granola bars topped with nut butter


Love those granola bars fresh from the bakery? …. unfortunately so do I and they are not gluten free 😦

So I have come up with a winning healthy recipe to replace those. Make large batches, freeze them and take them out when needed. The best thing about these bars was they kept me full for a long time. In my very busy life that it is so important that I have enough energy to keep up.

3 cups gf oats, pulsed in food processor

1 1/2 cups quinoa flakes

1 cup ground almond

1/2 cups water

1/2 cup sunflower oil

1/2 cup of honey

about 3/4 cup of nut butter (I used almond) melted a little in the microwave

combine dry in ingredients in a bowl.

 

combine wet ingredients. then add to the dry ingredients. place in a greased baking dish, press down. bake at 300 for about 30 minutes. take out of oven, while hot add the nut butter. cool a little, cut and place on a rack to cool completely.
