Granola Bar Bites
A few weeks ago I got the new "Cookies for Everyone" book from the library. In it, I found a couple yummy-looking recipes for granola bars, something those of us with allergies often can no longer buy in the store. So, I tried my hand at one of their recipes, and it's quite tasty.
We love taking homemade granola bars for lunch - they are filling and we know what's in them!!!
Granola Bar Bites - Modified from Cookies for Everyone Cookbook
2 T oil
2 T brown sugar
2 T honey
2 T flax*
2 T water
1 tsp. cinnamon
1 tsp. vanilla
1 3/4 C granola
1 C Enjoy Life Trail Mix (or more granola + dried fruit)
1 ripe banana, sliced (about 1/2 C puree)*
1/2 C rice flour*
2 T tapioca flour*
Cream together oil, brown sugar, honey, flax, water, banana and vanilla.
Mix in flour and cinnamon.
Stir in granola and trail mix.
Then, spoon into a greased 9x9 inch glass baking dish, or into mini-muffin tins.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.
Cool and cut into small bars.
*I used apples in place of the bananas, and used whole wheat flour, just 1/2 C, for the flax, and flours.
