1 1/4 cup flour
1 1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup cocoa
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
2/3 cup shortening
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla
5 oz strained prunes, pureed in the blender until smooth
1/2 cup chopped nuts (I used walnuts)
1/2 cup flaked sweetened coconut
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Whisk together the flour, sugar, cocoa, baking powder and salt. Add the shortening, eggs, syrup, vanilla and prunes and beat until smooth and combined. Fold in coconut and nuts.
Smooth batter into a greased 112 x 9 inch pan and bake for 30 minutes, or until edges pull away from sides.
Let cool completely before slicing into bars.
