How to make it

  • Mix all dry ingredients together, set aside.
  • Mix all fruit/veggie ingredients together, set aside.
  • In a large bowl, cream together butter and sugar until light and fluffy, about
  • 5 minutes. Add eggs, scrape bowl well, and continue to beat until mixture
  • is thick, ribbony and very pale, another 3-4 minutes. Add vanilla and applesauce.
  • Turn mixer to low speed, and add Dry ingredients, mixing until just blended.
  • Remove mixer or beaters, and stir in fruit and oat mixture by hand until well-incorporated.
  • Chill one hour at least. Meanwhile, preheat oven to 350.
  • To form bars, lightly grease your hands with oil. (The kids can help out here! It's very sticky!)
  • Shape gently into three inch by one inch logs. You can also drop them by spoonfuls to make cookies, but they'll cook faster.
  • Bake 15-20 minutes, until just starting to brown. Remove to cool on rack, and store at room temperature. Makes about 16 bars.
