I have been finding that I miss granola bars. Yes there are some out there that are gluten free. The problem is that with multiple food allergies, even the products that are gluten free just don’t work because many still contain sugar or milk. The other thing is that those products just don’t taste that good. So I started playing with a bunch of ingredients, trying to make a healthy yet tasty granola bar. I think this worked out well, but I’ll continue making different flavours so that there is are variety.

Do you ever miss nice chewy granola bars? I did!

I wanted something that tasted sweet and yet was healthy!  I found it now 🙂

  3. Hi Sandi, was wondering if Rice Malt Syrup could be used instead of honey to reduce the fructose content? making them almost sugar free

    • This is from Wikipedia… “Quinoa is a grain-like crop grown primarily for its edible seeds.”
      Some people consider quinoa a grain, but it is actually a seed 🙂
