A Few Shortcuts Weekly Recipe: Homemade Granola Bars

by Pennie on August 9, 2013

My daughter has been trying to move my grandson to a gluten free diet.  He has had a few health problems and she is trying to eliminate gluten as an issue.  The problem with little kids is that once they get a taste for an item, it’s hard to get them to try a different version.  And my grandson loves a particular granola bar. She’s tried swapping them out for a gluten free version, with little success.

So Amanda’s recipe at A Few Shortcuts this week is perfect timing for us.  This Homemade Granola Bars recipe looks wonderful just as it is.  I would definitely eat these, without hesitation.  The ingredients are foods I love, like pecans & oatmeal.  But also important is it can serve as a good base recipe for trying other add-ins that might be more acceptable to my little man.

I hope my daughter makes some soon!


Each week I will highlight one of Amanda’s fabulous recipes. If you don’t have the ingredients or they’re not on sale near you, you could easily print and save the recipes for later use!
