Low-Sugar Cookie Bars

18 Oct

Ingredients: Butter, banana, raw cane sugar, eggs, vanilla, buttermilk, honey, crunchy unsweetened peanut butter, unsweetened applesauce, spelt flour, almond pulp, rolled oats, baking soda, baking powder, salt, and sugar-free chocolate melt away candies.

This recipe makes a big pan of moist, delicious bars! Love, love, love, them with a hot cup of coffee!

In one mixing bowl, stir together all of the following wet ingredients: One stick of semi-melted butter, two mashed ripe bananas, two eggs, one teaspoon of vanilla, ½ cup crunchy unsweetened peanut butter, ¼ cup organic no sugar added applesauce, ¼ cup buttermilk, and ¼ cup honey.

In a second mixing bowl, blend together two cups spelt flour, one cup almond pulp, ¼ cup old-fashioned rolled oats, one teaspoon of baking soda, ½ teaspoon salt, ¼ cup organic raw cane sugar, and ½ teaspoon of baking powder.

Now, combine the wet and dry ingredients into one bowl. The batter will be thick but don’t over mix it. At the very end of stirring, add in two cups of sugar-free chocolate melt away candies.

Use whatever you like to grease a nine by thirteen cake pan. Heat the oven to 350 degrees. Spread the batter into the pan. Sprinkle the top with a touch more organic raw cane sugar and then bake it for 30-35 minutes, until a toothpick comes out clean.

Experiment: Make oatmeal raisin bars instead by adding raisins instead of chocolate, taking out the almond pulp, and increasing the oats to 1¼ cups. Try adding nuts if you like. For a lower fat version, cut the butter in half and increase the applesauce by a ¼ cup.
