Gluten-Free Granola Bars

Gluten-Free Granola Bars

cookingmama 0

"These are versatile chewy granola bars. You can add or omit as your allergies dictate. I enjoy raisins and sesame seeds, with less chocolate chips. These are not overly sweet. I buy roasted almonds with no salt and chop them in the food processor. My cashews are usually roasted and salted. It can be made with raw nuts. You could use almond or soy butter if allergic to peanuts."

So yummy! To make these a little healthier, I subbed agave nectar for the corn syrup and brown rice cereal instead of regular rice cereal... Will be making these again!

Delicious but be sure to carefully read the ingredients on the crispy rice cereal. "Malt" refers to barley malt and that means it is NOT gluten-free. Kellogs Rice Crispies are NOT gluten free. ...

Well, I didn't have any corn syrup so I had to improvise and it turned out amazing! I will make this again. Instead of corn syrup I used 1/2 cup of honey and 1/2 cup of aunt jemima syrup (haha)....

These are delicious! Recently going gluten-free, we were missing our fiber bars. I have made these several times and they always disappear quickly! We like them best with cranberries added. ...

This recipe is versatile enough that you can add or subtract ingredients to please any picky eater! I used chopped walnuts and cashews instead of the almonds. I also used semi-sweet chocolate ...

THis is exactly what I was looking for! I used almonds and pecans, added dried cranberries and blueberries and skipped the flax. This was so great and easy I will continue to make it! Thank you!

These are REALLY good, not too sweet. I use chopped peanuts instead of cashews just because it is what I always have on hand. Great snack for GFCF kids and adults, and really quick and easy to...

Easy to make and wholesome, too. Most commercial energy bars have way too much sugar. In contrast, these are tasty, but not rot-your-teeth sweet. My daughter loves them. To keep them crunchy, I ...

Gor to admit, I was really disappointed. Was looking for something for school lunches, but with all of the peanut butter and almonds and cashew, this definitely isn't it. :(
