Sunny Apple Bars

I get the Eat Better America newsletter and in it was this recipe. I was excited because I had the muffin mix in my pantry. It had been there for awhile, so I was more then happy to use it up. I thought these were good, but my 5 year old didn't. It might have been the raisins.

Sunny Apple Bars :
1box (15.3 oz) Fiber One™ apple cinnamon muffin mix
1/2cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix) or unsweetened applesauce
1/2cup water
1tablespoon canola or vegetable oil
1/4cup fat-free egg product or 1 egg
1/3cup raisins
1/3cup sunflower nuts
1/2cup powdered sugar
2to 3 teaspoons milk
1.Heat oven to 400°F. Spray bottom only of 13x9-inch pan with cooking spray. In medium bowl, stir muffin mix, pumpkin, water, oil and egg just until blended (batter may be lumpy). Stir in raisins; spread in pan. Sprinkle with sunflower nuts.
2.Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool completely, about 1 hour.
3.In small bowl, mix powdered sugar and enough milk for desired consistency until smooth. Drizzle over bars. Cut into bars."

* Makes 24 bars. I froze them in freezer bags then pulled them out and warm them up in the microwave. They still taste great!*
