Homemade Gluten Free Trail Bars
(Recipe from Canyon Ranch)
⅓ cup quinoa flakes (note that you can finely chop up gluten-free instant oats in a food processor and use these as a substitute for the quinoa flakes)
1⅔ cups puffed millet
1⅔ cups puffed rice
¼ cup pumpkin seeds
¾ cup sunflower seeds
¾ cup chopped walnuts
1 cup dried cherries
1 cup almond butter
1 cup honey
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Mix all ingredients except honey and almond butter in a large bowl. On low heat, melt almond butter and honey until mixture bubbles. Remove from heat and pour over the dry ingredients. Press onto a large baking sheet and let cool completely – cut into bars once it hardens. Makes about 40 servings.
My kids and hubby loved these bars! I really like the fact that you can customize the nuts and fruit to what your family prefers. Hope you and your family enjoy this healthy gluten-free snack too!
