Eggology Egg White Recipe of the Day: Great Granola Bites (Diabetic Recipe)

Who doesn't love granola these days? When I was a child, granola bars were hard as a rock and dry. They've come a long way. Nowadays they tastier - all sorts of new healthy ingredients have been added such as dried fruits, nuts, peanut or almond butters, even a bit of chocolate. Not only is it a great source of fiber and protein, it is actually easy to make. How healthy is that?!

Our recipe of the day is pretty simple. It's for granola cookies AND it's a diabetic recipe too.

Great Granola Bites (Diabetic Recipe)
Servings: 2 dozen bites
2 cups corn flakes cereal
2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1/4 cup 100% bran cereal
1/2 cup chopped pitted dates or raisins
1/2 cup reduced-fat crunchy peanut butter
1/2 cup Eggology egg whites
5 teaspoons Equal for Recipes (sugar substitute) or 16 packets Equal sweetener
2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine cornflakes, oats, bran cereal and dates in large bowl.

Mix peanut butter, Eggology egg whites, Equal and vanilla in small bowl until smooth; pour over cereal mixture and stir until all ingredients are coated.

Shape mixture into 1-inch mounds; place on lightly greased cookie sheets.

Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until cookies are set and browned 8 to 10 minutes. Cool on wire racks.
