Just the right amount of sweetness, and loaded with crunchy bits and bites!
Prep Time 10 mins
Cook Time 30 mins
Total Time 40 mins
Servings 12

Ingredients
  

  • 1 cup GF cereal such as cornflakes or ‘Chex’
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed dried fruit & nuts
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut
  • 2 Tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 1/2 cup honey
  • 2 Tbsp almond butter or other butter
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 cup GF chocolate chips or chopped chocolate

Instructions
 

  • In a food processor, combine all ingredients, until desired consistency has been reached. If you’d like larger pieces in your bars, pulse mixture a few times, then finish combining with a spatula.
  • Wet hands, then press mixture into a parchment lined 8 x 8 inch pan (the mixture will only cover about two-thirds of the pan).
  • Bake at 350°F for 10-12 minutes, until mixture starts looking a bit golden. Remove from oven, then, using a very sharp knife, gently cut bars into desired size. This is more like just ‘scoring’.
  • Return pan to oven for another 10-12 minutes more, or until they are starting to get more uniformly golden.
  • Remove from oven, reinforcing any of the scoring, as needed.
  • Cool completely before removing; slice around each bar as you lift it from the pan.
