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

this is a great recipe, and was happy that i had all the ingredients on hand. thanks for working all the quirks so it turned out perfect for me:) i added 3tlbs natural maple syrup, 1tsp cinnamon, 2tlbs vanilla rice protein powder, 1/2 cup toasted coconut flakes, 1/2 cup toasted almonds, & 1/2 cup dried cranberries. i only added 1/2 cup raw sugar and a little less than 3/4 cup brown rice flour because of the extra ingredients i added. thx again!
