Gluten Free Granola Bars

March 1, 2010

Ingredients:

1 cup Flour (I used a blend of rice and corn)
1/2 cup Cocoa nibs
1/2 cup Sunflower seeds
1/2 cup Almonds, crushed
1/2 cup shredded Coconut
1/2 cup Puffed amaranth seed
1/2 cup “Multi seed” (I use this blend from a health food store that is called “Multisemilla,” which is a mix of organic crushed sunflower, sesame, and flax seeds)
1/2 cup Honey
1 t. Cinnamon
2 t. Vanilla
1 Egg, beaten
1/2 cup Vegetable oil
1/2 t. Sea salt

Preparation:

Preheat oven to 325°F/165° C).

Lightly grease a cookie sheet, or use a Silpat (I used a greased sheet, thinking these were too thick for using the Silpat, but next time I’ll use it).

In a large mixing bowl combine all ingredients.

Lightly press mixture into the prepared sheet, spreading it out evenly.

Bake for 18-22 minutes or until golden brown. Let cool for 10 minutes before cutting into bars. Let bars cool completely in pan before removing or serving.

Enjoy! These bars are amazingly delicious, and very healthy!

Keep in mind you can also add dried fruit or oats, if you like.

One change I’ll make next time is to add 1/2 teaspoon or so of xanthan gum. They’re very soft, and on the verge of falling apart.
