    stingo's Note:

    If you're tired of the commercial granola bars, give this one a try. The manager at the gym I go to recommended this recipe and a friend was kind enough to make a batch for me. Delicious. (Original source appears to be a magazine, though I don't know which one.)

    1. 1
      Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
    2. 2
      Line an 8 inch square baking pan with two criss-crossed rectangles of parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang at opposite ends.
    3. 3
      In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds and cranberries.
    4. 4
      In a small saucepan, whisk together oil, brown sugar, peanut butter, cinnamon, salt and water over low heat until the sugar has dissolved, about 5 minutes.
    5. 5
      Let cool slightly; whisk in egg white.
    6. 6
      Pour over oat mixture; stir until moistened.
    7. 7
      Spread evenly in bottom of pan; smooth top.
    8. 8
      Bake until top is firm, about 30 minutes. Note: The firm top is your best indicator that it's ready - if it's too soft the granola will be crumbly, if it's too hard it will be too brittle.
    9. 9
      Let cool 10 minutes.
    10. 10
      Lift out of pan, using paper as handles.
    11. 11
      Let cool completely, cut into bars with a serrated knife.

      These were good, though not as bar-like as I was hoping. I substituted more oats instead of adding almonds and cranberries because I didn't have any. I added chopped chocolate for a peanut butter cup effect. There is a quarter of the pan missing already and they are still that should say something. A yummy dessert maybe, but not the granola bar I was searching for.

      I was not expecting to like this (I really don't care for granola bars and never have). But I was surprised by not only how easy this was but how good it tasted. They are more like a gooey bar cookie and not overly sweet. I added a bunch of different nuts/seeds including cashews, sunflower seeds, almonds, etc.; dried cranberries and raisins. Half of the homemade peanut butter was replaced with tahini and I really liked the flavor of those two in this recipe. Reviewed for Adopt a Veg.

      These were quite simple to prepare, but I am not sure that I baked them quite long enough. I read the warning in the recipe that the top needed to be firm, and I thought it was, but the bars are quite crumbly. The flavor is very good, though. The pop of the dried cranberry balances well with the heartiness of the oats and almonds and peanut butter.
