Honey Oat Bars

Quick, easy and so very tasty! Adapted from a recipe in "The Australian Women's Weekly: The Big Book of Beautiful Biscuits".

3/4 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup sultanas (or raisins of your choice) coarsly chopped, or currents
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/3 cup Splenda, or other artificial sweetener
1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
1/2 cup margarine, melted
1 Tbsp. honey
2 Tbsp No-Sugar Added Orange or Apricot spread
Combine oats, raisins, flour, baking powder, Splenda and coconut. Melt margarine; add honey and orange or apricot spread. Add margarine mixture to dry ingredients, and mix until well combined and oat mixture is well coated and clings together.
Line an 8" square pan with foil, and grease lightly with cooking spray. Press mixture evenly into pan. Bake at 350 *F for 15 minutes, or until lightly browned.
Cool, then lift foil from pan and cut carefully with a sharp knife into 24 - 36 pieces.
