Comfort Food Tips

As part of a national media tour, I chatted yesterday with a number of morning show hosts, including CW’s Jennifer Johnson, on comfort food tips to beat the winter blues.

In this segment, we’re discussing healthy, quick snacks, desserts plus my 7-minute salmon recipe.

    Where can I find the recipe for the granola bars? I searched the Skinny Chef website and, but could not find it. Thanks!

    • Hi Marianne, so sorry about that! Here’s the recipe:

      Homemade Granola Bars

      Makes 8 bars

      Non-stick spray
      2 tablespoons low fat peanut butter
      3 egg whites
      1 tablespoon unsulfured molasses
      1/12 cup rolled oats
      ¼ cup prunes, chopped
      2 tablespoon ground flax
      2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds
      1 tablespoon sesame seeds
      1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

      Preheat oven to 350F. Line a 8X8 baking tray with aluminum foil. Coat the foil with cooking spray. In a large bowl combine the peanut butter, egg whites, molasses. Mash the peanut butter into the eggs and molasses with the back of a spoon until a smooth mixture forms.

      Add the oats, prunes, flax, pumpkin seeds, sesame seeds, and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well and transfer to the baking dish. Press into an even layer with a rubber spatula. Coat the top with a light coating of non-stick spray. and spread out into an even layer. Bake 40 to 45 minutes until the oats are golden and firm. Cool completely before cutting into 8 bars.
