporate all ingredients well.
Press the potato mixture into an 8x8 inch square pan lined with parchment paper. Bake for 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and cut the mixture into 12 even bars. Place the bars on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper. Bake for another 30 minutes - until the sides of the bars crisp up.
