A cross between a cookie and a cake these maple syrup infused bars go well with an nice cup of tea. It’s another Weight Watchers recipe. I’ve been using a lot of those lately. It must be January.

Sun Oven Maple-Glazed Bars


1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup whole-wheat flour

2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cups unsweetened applesauce

3/4 cups packed light brown sugar

2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 cup raisins

2 tablespoons confectioners’ sugar

2 tablespoons pure maple syrup


Set Global Sun Oven out to preheat. Line two 9 x 6-inch baking pans with parchment paper allowing it to extend over the rim of the pan by 2 inches.

In a medium bowl, whisk together the flours, pumpkin pie  spice, baking soda, and salt; set aside. Using a wooden spoon, combine the applesauce, brown sugar, and oil in a large bowl until well blended. Add the flour mixture to the applesauce mixture and stir just until blended. Stir in the raisins. Spread the batter evenly into the two pans. Cross stack the pans in the Sun Oven and bake until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, 40 to 50 minutes.

In a small bowl, stir together the confectioners’ sugar and the maple syrup until smooth. Using a pastry brush, brush syrup mixture over bars; let cool completely. Lift from pans using the parchment paper as handles. Cut into 24 bars.
