DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.
  • Grease a 9 inch by 13 inch pan, or two 8 inch by 8 inch pans.
  • Combine all ingredients in bowl and mix well.
  • It should be moist enough to form a ball, without extra liquid.
  • Put mixture in prepared pans and spread evenly.
  • Bake for 30 minutes.
  • Remove from oven and cut into squares while still hot.
  • Wait until the bars cool before trying to remove them from the pan.
  • One tip: if the fruit is hard, soak it with a bit of water before starting to make this recipe because the fruit doesn't soften much in baking.
