Grape nuts bars

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
3 cups Grape Nuts cereal (homemade recipe below, not from Pinckney)
1 cup Non-fat Soy Moo (or any low fat soy or rice milk)
1 cup Unsweetened applesauce
1 cup Raisins
2 teaspoons Vanilla extract

Source: "The Healthy Heart Handbook" by Neal Pinckney Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Mix all ingredients together.

Pour into a non-stick 9" square baking dish. Bake for 35 minutes or until firm. Cool and cut into squares. (best served cold, IMO .. see notes below) Serves: 12

You can add other extracts or spices such as: ½ - 1 tsp. or combination of: coconut, banana, almond extracts, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, clove, lemon and orange peel.

These freeze well and travel well! From: Natalie Frankel (Natalie.Frankel@...) my notes: I added almond and coconut extracts (1 t. each), lemon peel, juice of ½ lemon and 2 T. coconut (I know, I know .. I wanted the flavors of a *very* fattening cookie I love) .. still a little too soft in the center at 35" .. 5-10 more... now cooling .. we'll see ;) ... they're okay .. too mushy texture for me while warm (closer to grapenuts in milk, nuked for a minute) .. may need sweetening for me.

aHA!!! Next morning, cooled in fridge, they are wonderful - and sweet enough when cool..YAY! - for a cereal on the run type of thing or whenever one might eat a granola bar, for example. They are softer in texture but firm enough to remain in a compact bar you can hold. I cannot, however, taste the extracts or lemon. May try more next time ... these I will make again and again :). Thanks, Neal ....
