I first tried this one back in 2010 but was too rushed to review it. Since I had to come back and reprint it I am taking the time to give it the kudos it deserves. Every time I've made these bars all who try them ask for the recipe. I skip the glaze because maple syrup is too hard to come by here in Greece but no one seems to miss it, and I use extra virgin olive oil because that is readily available and inexpensive here. Personally the baking soda provides enough salt for my taste. When I do add the raisins I only use 1/2 cup of sugar, if I add nuts instead then I use the full cup. I also find that if you mix the pie spices with the moist rather than the dry ingredients the flavors pop more so one teaspoon does the trick. Tasty, easy to prepare and comparatively high on the "good for you" scale!
