I got my second order from Vitacost today that contained my Gluten- Free Quick Cooking Oats. We have been missing our granola bars since moving to a gluten- free diet. The order arrived an hour ago and I didn’t waste anytime getting started since it was almost snack time. I started to make them the way I always make them and decided to play some with the recipe. I had a craving for something crispy. So, this is how this recipe was birthed. Enjoy.
1/2 cup organic cinnamon raisin peanutbutter
1/3 cup honey
1/4 cup butter
1 1/2 cup quick cooking oats
1 handful of coconut
1/2 cup of mini chocolate chips
2-3 cups Gluten Free Rice Squares cereal
Melt the peanut butter, honey, and butter in a small saucepan. Let cool and add your oats, cereal, coconut, and chocolate chips. Mix together in a big bowl. Serve with a spoon. You could add powdered sugar like monkey munch, but my crew does not need the added sugar. Store in the freezer for crispier texture.
I still made my bars, but made them with quick cooking oats and put them in rubber muffin cups to store in the freezer.
Hope you enjoy my twist on the granola bars! If you make them and like them please let me know. Your feedback helps me when I write 😉
