Long slow bake, low heat - that's what makes our granola bars work so well. Maple syrup keeps everything just moist enough to pack into muffin tins for a final bake - the perfect shape for stacking in the cookie jar.

Ingredients

Directions

Preheat the oven to 225 degrees F. Toss the oats, almonds, pecans, pumpkin seeds, wheat germ and sesame seeds in a large bowl. 

Melt the butter with 2 tablespoons maple syrup in a small saucepan over medium-low heat. Remove from the heat and stir in the vanilla. Pour the syrup mixture over the oat mixture and stir to coat evenly. 

Spread the mixture on a baking sheet. Bake until golden brown, stirring occasionally, about 1 1/2 hours. Remove the mixture from the oven, but leave the oven on. 

Transfer the granola to a large bowl. Stir in the remaining maple syrup, the dried fruit and egg whites. Spray twelve 1/2-cup nonstick muffin cups with nonstick cooking spray and firmly press about 1/3 cup of the mixture into each. Bake until set, about 45 minutes. 

Transfer the muffin tin to a rack and cool 15 minutes before unmolding. Store cooled granola up to 1 month at room temperature in a tightly sealed container.
