Mixed Fruit Bars

Doesn’t it look like Summer???

I love “painting” with Vibrant, Colorful, Different shapes, and Textures Fruit!

Even though it feels like summer most of the year in Florida, the Abundance of fruit is not always available. I Love the Summer selection most of all!!!

How to make Mixed Fruit Bars

It takes very little time to put this recipe together, about 15 to 20 minutes, and then baking time around 30 minutes.

I use my double-proportion recipe most of the time and my Large Rachael Ray Cookie Pan (11″ x 17″) that is about to die since I use it so much.

Your baking time will vary depending on the baking pan you choose.

Mixed Fruit Bars

  • These fruit bars can last in the refrigerator for about a week, you can easily reheat it in the morning.
  • I call it my pancakes-alternative recipe. My son loves it in the morning with a bit of powdered sugar on top.

Mixed Fruit Bars

  • I use A LOT of fruit on the bottom, probably 2 pounds.
  • Sometimes I decorate, other times when lazy, the easiest way is to spread all the fruit on the bottom and just spread the batter thinly on top. Easy, right?

Mixed Fruit Bars

  • Wash and dry the fruit and dust with flour before adding it to the batter.
  • You can fold the fruit gently into the batter, or add it to the bottom and pour batter on top. Either method works.
