  • 5 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Fruit Bar filling:

  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 1/4 cup raspberries
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup agave syrup

Preheat Oven 350 degrees:

Grease an 11 x 7 baking dish. Combine all the shortbread ingredients in a bowl. Press down on the bottom of the prepared dish. Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until edges are slightly golden.

In a small saucepan, mix all the fruit bar filling ingredients. Bring to a boil. Remove from heat, let cool. Spread over the shortbread crust. Let the fruit bar filling completely set before cutting. (Note: cool in the refrigerator, if needed.)
