Chewy Granola Bars Vegan, Gluten Free, Egg Free, Dairy Free

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by The Silly Goose

I have modified Chewy Granola Bars to fit into our allergen free diet. Everyone loves these!! These are free of milk, egg, gluten, corn, soy and so ON!! Sorry about missing changing the directions. I have been tweaking the recipe. Everything should be correct now. You WILL have to read labels to be sure that the items you buy are allergen free. This recipe is quite forgiving but using regular rice flour helps them to stick together.

These are great! They are better than cookies. I used puffed rice and puffed millet instead of crispy rice ceral (hard to find economical gluten free brand) and added buckwheat goats, flax seed and seasame seeds for a little more crunch
