INGREDIENTS

2 cups Desiccated coconut, unsweetened
1 1/2 cup Oats, rolled, old fashioned *
1 1/2 cup Raisins
2 cups Sunflower seeds
1/3 cup Sesame seeds
3/4 cup Peanuts or soy nuts
1/2 cup Dried fruit, apples, cranberries, apricots
1/2 tsp Salt
1 cup Honey, liquid
1 tsp Vanilla extract
1/2 cup Peanut butter

DIRECTIONS

1. Mix all ingredients together. Thoroughly blend the honey, vanilla and peanut butter.
(You may need to mix with greased hands to ensure everything is mixed together.)

2. Line jelly roll pan (rimmed cookie sheet) with greased parchment paper. Pat mixture firmly into pan with greased hands or heated spoon. If you want thinner bars use two jelly roll pans.

3. Bake at 275 F till golden brown, 50 to 60 minutes. Remove from oven and once again pat firmly to ensure the bars hold together.

4. Cut into bars or squares, depending on what format you want.

A 40 gram bar has 5 grams of oats (rolled oats). Enjoy!

One thought on “Gluten-Free Granola Bars

  1. Wow it never really occurred to me that I could make my own granola bars. I hope these come out well! I hate hard granola bars so much. I can’t even believe some companies sell granolas just like this as well, as if that’s the way they’re supposed to be. I like them moist and chewy!
