|Incredible! I started with the granola bar recipe that I have been using for several years now and changed it in several ways to make it gluten free.|
I eliminated the oats and doubled the gluten-free Rice Krispie cereal. So, instead of 1 1/2 Cup Oats, and 1 1/2 Cup Rice Krispies ... I use 3 Cups Rice Krispies.
I also added flax seed, xanthan gum, and an extra egg. I use Gluten-Free All Purpose Flour instead of wheat flour.
They turned out GREAT! I actually think they are better than my other Gluten-FULL recipe.
Here is the recipe:
You will need 2 bowls.
In the first bowl combine:
1 Cup brown sugar
2 Tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 stick of butter
1/2 Cup natural peanut butter (gluten free)
In the 2nd bowl combine:
3 Cups Gluten-Free Rice Krispies
1 1/3 Cup All Purpose Gluten Free Flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 scant teaspoon of xanthan gum
1/2 Cup ground almonds (not flour)
1/4 Cup plus 1/8 Cup of ground flax seed
1/2 teaspoon of soda
Mix wet ingredients well, then add dry ingredients and mix well.
Once mixed together add:
1 Cup of Unsweetened Coconut
1 Cup of chocolate chips
Press into a well greased 11X13 baking pan. (make sure you press the mixture down well!)
Bake at 350 degrees for 20-22 minutes.
Cut into bars while still warm.
I store mine in the refrigerator. I find that they stay together better when they are cold. Rich also prefers them cold.

|Martin is taking band - learning the trumpet - 2 days each week. (an hour each time)|
|Eye appointments for the 2 middle boys. It's that time of year to check the eyes and pick out new glasses. My boys LOVE going to see Dr. Bailey! They also love that they get to pick out new glasses!|

|Aaron had an AMAZING first baseball game! Here doesn't have nearly as much experience as most of the boys on the field ... so he's figuring things out as he goes along. He's having such a great time with it and is loving every minute of it!|
|I may not love baseball ... but I sure do LOVE how much my Aaron loves it!|
|I am so excited that Aaron has the opportunity to play baseball this fall. He has already improved in his skill and ability a lot since he started, and I am looking forward to seeing him improve even more as the season progresses!|

|Martin has finally grown into the air rifle we got him a couple years ago. He is LOVING target practice!|
|He has been wanting to get his air rifle back out for a long time now ... we finally pulled it out and he can practice completely unassisted now. He'll be shootin' deer before we know it!|

|Rosalie wore her hair crazy. I put her hair up in pony tails and braids.|
|Jonathan wore a tank hat. We made a tank out of a box, an old can, construction paper, and a straw. We had a lot of fun making it ... and he had even more fun wearing it. He put his stuffed frog in the can to ride in the tank!|
|Martin used cardboard and construction paper to make his hat. I think he called himself the snake ninja man. He put a couple of stuffed snakes in his hat. He did really well making his hat without help!|
