Chewy Granola bar – gluten, egg, dairy, soy, peanut and tree nut-free


  • 1 tbsp ground flaxseed
  • 3 tbsp of hot water
  • 1 cup gluten-free flour
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ⅓ to ½ cup of granulated sugar (depending on how
    sweet you want it)
  • 1¾ cup of gluten-free rolled oats
  • 1 cup of gluten-free puffed rice cereal
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ½ cup of dairy-free margarine or coconut spread melted
  • ½ cup of allergy-free mini chocolate chips or raisins *optional

Preheat the oven to 180°C

  1. In a small bowl combine flaxseed and hot water. Let it sit for 5 minutes. This will act as the egg.
  2. In a large bowl combine flour, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, oats, sugar and rice cereal. Mix until combined.
  3. Add honey, vanilla, flaxseed mixture, and melted margarine.
  4. Mix until the batter is moist.
  5. Pour into a greased square pan and pat down to make sure it is even.
  6. Bake for 17–20 minutes. It will be slightly soft but will harden upon cooling.
  7. Slice in half and then into ten granola bars.
