- 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/2 tsp cinnamon

- 1 cup honey
- 3/4 cup frozen apple juice concentrate, thawed
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1 1/2 cups chopped pitted dates
- 1/2 cup raisins
- 3/4 cup boiling water
- Heat oven to 350F. Line a 13″ X 9″ baking pan with parchment. Set aside.
- In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, crispy rice cereal, salt, baking soda, cream of tartar and spices.
- In a pan, combine the honey and apple juice and heat to blend thoroughly. Cool slightly, then stir in vanilla. Using an electric mixer on low speed, beat the honey mixture into the flour mixture. Batter will appear soupy Pour half the batter in the prepared pan.
- To prepare the filling, combine the dates, raisins, and boiling water in a food processor or blender. Blend for 1 minute or until the fruit is pureed. Spoon filing over the batter, spreading evenly.
- Pour remaining batter over filling, spreading evenly. Bake 30-35 minutes or until golden and firm to touch when pressed lightly. Allow to cool completely on a rack before cutting. Remove from pan. Peel off parchment and cut into 32 two-inch pieces.
