    Applesauce takes the place of butter to make these very low-fat! --- feel free to add in some raisins.

      I love the fact that these YUM tasting brekky bars are almost FF and LC. I used 1/2 cup Splenda for the sweet part. I will make these again with the addition of raisins or blueberries as toni indicated. (didn't read that part until it was to late.) I also didn't have branbuds cereal and so just went with using another full cup of all-bran cereal to the mix. Still turned out very well. TY dear Kitzey.~ Made for 123HitWonders!

      These were delicious and a quicker variation on a bran muffin. The buttermilk and applesauce manage to keep this moist and tender without much added fat. My own squares were made with egg substitute and 1/2 white sugar and 1/2 baking Splenda. Also tossed in a cup of frozen blueberries which added a touch of sweetness and flavor. Next time, I want to do raisins and a teaspoon of cinnamon. Thanks!
