http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/apple_walnut_bars.html

For a good supply of lunchbox treats, make a double batch of these apple-walnut bars and freeze individual bars wrapped in foil.

15 bars | Active Time: 15 minutes | Total Time: 1 hour

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Coat an 8-by-12-inch baking dish with cooking spray.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. Let cool completely on a wire rack. Dust lightly with confectioners’ sugar and cut into 15 bars.
