Apple Pie Bars
2 large apples, cored, peeled and cut into medium sized chunks (~2-2.5 cups)
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/3 cup rolled oats (uncooked)
1/2 cup sugar of your choice (white, brown, turbinado)
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup raisins, cranberries or a combination of both
1/2 cup egg substitute (or 2 whole eggs)
2 tsp canola oil
1/2 tsp maple syrup
canola oil spray to grease the pan
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix dry ingredients together in a large bowl. Add chopped apples, raisins (and cranberries) and then combined wet ingredients. Mix to form a batter. Mixing in the fruit before the wet ingredients makes it easier to combine.
Spread the batter into an 8″ x 8″ baking pan that has been prepared with cooking spray.
Bake for 30 minutes.
Let cool and cut into ~ 18 bars
