Big Batch Applesauce Snack Bars

We always have applesauce in the house and I love that it adds a natural sweetness and moist texture to baked treats for kids.  My mother-in-law works in the kitchen at their school and she shared this recipe with me.  She said it is one of her favorite treats that she’s made for school lunches.  She gave me a recipe to use in an extra large commercial size pan or a smaller size that fits in a regular 9×13 inch pan.

  1. Very thin and dry and I only cooked them for 18 minutes. Should probably be made in a 9×13 pan not a large commercial baking sheet.

    1. Thank you for trying this recipe! I’m so sorry to say that I made a typo and you are correct. The commercial baking sheet should only be used for the big batch recipe and the smaller size calls for a 9×13 inch pan. I’ve made the update, again I apologize.
