    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.)

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    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 warm...so 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.

      WOW, these bars are sooooo tasty! They were gone super quickly in our house as everyone raved about them and couldnt stop eating them. I used home-made tahini in place of the peanut butter as I cant have peanuts and it worked out nicely. The sesame seeds from the tahini added a more earthy taste, but I liked that. Instead of almonds I added sunflower seeds, but other than that stuck to your recipe. The bars stuck together nicely, but I did have to bake them in a smaller pan so that they were really chunky. The cinnamon and oats paired very well and the cranberries were a lovely fruity addition. I will certainly make these tasty treats again! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing another keeper with us, stingo! Made and reviewed for my chosen chef during Veggie Swap #22 May 2010.
