Recipe: Gluten Free Peanut Butter Granola Bars

These bars are a much healthier alternative to any processed granola bar you will find in the grocery store! They can be cut into any size that works well with your plan. This recipe is crunchy but if you were to increase the peanut butter and honey base, it would make them slightly more chewy! Make sure to look for Gluten Free Oats and flour to make these a Gluten Free treat!

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup natural peanut butter
  • 2/3 cup raw honey
  • 1 cup oat flour (I just throw old fashion rolled oats into my processor and process until flour)
  • 2 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 scoop vanilla protein powder (optional)
  • 1 tsp xanthan gum (optional - helps hold the ingredients together)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/3 cup flaxseed meal
  • 3/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Instructions

Mix Honey and Peanut butter until well blended.  Stir in all of the remaining ingredients and blend well. Press mixture into a prepared 8x11.5" pan and bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes or until barely browned. Cut into bars and store in an airtight container or individually wrapped to grab on the go. I cut my pan into 18 bars, which were the exact same size as the bars I use to buy in the store.
