Apple Cinnamon Raisin Bars


  • 2 cup whole wheat pastry flour (the original calls for all-purpose)
  • 1 ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp fine-grain sea salt
  • 2 cups light brown sugar, packed
  • 2 eggs (large or XL)
  • ½ cup butter, at room temp
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups diced apples (I used a mix of Honey Crisp and Granny Smith)
  • ¾ cup raisins
  • cup walnuts, chopped


  • Preheat oven to 350° F
  • Line a pan with foil and spray with cooking spray. Set aside.
  • In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together flours, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, and sea salt.
  • In the bowl of your mixer, add the brown sugar, eggs, butter, and vanilla until beat until very smooth (~ 3 minutes).
  • With mixing speed on low, gradually add flour mixture stirring just until incorporated. Stir in diced apples, raisins, and walnuts. With a spatula, spread batter evenly into prepared pan.
  • Bake for 35 minutes or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. Cool completely before cutting into bars and serving.
