Apple Cranberry Bars

This recipe for apple cranberry bars turned out so good, I had to eat some before writing this down. These are moist, delicious and oh so yummy. I cannot believe this recipe originated from a diabetic cookbook. Remember how I wrote about picking apples at a you-pick farm? This recipe is another way to utilize the apples I picked that day with my family.
