Serves: 12 bars
Ingredients
  • ⅓ cup honey
  • ¼ cup dairy-free buttery spread or margarine, melted (can possibly sub coconut oil)
  • 3 egg whites
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon almond extract
  • 3 cups dairy-free granola
  • ½ cup sliced almonds
  • ¾ cup dried cherries (optionally coarsely chopped)
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 350ºF and line a 9-inch square baking pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the honey, buttery spread, egg whites, cinnamon, and almond extract.
  3. Stir in the granola, almonds, and cherries until well coated.
  4. Firmly and evenly press the mixture into your prepared pan. If it's too sticky, use a small piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap to press it in.
  5. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until lightly browned. Place the pan on a cooling rack and let cool completely.
  6. Lift the mixture out using the parchment paper and place it on a cutting board. Cut into thirds one way, and fourths the other way to make 12 bars.
