Mom’s applesauce and Raisin bars

Mom’s applesauce and Raisin bars

My friend Barbara’s mom always stirred applesauce and raisins into her oatmeal hen she was a little girl, and when Barbara tried these, she said that they reminded her of her mom’s sweet touch with cereal ! Check that your applesauce is  the natural, unsweetened kind.

Serves 8 (2 each)

¼ cup reduced – calorie margarine
¾ cup SPLENDA Granular
1 egg, or equivalent in egg substitute
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon apple pie spice
½ teaspoon table salt
½ cup seedless raisins
¼ cup chopped walnuts

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 7-by-11-inch biscuit pan with butter – flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, cream margarine, SPLENDA, and egg until mixture light and fluffy, using a sturdy spoon. Stir in applesauce. Add flour, baking soda , apple pie spice, and salt. Mix gently just to combine. Fold in raisins and walnuts. Spread batter evenly into prepared pan. Bake for 24 to 26 minutes. Place pan on a wire rack and allow to cool completely. Cut into 16 bars.
