Introduction

I got this receipe from the Food Network - Ellie Krieger. I have made this receipe a couple times - the first time with dried cherries and walnuts, and again yesterday substituting with craisens and almonds. You really can substitute any dried fruit and nut as long as you keep the portions the same! I got this receipe from the Food Network - Ellie Krieger.

Ingredients

    1 cup quick-cooking oats
    3/4 cup whole wheat flour
    1/4 cup toasted wheat germ
    1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup honey
    1/3 cup unsweetened applesauce
    1/4 cup canola oil
    1 egg, beaten to mix
    1 egg white
    3/4 cup chopped dried cherries (or craisens, or apricots)
    1/2 cup chopped walnuts (or almonds or peacans)
    Cooking Spray
    1/4 cup (or 3 tbs) "fruit only" apricot preserves (or strawberry or... you get the point).

Directions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, wheat germ, cinnamon and salt.
In another bowl, whisk together the honey, applesauce, oil, egg and egg white until well combined. Stir in the oatmeal mixture until well combined. Add the dried fruit and nuts.
Coat an 8-inch square baking pan with cooking spray. Spread the mixture into the prepared pan and bak until a toothpick inserted in the center fomes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes. Put the preserves in a small saucepan and bring to a boil. As soon as the bars come out of the oven, brush with the preserves. Cool completely and cut into 12 bars, about 4 by 1 1/2 inches each.
GREAT snack or breakfast or anytime!!! Thank you Ellie Krieger!!!
