Anyone know of a good brand of soy- and gluten-free granola/breakfast bars?  I'm just now realizing that I think soy (including soy lecithin) is making me sick, so I'm trying to eliminate it from my diet.  Unfortunately, the breakfast/granola bars that I always grab to eat when I'm out and about all seem to have soy lecithin in them.  Any recommendations?

i have a soy problem as well - i make my own bars, but i also can't do oats..  so it's chex to the rescue!  and nuts and usually craisins and some 'enjoy life' chocolate chips <no soy or soy lecithin yay :)  there are some good (easy) recipes on the interwebs.  i just wing it.  you can use corn syrup, honey, molasses, corn syrup, maple syrup, etc to make the 'glue' - sometimes i will mix peanut butter into it, sometimes apple sauce or apple butter.  it depends on what you like :)

If you want store-bought ones, try Picky Bars, Lara Bars or Bonk Breaker bars. 

 

If you want good recipes, try ohsheglows.com under Recipes/Breakfast. Most are simple, and if you keep the ingredients on hand, are easy to make.

I recently found Kind granola bars.  They're great.  I think they're carried by Walgreens.

Most KIND bars have soy, unfortunately. I'm also a soy-free person, so finding the illusive soy-lectin free chocolate in things is a killer. Lara bars are good. GoMacro bars are really good if you need a lot of energy (most are gluten-free/soy free, but not all, so check). But those are date based. If you want granola, Main Street Bakery makes pretty good ones. I found a brand in Ontario called Taste of Nature that's pretty good. Not sure about the US, but go to your local health food/bulk food/good grocery store and check all the labels.

 

Damn soy! I feel your pain.

- mild gastritis seen on endoscopy Oct 2012. Not sure if healed or not.
- Family members with Celiac: Mother, sister, aunt on mother's side, aunt and uncle on father's side, more being diagnosed every year.

If you want to make some - these are delicious.  I cut them, wrap in plastic wrap and freeze in a freezer bag.  They thaw pretty quick and are still yummy!

I can't do soy either and I make these:

 

Giant Granola Oatmeal Cookies

 

Gluten-Free and Dairy-Free Makes 12.

 

Dry Ingredients:

2 cups Certified Gluten Free Quick Cooking Oats (Bob's Red Mill, for example)

1 cup Almond or coconut Flour

1/3 cup Organic Coconut Palm Sugar (or you can use Light Brown Sugar)

1/4 cup Quinoa Flakes

1/4 cup Ground Flax seed meal (or Chia Seeds )

2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

3/4 tsp. Celtic Sea Salt

1 cup Dried Fruit of choice: pick one --or use a combination to equal 1 cup Raisins, Golden Raisins, (SunMaid) or Dried cranberries (Craisins are gluten-free), Dried apples, apricots, cherries, pineapple, mango, etc.

1/2 cup Seeds or Nuts of choice – pick one or use a combination to equal 1/2 cup (Pepitas, Sunflower Seeds, Chopped Pistachios, walnuts, Cashews, Macadamia Nuts, Pecans, etc) ..

1/4 cup Chocolate Chips (I use Enjoy life Brand in my baking but Hershey Toll House chips are gluten-free)

 

Wet ingredients:

1 egg, beaten

2/3 cup Cold-Pressed Unrefined Coconut Oil or Canola Oil

1/2 cup Grade B Maple Syrup

1 TBSLP. Vanilla

 

Directions:

  1.  Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  

  2. Pam spray 2 muffin top pans with regular PAM (not Baking PAM—it has wheat in it).

     

3.  Sift together in large bowl: all dry ingredients.

4.  Make small well in center of dry mixture.  Add: beaten egg , oil, maple syrup, and vanilla.

5.  Squish/mix together with hands.  Press into prepared muffin pans. I wet my hands to squish them a bit to form big “breakfast cookies”.

 

I use these pans:

6.  Bake for about 11-14 minutes, or until edges look slightly golden. Center will look a bit undone.

7. Let pans sit for at least 30 minutes on cooling rack before removing cookies from the tins.

8. Cookies store well and they freeze well, too.! I eat one for breakfast on the run .

Thank you so much everyone!!  I'm excited to try some of the suggestions.

 

I found a Kind bar that's soy free (Oats & Honey) which I absolutely LOVE.  I need to figure out how to make it on my own, although it's not too expensive.  $2.49 for a box of 5 at Walmart.

And they are a hit even with the WEs. :) I got my mom making them. And they freeze well. (but none ever make it to the freezer....)

Hope you like them! Just watch them around 8 mins...oven temps may vary on the time to cook.

For pre-bought bars, I second (or third?) the Enjoy Life ones. If sulfites bother you, these seem much better than most other fruit/nut/breakfast bars in that regard. They are tiny, though - perfect for kids, but it would take two to satisfy an adult.

Daughter: Positive tTG-IgA, DGP-IgA, and DGP-IgG. Celiac confirmed by biopsy in June 2013, at age four. Clear gastrointestinal, behavioral, and neurological/sensory symptoms since very early infancy, even when exclusively breastfeeding.

Me: Diagnosis still unclear after extensive testing: Atypical wheat allergy, severe NCGI, or false negative celiac tests? Doctors disagree.Gluten challenge caused acute gastritis, esophagitis, and angioedema that lasted 4 months and was eventually determined to be a sulfite allergy. Gluten light for 15 years, then gluten free since June 2013.
Long history of eczema, chronic diarrhea, steatorrhea, ataxia, peripheral neuropathy, infertility, chronic insomnia, low cholesterol, vitamin deficiencies, and joint pain. Improved greatly within six months of going gluten-free.
