Someone in this forum asked for this recipe, but didn't give me an address ~ so I'm posting here, hoping this won't get moved to recipes..... :)

Okay -- homemade, nutrient dense gluten-free granola bars:

4 C crushed flaked gluten-free cereal (like Amazon crunch)
1.5 C sliced almonds, crushed (put 'em in a bag and whack away)
1C dried fruit (cut it into little pieces if need be)
1C mini choc. chips (optional)

mix all those together in a big bowl. In a small saucepan combine

1C peanut butter
3/4 C light corn syrup

until they are warm and smooth

Pour the syrup over the cereal mix, blend well, wrestle into a Pam-sprayed pan (or non stick; don't grease the pan or you'll have it going everywhere) about 9X13 (I actually use a slightly smaller pan--definitely don't use bigger) and press down HARD. Put it in the refrigerator until it's hard enough to cut up into whatever size you want. (I do kudo-size rectangles). Wrap them in waxed paper and freeze for later, or refrigerate. One weekend my husband actually melted chocolate and dunked a bunch of these, to make himself candy bars.......

Those sound really good. I miss granola bars a lot. I had gotten a granola bar mix from Miss Roben's and it just didn't have much flavor. I'll have to try these, sounds good!!

Thanks for the great sounding recipe- with so many options too. Can't wait to get settled into our new house so I can try these. The candy bar idea sounds great or I might just drizzle a little over the top, to entice the little one.

Thank you so much for posting this. I was the one that emailed you for the recipe. This board is new to me, so I am still trying to figure things out. The recipe sounds really good, can't wait to try it out.

Thanks again,

I made this recipe tonight and added a couple of things. I used dried cranberries for the fruit and added crispy brown rice cereal to the corn flakes. These are really good and my celiac daughter loves them!

Thank you for the recipe.
