Gluten, dairy free breakfast bars

Although there are many gluten and dairy free options in the store (many more than when we began a gluten and dairy free lifestyle) I prefer to make this recipe to limit the number of additives. 

This easy recipe uses simple ingredients and makes for a quick weekday breakfast or after school snack.


1/2 c honey
1/2 c maple almond butter
1/3 c organic sugar
3 c gluten free crisp rice cereal (we like Erewhon’s)
1/3 c raisins
2 TBSP sunflower seeds (optional)
1 TBSP ground flax see


Maple almond butter: sunflower seed butter, cashew butter, peanut butter, tahini or any other nut butter. I like to use what has the highest protein content.

Raisins: Craisins, chocolate chips (enjoy life gluten, dairy free), any kind of dried fruit.


Grease a 9 x 13 baking pan, set aside.  (I like Spectrum shortening, it doesn’t have TBHQ).

In a large saucepan heat honey, almond butter and sugar to boil.  Stir on medium heat for 2-3 minutes.

Turn off heat and add all other ingredients.  Stir until well combined and the crisp rice is evenly coated.

Pour mixture into greased pan and use a spatula to press down evenly. (I spray the spatula with Spectrum non-stick cooking spray first)

Let cool, cut into squares and serve! Put into an airtight container, will last for 7 to 10 days.
