Amish Recipe Bars

This recipe is reposted from the web site called  “Cooking with the Scarf Sisters”. They are not very sweet but the health benefits are worth less sugars and fats.

I’ve got two Amish and Mennonite cookbooks which I’ll have to check if there’s another version of this healthy breakfast bar.
Amish Recipe Bars

1 cup whole wheat flour
2 and 1/2 c. whole oats
3 Tbsp. raw sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
3 Tbsp. raw sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
3 banana’s mashed
1 egg
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1/4 cup milk
3 Tbsp. oil
4 cup raisins/walnuts…I used, 1 c. raisins, 1 cup dates and 2 cups walnuts.

Mix all ingredients (adjust to taste; you can add 1/2 tsp. salt if desired).
Drop approximately 1/4 cup full of mix per bar onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 25 to 30 minutes.

She was deciding to use craisins instead of dates and add a teaspoon of cinnamon, to the next batch.  You can  tweak recipes to suit  your taste!
Hmmm…maybe even pineapple. What do you think?

p.s.  used cinnamon and now add it to every batch.

Enjoy!
