    I made these delicious bars this morning! I used organic unsweetened Gravensteins applesauce as my ‘fruit purée’, arrowroot flour, and raisins as my choices for ingredients when given an option. They are substantial enough to be filling, and just sweet enough to satisfy. It took mine about 35″ in a glass baking dish and a convection oven to reach the desired brownness and texture. Thank you once again for showing me once again a creative, tasty and healthy recipe for those of us who weren’t sure there was life after Paleo!!! I am now embracing it!!

      Go Karen go!
      There is delicious life after leaving processed foods and sugars behind!
      Great idea to use the applesauce, yum.
      Keep up the good work, and I’ll be coming to cook with you soon. 😉
