Easier than Apple Pie

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
