in these bars the tart red cherries are mixed with oatmeal and Brown sugar . As an added bonus, these bars are relatively healthy. Take them along on your next nature walk. You can substitute your favorite dried fruit for the cherries. Use apricots which work especially well if desired. For more crunch, toss in 1/3 cup chopped almonds or cashews. The Fat Witch Bakery
