Gluten Free Granola Bars
4 cups gluten free granola
1/2 cup chopped dried fruit, chia seeds, flax seeds or a combination
1/3 cup granulated sugar
1/3 cup certified gluten free oat flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/4 cup oil of your choice
1/3 cup peanut butter, optional
1/4 cup honey, maple syrup or agave syrup
1 tablespoon water
Preheat the oven to 350°F. Lightly grease a 9″ x 13″ pan.
Place the granola, sugar, oat flour and salt in a large bowl, stir together to combine. In a medium sized bowl, whisk together the vanilla, oil, honey, peanut butter, and water. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry to combine. It will be crumbly. Spread in the prepared pan pressing down to cover the bottom.
Bake the bars for 25 to 30 minutes, until they’re just starting to brown and bubble around the edges. Remove from the oven, and cool for 10 minutes. Use a knife to cut the bars while they’re still warm in the pan. Let cool completely before removing from the pan.
Makes about a dozen depending on how big you cut them.
These would make a great gift for someone. Make them some today.
Team Your Gluten Free Kitchen
Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone walk around with you at the store letting you know which food items are gluten free or not? Your local grocery store has over 30,000 items in it.
That’s a lot of labels to read. And new products come out all the time causing more label reading. So… I found this handy guide to help me out when I am looking for specific things in the store.
They do a lot of the leg work for. For example: I want to make a sandwich. What deli meats are safe for me? Or, I want to use a certain seasoning blend. Does it have hidden gluten in it?
This guide will help with these problems and a whole lot more. I highly recommend picking one up for yourself. It will save a lot of time.
