Granola bar recipe

Granola BarsSince we seem to be stockpiling food allergies around here lately, I have been making granola bars from scratch. They are based off of this recipe, but I have added some different combinations just to switch up our weekly granola bars. Here are some of my favorite combinations…

Before I get started, these bars do have to be refrigerated to hold together. You let them set for two hours after prepping and then I cut them and individually wrap them in a ziploc and they hold together pretty well in B’s lunchbag with an ice pack. If you want them to stay together without being refrigerated you’ll have to use peanut butter that has soy in it.

If you can’t eat soy, sunflower, almonds, or hazlenuts…

Use the original recipe (1 cup of natural peanut butter, 2/3 cup honey, 1/2 cup coconut oil heated on low and mixed) and then add 2 cups of oats and 2 cups of the following:

Granola mixI do 1 cup of the triple berry granola, and then 1 cup of equal mix dried cherries, mango, and golden raisins (I chop up the fruit quite a bit in the food processor).

Then, press into an 8×8 pan that is lined on the bottom with parchment paper. Top with a mix of mini chocolate chips and white chocolate chips (if you want it without soy lechtin use a dark chocolate chip variety that doesn’t contain soy…nestle makes them!).

If you can’t eat soy and gluten:

Use the original recipe (1 cup of natural peanut butter, 2/3 cup honey, 1/2 cup coconut oil heated on low and mixed) and then add 2 cups of gluten free oats and 2 cups of the following:

Gluten FreeKind blueberry granola is soy free, gluten free, and sunflower free. I do one cup of the granola and then 1 cup of equal mix dried cherries and golden raisins (I chop up the fruit quite a bit in the food processor). Then, press into an 8×8 pan that is lined on the bottom with parchment paper. Top with a mix of mini chocolate chips and white chocolate chips (if you want it without soy lechtin use a dark chocolate chip variety that doesn’t contain soy…nestle makes them!).

And of course if you do have any sort of allergy always check the packages and with your doctor before you test these out!
