Cherry Orange Oatmeal Outdoor Bars
·         Natural spray oil for pan
·         3 cups gluten-free rolled oats
·         1/3 cup smooth almond butter
·         1 cup dried sour cherries, or a mix of cherries and raisins
·         1/2 cup orange juice
·         1/3 cup honey
·         1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
·         1/2 teaspoon salt
·         3 egg whites
