AND, YES!!! They are Gluten Free! I wanted a grab & go treat for busy mornings that was softer than a granola bar yet denser than bread. I couldn’t find one that I loved anywhere so I crafted my own. First attempt. Nailed it! (At least I think so anyway)

  • 2 cups quick cook oats – certified gluten free
  • 1 cup gluten free multi purpose flour
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chips
  • 1/2 cups walnuts, chopped small
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon or dessert spice
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon mineral salt
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 3 tablespoons crunchy peanut butter
  • 1 cup pureed apple
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract – or scrape seeds from 1 bean
  • 2 large bananas, smashed
  • dab of butter for pans
  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Lightly coat two bread pans with real butter.
  3. In a medium bowl, stir together the oats, gluten free flour, chocolate chips, walnuts, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt. In a separate large bowl, combine the milk, apple puree, banana puree, egg, maple syrup, peanut butter, and vanilla.
  4. Pour the dry ingredients into the wet mixture and stir to combine. The batter will stiff but moist.
  5. Spread batter into the prepared baking pan.
  6. Bake for 30 minutes or until thickened and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Cool, cut into bars, and serve.

Makes 10 bars or 20 squares for tiny hands.
