Amy's Granola Bars

My friend Amy helped me with many recipe ideas and conversions when I was required
to start cooking 'gluten free' for my family. I really appreciated her tried and true recipes
that seemed normal, regular, and usual in the strange new world of 'gluten free'. These
are really good and I think you'll enjoy them as well (even if you aren't required to eat

In one bowl measure:

4 1/2 cups oats*
1 cup flour of choice (brown rice flour works well)
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup nut of your choice
1 1/2 tsp gound cinnamon
1 tsp baking soda

In another bowl mix:

6 tablespoon vegan margarine
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup honey or maple syrup
1 tsp vanilla

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Line a 9 inch square pan with foil, extending the foil over the
sides. Grease the foil with oil.

3. Heat the wet ingredients until all melted together and begins to boil.

4. Pour the wet mixture over the dry ingredients and mix until well coated.

5. Transfer to the prepared pan and press evenly with a spatula.

6. Bake about 30 minutes or until the top is golden brown.

7. Cool on rack, using foil, lift out of the pan and place on cutting board.
Cut into 18 bars.

Amy says: this is a fun recipe, these are chewy but by playing around with it the could be
firmer. Also try adding different kinds of dried fruit to it.

Makes 18 bars.

*Use gluten-free oats if necessary
