Making Gluten Free Cereal Bars

18 03 2010

My 7 year old son will be guest blogging for me today.  He is also on a gluten free diet, so as part of his homework I invited him to write a blog about making gluten free cereal bars.

Step one: Find a recipe.   We used this one.

Step two:  Get out your favorite gluten free cereal and get out any kinds of seeds (or nuts), peanut or almond butter and other things that you would like. (we used Koala Crisp, almond butter, Agave nectar, mini chocolate chips, pumpkin seeds, peanuts and sunflower seeds)

Step Three:  Measure the ingredients.  Get out your food processor to grind up the nuts and seeds (just a little bit.)

Step Four:  Get out your favorite saucepan and put in the Agave nectar and almond or peanut butter.  

Once it starts to melt put in the salt and vanilla.

Step Five:  Once it’s all melted pour the hot mixture into a mixing bowl and add your nuts and cereal and mix it all up.  (we let it cool a little and added the chocolate chips – mmmmm!)

Step Six:  Pour it in a pan (lined with parchment paper) and flatten it out so it looks like this:


Step Seven:  Put it in the fridge to cool and if it’s a nice day – Go Outside!!

Step Eight:  Cut them up and eat!!  We both give them a double thumbs up!!
