Chewy Granola Bars

I found this recipe - a HEALTHY one that can be modified to fit individual tastes.

Modification ideas:honey instead of oil, chocolate covered raisins, drizzle chocolate or peanut butter on when you take it out of oven, use a variety of dried fruits, use different flavors of granola or oatmeal instead of the seeds. Just remember always keep the wet to dry ratio that same when you modify a recipe!

4 egg whites OR 2 whole eggs
1/4 cup sugar
4 TSP vegetable oil
1 TSP ground cinnamon
3/4 TSP vanilla extract
1 2/3 cups plain low fat granola
1 cup raisins
3 TBSP toasted wheat germ
3 TBSP raw sunflower seeds
4 TSP sesame seeds

flatten mixture into a greased 9x13 baking dish
bake 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until edges appear golden brown
cool inverted on a wire rack
once cool, cut and store in airtight container
