Seriously, granola bars are my favorite snack of all time. I do dream about them! But once going gluten/corn/soy/cashew free it was impossible to find one to buy that was any good, even if I wanted to pay an arm and a leg for one.
Enter my favorite snack cookbook of all time!
I have found a quick and easy tweak that my family loves for granola bars in the second edition! Of course, one of my add-ins is chocolate chips. 🙂
My tweak uses only gluten free oats, sunflower seeds (ground up), almonds (ground up) and shredded coconut for the dry ingredients. I reduced the butter to only one stick, and the sugar by at least 1/2. We didn’t miss it at all! Unfortunately I don’t have a picture of them all cut up (sometimes I individually wrap them for easy of grabbing on the run). We ate them all before I got to it. 🙂
