Gluten Free Peanut Butter & Millet Granola Bars

By Heartbeet Kitchen

Serving Size: 12

  • 1 ½ cup puffed millet or brown rice cereal
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • ¼ cup almonds or cashews, chopped
  • ¼ cup dried currents or raisins
  • ⅓ cup peanut butter melted (used Buddy's Cinnamon Raisin Peanut Butter) -- for correct measurement, spoon out some peanut butter, melt for 15 to 20 seconds in the microwave, then measure out 1/3 cup
  • ⅓ cup brown rice syrup
  • ¼ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Make a sling with parchment paper and line an 8×8 inch pan with it, then spray bottom and sides of pan with nonstick spray. In a large bowl stir together millet, muesli, cinnamon, and currants. In a small bowl stir together brown rice syrup and peanut butter. Microwave for 10 seconds, stir, then microwave for another 10 seconds. Stir in vanilla and pour over dry ingredients.
  2. Mix thoroughly so all ingredients are coated. I use my hands to help this process. Press firmly into pan using the back of a spatula. (You want to make sure you pack them firmly so they stay together when finished.) Bake for 6 minutes. Remove from oven, press down on top once more with spatula and set pan on wire rack to cool completely.
