GF Homemade Granola

My sister Kim made this when we went over to their place on a Sunday night. She called ahead of time asking for rice chex (in place of the rice krispies), GF flour, and GF oats. Here is the recipe.. We made Acai bowls with them, which area always a treat. And it's so nice when family and friends can accomodate you- they start to notice that it's really easy to cook GF or just substitute different ingredients.

Granola Bars

1/2c butter
1/3c brown sugar
1/3c honey (I do half honey & half molasses)
1/4c (she used Namaste)flour
1/2t vanilla
1/4t cinnamon
2c rice chex cereal- smash up
2c GF oats
1c dried fruits (and/or cho chips,butterscotch chips, etc – I used dried
apricots & craisins)
1/2c chopped nuts

Heat oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 9x13 pan with nonstick cooking spray &
set aside.

Melt butter in a large pot over low heat. When melted whisk in sugar,
honey, flour, vanilla & cinnamon. Remove from heat and add the remaining
ingredients. Mix well.

Transfer the mixture into the baking pan. Using a sheet of wax paper & flat
hand press the granola firmly & evenly into the bottom of the pan.

Bake for 20 min until golden brown. Allow the granola to cool for 1 hour
in the pan, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely before cutting into
bars (or smash). Makes 16 to 24 bars.
