Low-Point Fruit Bars

Yum
The only problem with making a delicious low-point baked good, is that counting the points becomes "pointless" if you eat the entire pan. That's just how good these Low-Point Fruit Bars are! These are wonderful with a cup of coffee! They're also wonderful to share with family and friends... if you have any left to share, that is. Enjoy!


Low-Point Fruit Bars
Ingredients:
3/4 cup Quick Oats
1 cup Bisquick reduced fat baking mix
1/2 cup Splenda granulated sugar substitute
1/4 cup reduced calorie margarine
1/4 cup fat free milk
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (optional)
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
1/2 cup spreadable fruit spread
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray an 8x8 inch baking dish with butter-flavored cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine oats, baking mix, and Splenda. Add margarine. Mix with fork until mixture is crumbly. Reserve 1/2 cup crumb mixture. Stir milk into reserved mixture.
Fold in walnuts and chocolate chips to the large bowl of mixture. Pat mixture into prepared baking dish. Carefully spread fruit spread over crust. Evenly sprinkle reserved crumb mixture over fruit spread. Lightly spray top with butter-flavored cooking spray. Bake for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool and cut into bars.
