This is an altered recipe I found online. It's great to have on the ride when you need a snack. Tastes great, healthy and they're much cheaper than store-bought bars

- 8 large egg whites, beaten
- 3⁄4 cup whole wheat flour
- 1⁄4 cup wheat germ
- 1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 cup nonfat dry milk powder
- 3⁄4 cup rolled oats
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 3⁄4 cup brown sugar
- 2 cups chopped dried fruit
- 2 1⁄2 cups nuts, chopped
- 3⁄4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
- 1⁄4 cup sesame seeds
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Grease a 9x13 pan.
- Beat together eggs and oil.
- Sift together dry ingredients except fruit. Add flour to eggs, combine, then stir in fruit, nuts, and chips.

- Cool, cut into 24 pieces, wrap in foil and freeze.
These taste great!! Do they need to stay in the freezer or is it just to harden them up?
very good! I take them with me to school and eat them for breakfast almost every day.
I love these! I am a mom who wants to provide healthy snacking alternatives to my family. I feel really good about making these available to the kids. I also found that they are perfect for me when I run out of time for breakfast in the morning or am craving something sweet on my way home from work!
I have made these in bulk, cut them, wrapped them in parchment paper, then freezer sealed them. They taste great once they've thawed and last a long time in the freezer.
