Fruit Phyto Bars
(NC)-Forget those tasteless, over-processed energy bars you buy at the store which have been sitting on the shelf for who knows how long! These delicious bars will not only tempt your taste buds but will deliver some important nutrition benefits as well. Made with antioxidant-rich California tree fruits (pick your favorite or use a combination of plums, peaches and nectarines) these bars will help you keep the sun's UV rays at bay with phytonutrients critical to maintaining healthy skin.
31/2 cups. Measure 1 cup into blender or food processor. Add oil and process until smooth. Reserve the remaining fruit.
With mixer, beat puréed mixture together with sugar, egg substitute, honey and vanilla until sugar is dissolved. Stir flours, dry milk powder, soda, ginger, salt, oats and sunflower kernels together in another large bowl. Add all at once to mixer bowl with remaining diced fruit; mix just to blend. Spread evenly in prepared pan and bake at 325º F for 30 to 35 minutes, or until pick inserted in center comes out clean.
Meanwhile, mix ingredients for glaze together until smooth. Drizzle or brush on bars while hot. Allow to cool in pan. Cut 5x6 to make 30 bars.
