Lemon - Apple Squares

It's been about a week since I last posted. And this time, words are quite necessary. I decided to try a NEW, yes a NEW, recipe from Kashi's website. You may be wondering why words are needed. Well let's just say I adapted this recipe to my own liking, higher protein, lower sugar, and lots of whole grain goodness. I have to also emphasize that this a new recipe attempt as my previous post about the Wholesome Sour Cream Apple Muffins has caused quite a stir in our house. My husband finally read the post, and let's just say he is now paying attention to ensure that his leg is not being pulled.

With this recipe, comes a warning, don't try it first thing out of the oven. You may wonder why the entire pan is empty in a few short minutes. It tastes like apple pie crossed with raisin bread. Yum.
