Preparation

Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C).

Meanwhile, stir the oats with the dried cranberries, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, wheat germ, flax seeds and sesame seeds.

Pour the egg white mixture over the oat mixture; stir until well coated.

Stir in the chocolate chips until combined.

Press the mixture firmly into a parchment paper-lined, 9 x 13-inch (3 L) baking pan.

Bake for 15 to 18 minutes or until golden around the edges.

Let stand until set (about 1 hour) before cutting into bars.
