"I am a semi-retired graphic designer and American ex-pat living on 2.5 acres on a beautiful river in the country. Now that I am semi-retired (and my husband is retired) we have time and no money so we are baking everything from scratch and have started a vegetable garden. I don't bother with cookbooks much now that I've found Recipezaar. Hardly a day goes by that I don't make something from the Zaar and my husband often asks "what are we going to make today". Mid-way through 2009 my husband found out he had a gluten allergy so we've been experimenting and tweaking gluten-free recipes with mostly great results. We go out with a walking group every second week, there is so much beautiful scenery on New Zealand's West Coast."

    Tasty, versatile and easy recipe. I made various iterations and had never made granola bars before. The picture I'll try to attach used Quinoa, dried cranberries, semi-chocolate chips, the sweetened condensed milk and sunflower seeds as per the recipe. For the cup of nuts I used a mixture of mostly ground cashews, slivered almonds, pumpkin seeds and a few more sunflower seeds. I don't like commercial gluten free granola bars, but these were popular with me and my kids (including the one who usually wouldn't eat any kind of berry and is generally pickier). Thanks for this super recipe!
