These offer a great homemade alternative to store-bought cereal bars. The butter contributes to the golden crust of the dense, moist fruit-studded treats. You can use walnuts instead of pecans or substitute raisins for the dates.
Let your toddler help by:
• Locating and gathering the ingredients.
• Pouring the measured dry ingredients into the mixing bowl.
• Adding the measured dates, apples, and pecans to the batter.
