    justcallmetoni's Note:

    The absence of white sugar in these bars appealed to me when I found the recipe. I played with it a bit to reduce the fat content and make them more healthful but just as tender and delicious as the original. The mix of dried fruits gives these a natural sweetness that is just wonderful. You can replace the cinnamon and nutmeg with an equivalent amount of Baking Spice Blend Mix. Noe that the preparation time includes time to cool the dried fruit mix after simmering, so it is not as labor intensive as the times imply.)

    1. 1
      Bring 1 cup water to boil in a medium suacepan along with the butter and dried fruit . Reduce to a simmer and cook for 5 minutes. Mix in the apple butter or apple sauce. Allow the fruit combination to cool 10-20 minutes. (Tip: Dried fruit can be quite sticky when chopping. Lightly spray your knife with cooking spray first and the task will go more quickly.).
    2. 2
      Mix together the flour, baking soda, spices and nuts in a bowl. Beat together the egg and egg whites. Add beaten eggs, vanilla, and fruit slurry to the bowl with the flour mix and stir until combined.
    3. 3
      Bake in 9 inch pan square pan at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.
    4. 4
      Allow to fully cool before trying to cut and serve.

      Lovely healthy start to my morning for both myself and my toddler. Great lunch box item for us both for a midmorning snack too. Much better than store bought, preservative filled, fruit bars with their imitation fruit flavours and food colourings.
