Healthy Snack Bar Recipe

granola bar in meal cubeI love this recipe! The kids devour them and it gives my gluten free life a little excitement 🙂 I make these in Meal Cubes so I can just throw the lid on and put them in the fridge. When I send them in lunches I normally cut into rectangles and put in Wean Tubs so they look more like a store bought granola bar but sometimes the girls request ‘bite size’ pieces in Wean Cubes.

Awesome Granola Bars

2 cups gluten free rolled oats
1 cup gluten free rice cereal
¼ cup flax seed
¼ cup chia
½ cup honey
¾ cup organic peanut butter (I’ve used no-nut butter & almond butter-both were great!)
½ tsp vanilla
optional additions: chocolate chips, dried berries, coconut, chopped nuts

In large bowl mix oats, cereal, flax, & chia together and set aside.

Mix honey, peanut butter & vanilla in saucepan over medium heat. Stir until melted and well blended (about 5 minutes). Combine your oat mixture with the peanut butter mixture.

Press into 2 Meal Cubes. Let sit in fridge for 1 hour. Cut into rectangles and store in Wean Tubs for lunches! Enjoy.

Cheers,
