Light Cranberry Bars

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by Brooke the Cook in

I created this light version to reduce the fat and sugar found in a recipe by Bonnie Young (Cranberry Bars). These taste wonderful and you would never know that they were light! These go together in a snap and are real crowd pleasers. I make them year-round using frozen cranberries. If you don't have frozen or fresh berries - I don't recommend using dried fruit. WW points = 2/serving

Fantastic, easy to put together and in no way taste "light." I'll share this one at my WW meeting for sure, but my non WW family loves them too.

  1. Preheat oven to 350 and grease and flour a 9x13 baking pan.

  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour and baking powder. Add to creamed mixture and mix well.
