Diabetic Grape Nuts Bars

Diabetic Grape Nuts Bars


3 cups Grape Nuts cereal
1 cup skim milk (or soy milk)
1 cup unsweetened applesauce
1 cup raisins
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Yield: 12 servings

Preheat oven to 350° F.

OPTIONAL: You don’t have to do this, but I boiled water and added the raisins in order to plump them and remove any surface sugars.

Mix all ingredients together.

Pour into a non-stick 9 inch square baking dish.

Bake for 35 minutes or until firm.

Cool and cut into 12 squares.

NOTE: To add some interesting or favorite taste variations, add one or more tsp of any flavor extract (or any combination): coconut, banana, almond, mint, or cocoa powder.

Various spices can also be added: nutmeg, allspice, cinnamon, ginger, clove, lemon and orange peel.

You can add other extracts or spices such as: 1/2- 1 tsp.
or combination of: coconut, banana, almond extracts, cocoa powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, ginger, clove, lemon and orange peel.

These bars keep well in the freezer and are excellent for traveling.
