Fruitcake Bars - with thanks (once again) to David Lebovitz

Here's my gluten free version of David Lebovitz's Fruitcake Bars, also known as "Friendship Bars." No disgusting, neon green and yellow candied fruit here - just honest to goodness dates, apricots and nuts. All I did to make it gluten free was switch the 6 T of all purpose flour for 2 T each of tapioca, sorghum and sweet rice (mochi) flour. Whilst baking , it filled the house with the most divine fragrance. And they're delicious too! Click the link above for David's recipe.

Hi Priya. I used about 1/2 cup of sunflower seeds because I didn't have enough walnuts and almonds on hand. The bars are very tasty, but, FYI, I don't think the seeds were the best choice. Let me know how yours turn out!
