DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 300 degrees.
  • Line an 8 inch square baking pan with two criss-crossed rectangles of parchment paper, leaving a 2-inch overhang at opposite ends.
  • In a large bowl, combine oats, almonds and cranberries.
  • 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.
  • Let cool slightly; whisk in egg white.
  • Pour over oat mixture; stir until moistened.
  • Spread evenly in bottom of pan; smooth top.
  • 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.
  • Let cool 10 minutes.
  • Lift out of pan, using paper as handles.
  • Let cool completely, cut into bars with a serrated knife.
