Gluten Free Granola Bar Recipe
This is, hands down, the best granola bar recipe I have made in a long time. It is also gluten free and freezable! You can probably tweak this recipe to suit your needs. For one of my children, I would make this without pecans and it would taste just as good!
Ingredients for Gluten Free Granola Bar Recipe
1 c. coconut
8 ozs. mini chocolate chips
6 Tbsp honey
1/2 tsp vanilla
8 Tbsp butter
1 3/4 c. gluten free oats
1 c. oat flour (put a cup of your gluten free oats in a blender and mix well)
3/4 c. brown sugar
1 tsp cinnamon
1 1/3 c. chopped pecans
Mix all together well. I lined a cookie sheet with parchment paper to keep it from sticking. Bake in a preheated oven (325) for 25 minutes but you need to turn it every 5 minutes to keep it cooking evenly. Get out of the oven and cool. Once cooled, put it in the freezer for about 30 minutes (the entire pan). This step helps you to cut the bars without making a mess.
After that 30 minutes, get it out and cut it into bars. I wrapped each bar in plastic wrap and placed each individual bar into a gallon sized baggie. I did this to help keep their shapes. Also, I pack these in my child’s lunch box and didn’t want to make a mess. I kept mine in the freezer to just keep them fresher longer. There really wasn’t a need for that because we ate them pretty quickly.
