Go for Broke Day with a Special Recipe

Go for Broke day is the day for those that gamble for money, love or just chance. It is a great day to put it all on line and take a chance. Great day to take a chance on that risky project or to take upon a new job or even ask that special gal out on a date. Not one to take many chances well today may be the special day to hold it just a bit looser. Go for broke and check the risk. Today we took a chance and are offering this great new recipe to you for raisin and spice day

Christine's Chewy Raisin and Spice (With Oats and Other Healthy Stuff) Bars

1/3 cup honey
1 cup strong black tea
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cup light brown sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla
1/4 cup applesauce
1 cup whole wheat flour
1/4 cup wheat germ
1/2 cup oats
1 tablespoon ground cinnamon
1 tsp ground ginger
1 tsp all-spice
1/2 tsp ground cloves
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg

Preheat oven to 350.  Line the bottom of  a 13" x 9" baking pan with parchment paper.  In a microwave safe container, microwave the tea, the honey, and raisins for 2 minutes.  Stir and microwave for another 2 minutes if the honey is still thick.  Let the raisins, tea, and honey stand for at least 5 minutes to allow the raisins to plump up a little.  Combine the dry ingredients in a medium bowl together and set aside.  Measure the brown sugar into a large bowl.  Pour the tea/honey/raisins over the brown sugar.  Stir until  all the sugar has dissolved.  Add the vanilla and applesauce and stir until applesauce is spread throughout.  Add dry ingredients and mix until well combined.  Pour into prepared dish and bake for 40 minutes.  Cool completely.  Cut into bars about 1"x 2".
