Friut and Nut Oatmeal Bars

Friut and Nut Oatmeal Bars

Introduction

I found this recipe in an old book, but substituted lighter ingredients to reduce the calories. Plus, I didn't have enough of the dried fruit and nuts, so if you want to just use the fruit and nuts you like, that would be just fine! (1 cup fruit, 1 cup nuts) I found this recipe in an old book, but substituted lighter ingredients to reduce the calories.
