This is a delicious low-fat fruit and nut bar recipe. However, it is definitely not bland in taste! It does not contain any oil or butter, but tastes moist, rich, and has full bodied flavor. It is good iced or not. It is a versatile recipe where you can add other nuts and fruits and easily make it to suit your family's taste. This recipe makes a good gift. Cut it into bars and place on a Christmas plate, cover with saran wrap and tie with a bow. Enjoy!

The batter should look like this. It will be thick. Use a 9 X 12 X 2 inch pyrex baking dish. Spray it with butter flavored Pam kitchen spray. Pour the batter evenly in the baking dish.
