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 350Â° 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.
