    Scissors Homemade Granola Bars

    Homemade Granola Bars
    2 cups certified gluten-free oats
    1/2 cup ground organic flax seed
    1 cup chopped raw walnuts
    3/4 cup organic dried cranberries
    2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    1/2 teaspoon sea salt
    2 large egg whites
    1/2 cup honey1/2 cup light olive oil (or your favorite cooking oil)
    Preheat oven to 325 F
    Place gluten-free oatmeal, ground flax seeds and chopped walnuts in a 13 x 9-inch baking pan, preferably a heavy metal pan. If using a glass baking dish, line with parchment paper or foil. Stir to mix and place in preheated oven for about 15 minutes or until the mixture just begins to turn golden. All you want to do is lightly toast the mixture for flavor. Remove from oven and cool to room temperature.

    Add brown cane sugar, cinnamon and salt to the gluten-free oatmeal mixture and stir to combine.
    Place egg whites, honey and oil in a large mixing bowl. Use a hand whisk to combine the mixture. Add the toasted gluten-free oatmeal mixture and the dried cranberries to the egg white mixture and thoroughly stir to coat the dry ingredients.
    Lightly grease the baking pan and turn the granola mixture into the pan. Use a spatula or lightly dampened hand to press the granola mixture flat. Distribute the mixture evenly in the pan for even baking.
    Bake in preheated oven for 30 to 35 minutes or until the granola bars are a deep, golden brown. Remove and allow the granola bars to completely cool in the pan on a wire rack. When cool use a spatula to remove the whole rectangle of baked granola to a cutting board. Use a large, sharp knife to cut the rectangle into fourteen 4 1/2 x 1 1/2-inch bars. Wrap each bar separately in waxed paper and store in an air-tight container for one week or freeze.

    Are the bars hard or soft when they are done?
