Once you make a batch of these bars and you see how easy they are (and how fast they’re devoured!), I’m pretty sure you’ll never got back to buying granola bars at the grocery store again. Great additions include cranberries, chocolate chips, raisins, chopped walnuts or dried blueberries.
- 1 cup gluten free rolled oats
- 1/3 cup oat flour
- ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
- 2 tablespoons whole flax seeds
- 2 tablespoons ground flax seeds
- 1/8 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup of any combination of add-ins(see suggestions above)
- ¼ cup melted coconut oil
- ¼ cup pure maple syrup
- 2 tablespoons brown rice syrup
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
- Line an 8” square baking dish with parchment paper. Let a bit of excess paper hang over the sides to serve as handles.
- Add the oats, oat flour, cinnamon, nutmeg, whole flax seeds, ground flax seeds, salt, and add-ins.
- In a smaller bowl, whisk together the melted coconut oil, maple syrup, and brown rice syrup.
- Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients. Mix well until all the dry ingredients have been coated.
- Put the mixture in the prepared pan, pat down and smooth out the top with a rubber spatula.
- Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and let cool for about 15 minutes.
- Using parchment paper handles, remove and place onto a cutting board.
- Cut into 12 bars or squares. Fully cool off and store in an airtight container.
