Gluten-Free Recipes: Granola Bars

4 Comments 03 November 2003

This past summer I went camping with some new friends. One of them, Terry, happened to be the gourmande of the group. Upon explaining my diet situation, Terry told me over her fireside read of Food & Wine magazine that she had a flourless granola bar recipe. I made them last Saturday morning, adding a few fun extras that I found stashed in my pantry. Later, as I was cruising along the west side bike path enjoying the shocking summer-like November day, I pulled out my granola bar and silently thanked her. You will too!

4 egg whites OR 2 whole eggs
3/4 tsp. vanilla
1/4 c. sugar (I’ve substituted 1/4 c. maple syrup and it works great)
4 tsp. vegetable oil
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 2/3 cup granola (I used EnerG Brand GF granola)
1 cup raisins
3 Tbsp. rice bran
3 Tbsp. sunflower seeds
4 tsp. sesame seeds

Beat eggs and sugar. Mix in oil, cinnamon, vanilla and remaining ingredients. Each time I play around by adding interesting things…this time I added chopped candied ginger and shredded coconut. I omit the sunflower seeds because I don’t like them. Also, I usually double the recipe since they don’t last long. Bake in a 13×9 inch pan at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

    My sister and I can attest to the deliciousness of the granola bars in question. How wonderful that these scrumptous treats can be available to all, with just a few simple ingredients probably already in your very own kitchen. 🙂
