Anyone here whose New Year resolution was a low-fat and no-refined-sugar diet? Try these apple walnut squares. They are sweetened with dried dates and otherwise contain rolled oats, whole wheat flour and apple juice. Now that I look at the ingredients again, they are in fact vegan.
I love the smell of cooked apples with cinnamon. I think this is one of the main reasons, why these cookies appealed to me when I first found the recipe. Needless to say, I also love to eat cooked apple with cinnamon.
These squares are best eaten straight out of the oven. But you can also heat them up for breakfast, or, like I did yesterday, for a lovely afternoon snack in the car while driving.
