I tried this recipe last night - followed it to a T and after the bars cooled I tried cutting them and they all broke apart in small pieces and were more like crumbles than bars. The taste was a bit bland however I will not throw them away. I will use them for a morning cereal or as a topping (with a little sprucing up for flavor) for some kind of fruit crisp.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
  2. Lightly oil a 9-inch square baking pan [for recipe making 12 bars] or coat it with nonstick cooking spray.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk egg white, honey, oil, vanilla and cinnamon until blended.
  4. In a mixing bowl, combine granola and raisins. Stir in the egg white/honey mixture until well coated. With a wet rubber spatula, press granola into the prepared pan.
  5. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool in the pan on a wire rack. Cut into bars. (Wrapped tightly, the bars will keep for up to 5 days.).
