Honey Bunches of Oats Granola Bars

Awhile back I posted on instagram that Cade and I had made granola bars (actually Cade had sat at the table chatting with the owner of Title Boxing Club, our good friend Michael) and boy oh boy did I get a lot of emails about them. Don’t you worry, we did happen to write down the recipe that used the Honey Bunches of Oats Morning Energy Cinnamon Crunch cereal. I don’t know how often I’ll make them, maybe once a month because I could not stay out of those darn cinnamon honey bunches of oats granola bars! They were so tasty!

We are kind of really big fans of granola over here so a granola bar is basically the same thing. In fact, I even broke one up over yogurt for a snack one day and threw in a few plump raspberries for good measure. It was delicious. In fact, I can still taste it! And they were so easy to make which is important during the summer because I don’t have any desire to be trapped in the kitchen when I could be playing with the girls.  Although, it is kind of starting to get really hot and dry here, so outside is about to go away for us unless it’s pool time. I love summer, I love the big, majestic mountains all green and amazing but halfway through the summer everything just turns brown and kind of loses it’s beauty for me. I miss the green of Washington and waking up to see Mt St. Helens out one window and Mt Hood out the other. Pfff, maybe it’s time to move. At least I’ve got these to start the morning off right and now you do too.

Do Granola Bars Contain Gluten?

It is possible to buy gluten-free oats and gluten-free granola.

Pure oats are naturally gluten-free.

However, many granola bars contain whole grain cereals which are not gluten free.

If you follow a gluten free diet, you should shop for granola bars that are marked “gluten-free”.

How Long Will Granola Bars Keep?

Homemade granola and granola bars can be stored in an airtight container for up to 6 months.

Granola and granola bars can also be frozen.
