Granola Bars

A couple of weeks ago a friend of mine posted a link on Facebook to Tasty’s Facebook page, with a video and recipe for granola bars.  They looked good, and I’m glad I printed the recipe out that same day, because Tasty posts so frequently that I can’t find it anymore!  I was able to revamp it for my allergies, and was able to use a couple of my new favourite products in them as well.  Win/win.  The only concern I had was whether they would hold together well, and as you will see in the pictures, they do.

Granola Bars

4 tbsp. coconut oil

1/3 cup brown sugar

1/4 cup honey

1/2 tbsp. creamy SuperButter

1/2 tsp. vanilla

2 cups gluten free oats

1 cup Enjoy Life crunchy rice cereal

1/2 cup (or so) Enjoy Life mini chocolate chips

Melt together coconut oil, brown sugar, honey, and SuperButter in a saucepan.  Cook on medium heat until thickened. Remove from heat and add vanilla.  Fold in oats and cereal.  Put into a parchment line 8 x 8 pan, flattening slightly with a spatula.  Sprinkle chocolate chips on top and press down to help them stick to the bars.  Refrigerate for 30 minutes or so before slicing.
