A yummy and simple gluten and dairy-free granola bar, using simple ingredients such as oats, raisins and nuts – a delicious and healthy snack!

oatmeal-raisin-bar-800x600

In my quest for healthy bars that I can snack on, I found these – they taste very similar to an oatmeal raisin cookie and have a totally different texture to the rest of the bars I currently have on this website.  I was also inspired by my friend Janelle to find a recipe without peanut butter, so she could make it for her family (who for some reason aren’t as totally enamored with peanut butter as I seem to be!).  These are a little flimsy, but really yummy, straight from the freezer.

The original recipe came from Chocolate Covered Katie (website link here) – I love her recipes because they’re simple, using easy to access ingredients.  I mean, how easy is this to make?  Get some oats (gluten-free if needed), raisins, your choice of nuts and wazz (that’s the technical term right there) in your food processor (love my @NinjaKitchen!).  Spread into a pan and freeze for a bit before cutting up.  And they’re yummy.  And they’re healthy.  Wins all around!

Janelle, these are for you!
