Grab this on the way out the door with a nonfat Greek yogurt for added protein! (And if you're going away for hours and can't have the yogurt or anything perishable, check out the recipe below).
Ingredients
  • 2 large egg whites
  • ½ cup old-fashioned oats
  • 2 tablespoons raisins (or dried fruit of your choice), finely diced
  • ¼ cup sliced almonds
  • ⅛ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup natural peanut butter
  • ½ cup light brown sugar
  • 2-1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 300 degrees. Line an 8-inch square baking pan with 2 crisscrossed rectangles of parchment paper. You’ll want to leave at least a 2 inch overhang at 2 opposite ends of the pan.
  2. In a large bowl, mix oats,, raisins and almonds.
  3. Add oil, brown sugar, peanut butter, salt and cinnamon to a saucepan and heat over low heat. Whisk the ingredients together, for about 5 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved.
  4. Allow mixture to cool for about 5 minutes. Then whisk in the egg whites.
  5. Pour the mixture over the oats, almonds and raisins and mix to moisten them evenly.
  6. Pour the mixture into the baking pan; smooth the top.
  7. Bake approximately 30 minutes, until top is firm. Allow to cool 10 minutes. Using the paper to lift, pull the bars out of the pans. After cooling completely, cut into bars with serrated knife. Enjoy!!
