Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-by-13-inch baking dish with cooking spray.

  • Whisk together flour, baking powder and salt in a small bowl. Beat together sugar, oil and egg whites in a large bowl with an electric mixer on high speed until smooth, making sure no lumps of sugar remain. Add the dry ingredients and beat on low speed just until blended. Stir in granola and dried fruit. (The batter will be quite thick.)

  • Transfer the batter to the prepared baking dish; smooth the top. Bake until golden brown on top and they feel set when lightly pressed in the center, 20 to 25 minutes. Let cool in the baking dish on a rack. Cut into 20 bars.


Make Ahead Tip: Store at room temperature in an airtight container.

I used my own recipe for low-fat low-sugar granola and reduced the light brown sugar called for in the recipe to 3/4 cup. Since I already have cranberries dried cherries and apricots in my granola I reduced the cranberries to 1/2 cup and added 1/2 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips. The bars were delicious and disappeared in a hurry! Pros: Cons: Read More
