Low Fat Fruit and Oat Granola Bars
2 cups old-fashioned oats
1 cup plain toasted oat cereal (such as Cheerios)
1 cup whole wheat pastry flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp cinnamon
1 cup dried mixed fruit
1/2 cup honey
2 egg whites
1 medium banana, mashed (about 1/2 cup)
1/4 cup canola oil
Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Line a 9 by 13 inch baking pan with foil, with an inch or so overhanging the ends. Spray with nonstick cooking spray. Spread oats on a large microwave-safe plate and microwave for 2 minutes, stirring half way through. Place oats, oat cereal, flour, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Stir in dried fruit. Add honey, egg whites, mashed banana and oil. Stir well with a wooden spoon until well combined. Empty mixture into lined baking pan, and press down with some waxed paper or with wet hands.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, until edges are golden. Cool for 10 minutes in pan, then grasp foil ends and lift out of pan. Cut into 18 bars and place on a cooling rack. Each bar has about 160 calories.
