Delightfully Good Walnut Bars

Delightfully Good Walnut Bars

Isn’t it a comfort to know that walnuts are good for us, that they contain the kind of oil that helps the heart, not hurts it? Notice how I save some walnuts for the tip of these bars? That ‘s because we eat with  or eyes as well as our taste buds , and they just taste better wit a crunchy garnish.

Served 12( 2 each )

1/3 cup reduced – calorie margarine
1 cup SPLENDA Granular
2 eggs, or equivalent in egg substitute
¼ cup unsweetened applesauce
1 ½ teaspoons vanilla extract
¾ cup reduced – fat biscuit baking mix

½ cup chopped walnuts
