High Fiber Energy Bars

2 cups dried prunes, pitted
2/3 cup orange juice
1/2 cup chopped nuts
3/4 cup margarine, soft
3/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
1 egg
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1/4 cup wheat germ
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

Combine prunes (and apricots if using) with the orange juice in a
blender. Blend until almost smooth, scrapping down the sides of
the blender a few times. Stir in the nuts; set mixture aside.

In a large bowl, cream the margarine, sugar and honey. Beat in the
egg. Mix in flour, oats, wheat germ, baking soda and salt to blend

Grease a 9 W 13-inch baking pan. Spread a little less than half of
the flour mixture evenly in the pan. Spread the prune mixture evenly
over the mixture in pan, keeping the prune mixture to within 1/2
inch of the edges. Crumble the remaining flour mixture over the
top to cover the prune mixture. Pat down gently.

Bake in a preheated 350: oven 30-35 minutes or until browned and
springs back to the touch. Cool on wire rack. Cut into bars about
1 x 2-inches each.

NOTE: * Substitute 1/2 cup dried apricots for half of the prunes
if desired. Fiber content will remain about the same.

Yield: 48 bars
