From the Culinary Institute of America who feel that you can make truly healthy granola bars by starting with low-fat granola and using egg whites instead of oil to bind and crisp the mix

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.
- 1 large egg white, lightly beaten
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 2 teaspoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- 1⁄2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 2 cups low-fat granola
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
Directions See How It's Made
- Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C).
- Lightly oil a 9-inch square baking pan [for recipe making 12 bars] or coat it with nonstick cooking spray.
- In a small bowl, whisk egg white, honey, oil, vanilla and cinnamon until blended.
- 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.
- 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.).
