      These were lovely! I used fresh mandarins...I wasn't sure whether it would work but it came out well. It makes nice moist, fruity bars. Thanks!

      Very good! We aren't always fans of fruit in our sweets, but this is one of the better fruit desserts. Few changes I made: I didn't bake the base quite as long as called for- I didn't want it to be too hard at the end. I left out the banana and subbed craisins for raisins. I DICED the apples, then mixed the fruit mixture in my electric mixer so that everything would be sort of smashed up. That made a LOT of juice, so I decided to drain almost all the juice off before putting in pan. My bars were still quite moist, but I had no problem getting them out of the pan neatly. (I also sprayed the pan). Good recipe; I especially like the nutrition facts.
