This healthy recipe is courtesy of http://happyhealthymama.com.
4 Medium Pears
1/2 cup Apple Sauce
1/2 cup Almond Butter/Cashew Butter/Peanut Butter (your choice)
2 tsp Vanilla Extract
2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
1 tsp Ground Ginger
1/2 tsp Ground Cloves
1/2 tsp Salt
3/4 cup Oat Flour (or Plain Flour)
1/2 cup Rolled Oats
3/4 tsp Baking Powder
Preheat the oven to 180 C.
Line an 8X8 inch pan with parchment paper with overhang or aluminum foil and lightly oil the foil.
Make a pear puree by blending 2 pears.
I did not peel the pears, but if your blender isn't powerful you may want to peel them first.
You should have 1 cup pear puree.
In a medium bowl, mix together 1 cup pear puree, the apple sauce, nut butter, and vanilla.
Stir in the cinnamon, ginger, cloves, salt, flour, oats, and baking powder.
Mix until combined.
Peel and dice the two remaining pears. Stir in the diced pears.
Pour the mixture into the prepared pan.
Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 25-30 minutes.
Allow to cool completely before cutting into bars.
