I made some unintentionally-vegan fruit bars tonight, using the Cinnamon Raisin Bars recipe on the Hillbilly Housewife website. The vegan part was because somebody had eaten the last egg; but as the recipe says, it works pretty well without. The fancy part? I got a bag of mixed dried cherries, blueberries, and cranberries as a Christmas gift, and I used those instead of raisins, along with a few chocolate chips. The dried berries work well in this recipe because you pour a cupful of boiling water over them (or the raisins) and let them sit a few minutes while you mix the other ingredients.
Cut in bars, eat for dessert, and send some back to university with returning offspring. And remember to buy eggs.
