Recipe by Geema

Except for special occasions I like to try to serve my family healthy food, including desserts. This one is delicious and actually has some very good nutritional value.

I found there was not enough prune mixture so I added more prunes. Maybe I didn't chop them small enough. I didn't have any lemons so I substituted some orange zest and mango juice for cooking the prunes. I had lemon zest but thought orange would go well. I didn't add any sugar to the prunes as I think they were sweet enough. I only used 1/2 cup butter in the crumble mixture. My husband and I both liked these squares.
