Fruit and Nut Bar Recipe

I am always looking out for easy slices to make and a hostess at a clothing party I attended served these little bars up for afternoon tea. I thought they were quite tasty so I asked her for the recipe. They are super easy to make and I am sure you will enjoy them as much as I did.


1 cup pitted dates - chopped
1 cup mixed nuts - chopped ( I just used walnuts)
2 eggs
3/4 cup caster sugar
4 cups rice bubbles - lightly crushed
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/3 cup dried peaches - chopped


Preheat oven to 180C
Beat eggs till light and fluffy then add the sugar, beating through until mixture thickens.
Add the other ingredients and mix through.
Press into greased 23cm x 23cm tin and bake for 20 - 25 minutes.
Remove from oven and mark into bars with a knife before cooled down.
You could also use dried apple instead of peaches for a variation and if dieting you can substitute the sugar for artificial sweetener such as splenda.
