Allergy Free Chocolate Granola Bars

I have been meaning to make granola bars for forever!  But so many recipes contain so many things we can't have and I just didn't have the will power to try to change all the ingredients or create my own recipe.  I found this recipe at French Press and with some slight tweaking, I made it allergy free for Bee. 

These are so simple to make that Curly actually made them.  She loves working in the kitchen with me and I've been working to find some simpler recipes that she can make on her own.  

The granola bars were a huge hit and are the perfect thing when I'm in need of a chocolate fix......which with 5 small kids, I'm in need of about every day!

Chocolate Granola Bars
1 1/2 cup GF rolled oats
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 cup brown sugar
1/4 cup honey
2 T Earth Balance Soy Free
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup Enjoy Life chocolate chips

Whisk oats, rice cereal, cocoa powder, and salt together in large bowl.
Melt the brown sugar, honey, and Earth Balance together in small saucepan until just starting to bubble.
Stir in the vanilla and remove from heat.
Pour over dry ingredients.
Stir in chocolate chips.
Press into a greased jelly roll pan.
Store in fridge.

I'm going to be doing some granola bar experimentation in the upcoming weeks.  I need one with pea butter, one with marshmallows, one with raisins, and one with cinnamon and chocolate chips!

raw food recipes Honey has the ability to absorb moisture directly from the air, a phenomenon called hygroscopy. The amount of water the honey will absorb is dependent on the relative humidity of the air.
