Calling All Cooks Need Help

Recommended Posts

I am looking for a cereal-fiber bar, something I can grab and go. I have tried just about everthing out there, Larabars, Glutino, Enjoy Life, you name it I think I have tried it. I have even tried the meal replacement bars but that is not what I am looking for too many calories. Most of the bars I have tried I really don't like the taste of either or the texture. (I am a texture person).

So here is what I am looking for, maybe something with gluten free ricekripes and or oats or any kind of gluten free kind of ceral, I am dairy free but know how to sub for it. Looking for something high in fiber, dried fruit, chocolate chips, peanut butter is fine, nuts sometimes. honey, brown sugar, whatever to sweeten works for me. Low in calories, high protien, easy to make. I suffer from low blood sugar so something that would help me if I am crashing. Something that I can always have in my purse. Am I asking too much. :lol:

So there it is if anybody can help I would surely appreciate it.

Thanks bunches.

Chrissy :)

Soy Joy also has some great bars. Not quite sure of the fiber content, but they taste really good and the texture is awesome. Something like a biscotti.

Here is a chewy granola bar recipe you may like. These are homemade but easy and really good:

1 cup brown sugar(lightly packed)

2/3 cup peanut butter

1/2 cup light corn syrup

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 cups oatmeal

1/2 cup coconut (optional)

1/2 cup sunflower seeds

1/2 cup raisins

2 tablespoons sesame seeds

1 cup chocolate chips(optional)

Add any dried fruit you like or chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9x13 pan. In large bowl combine sugar, peanut butter, corn syrup, margarine & vanilla, mixing well. Add all remaining ingredients. Press evenly in pan. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until light golden brown. Allow to cool for 1 hour.

I bake these,let them cool, then cut into bars and wrap individually. They keep well & taste great. Hope this helps!
