Directions

Preheat the oven to 325 degrees F. Spray a 13-by-9-inch metal baking pan with cooking spray. Line the pan with foil, with the ends extending 2 inches over the short sides of the pan. Spray the foil with cooking spray.

In a glass pie plate, spread out the oats and microwave on high in 1-minute increments until fragrant and golden, stirring occasionally, 4 to 5 minutes. Cool to room temperature.

In a large bowl, combine the cooled oats, cranberries, walnuts, wheat germ, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt. Stir in the honey, oil and egg whites until well mixed. Transfer to the prepared pan. Use a wet hand to press the mixture into an even layer.

Bake until dark golden, about 35 minutes. Cool in the pan on a wire rack.

When cool, use the foil to transfer to a cutting board. Cut lengthwise into 6 strips, and then cut each strip crosswise into quarters. (You should have roughly 3 1/4-by-1 1/2-inch bars.) Bars can be stored in a tightly sealed container at room temperature up to 1 week, or in the freezer up to 1 month.

    These were outstanding. Loved the toasted coconut and almonds. I like sweet and savory this is it. I don't feel like I'm spoiling my supper if I eat one while making supper. They don't harden so much that you break a tooth but don't crumble where you can only use them as a garnish for yogurt. I will be making these again and as gifts for teachers, family and friends.

    I absolutely love this recipe, the bars are super easy to make and always tasty. I add 1 extra teaspoon of honey and a bit more cinnamon. I've also made them with with less cranberries and put a few dark chocolate chips on them when they were warm..yummy. I always cut them when they are warm and i've never had any problems with them falling apart. Today I'm trying them with dried pineapple and dried unsweetened coconut for a different take on them.

    Easy to make, taste good! Will make again. We did substitute pecans for the walnuts. Agree with other reviewers, might add a little more cinnamon.
