 Ingredients List

  • 2 c Dried prunes -- pitted
  • 2/3 c Orange juice
  • 1/2 c Chopped nuts
  • 3/4 c Margarine -- soft
  • 3/4 c Packed brown sugar
  • 1/4 c Honey
  • 1 Egg
  • 1 1/2 c All-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 c Rolled oats
  • 1/4 c Wheat germ
  • 1 ts Baking soda
  • 1/2 ts Salt


* Substitute 1/2 cup dried apricots for half of the prunes if desired.
Fiber content will remain about the same.

1. Combine prunes (and apricots if using) with the orange juice in a
blender. Blend until almost smooth, scrapping down the sides of the blender
a few times. Stir in the nuts; set mixture aside. 2. In a large bowl, cream
the margarine, sugar and honey. Beat in the egg. Mix in flour, oats, wheat
germ, baking soda and salt to blend thoroughly. 3. Grease a 9 x 13-inch
baking pan. Spread a little less than half of the flour mixture evenly in
the pan. Spread the prune mixture evenly over the mixture in pan, keeping
the prune mixture to within 1/2 inch of the edges. Crumble the remaining
flour mixture over the top to cover the prune mixture. Pat down gently. 4.
Bake in a preheated 350-degree oven 30-35 minutes or until browned and
springs back to the touch. 5. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars about 1 by 2
inches each.

Yield: 48 bars.
