Fruit Bar Recipe
Dietary Candy Recipe
Pitted dates, raisins and orange juice make up the fruity flavors in a chewy fruit bar. Sunflower seeds and ground nuts add a nice crunch. If you prefer citrus flavored fruits, we've added a bonus recipe: Sunny Citrus Cubes! The tangy flavors of grapefruit and orange team up with walnuts to make a tasty treat.
1/2 cup raisins, chopped
1/2 cup dates, chopped
1/2 cup prunes, chopped
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
3/4 cup melted carob chocolate

Line a shallow pan with sunflower seed meal, finely chopped nuts, or coconut and spread candy in.
Dust top with more of the lining material. Chill.
When set, cut into bars and wrap in wax paper.
