Healthy Apple-Walnut Bars

The squares are sweet, flavorful and loaded with chopped apple and nuts.


Yield :

  • Makes 15 Bars (1 Bar Per Serving).
  • 5 SmartPoints Per Serving.

Ingredients :

  • 32 graham cracker squares
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2/3 cup dried apples
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, chopped

Preparation :

  • Preheat oven to 300°F. Coat an 8-by-12-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  • Process graham crackers and cinnamon in a food processor until you have fine crumbs. Leaving about 1/2 cup in the workbowl, transfer the crumbs to another container. Add apples to the workbowl and process until coarsely chopped.
  • Combine sugar, egg whites, egg, vanilla and salt in a large bowl. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed until thick, about 3 minutes. Fold in the reserved crumbs, apples and the toasted walnuts just until combined. Transfer batter to the prepared baking dish; smooth the top with a wet rubber spatula. Bake until the top feels dry and a skewer inserted in the center comes out clean, 30 to 35 minutes.
  • Let cool completely on a wire rack. Cut into 15 bars.
