Let’s face it, we’re all busy but we don’t want to sacrifice our health for our busy lives. These gluten-free granola bars are an excellent way to fulfill this need. They are so versatile and you can add or take away from a recipe like this to fit your current desires! 🙂
These granola bars are great for kids too and they’re an excellent way to give them much needed nutrients to provide them with the proper fuel their bodies need. A great alternative to those sugar, GMO and gluten-filled options filling store shelves today.
A big concern related to the diseases our children (and adults) are developing today is largely related to the overdose of omega-6 they get from food. Without a proper balance of omega-3’s they’re microbiome, the balance of good and bad bacteria in the gut can be greatly compromised resulting in issues with allergies and worse case, auto-immune diseases.
Because the whole process can take a while, I like to make these in large batches and freeze any extras. Notice there’s not a specific type of nut to use so you can use your favorites. I typically use walnuts, pecans, almonds, sunflower seeds and pumpkin seeds. Use all or just some of them. Dates (or a dried fruit of your choice) provide a little sweetness with the raw honey and cinnamon.
Try these delicious granola bars today and rest assured you have a healthy snack on hand!
Shhh, you can add dark chocolate to add an extra flare! Completely optional.
