This recipe post doubles as an entry for the Bob’s Red Milla Gluten Free Muesli Recipe Contest. When my pals at Bob’s Red Mill asked if I’d like to enter, I knew I wanted to try making a gluten free snack bar. I work with many clients from students to adults who are following a gluten free diet, and they’re always looking for simple, nutritious, gluten free recipes to make at home, since so many prepared, processed gluten free products can be so expensive, and oftentimes not even that healthy!
I think these bars will be a huge hit with any snack lover, whether or not you follow a gluten free diet:
3 cups Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Muesli
1 cup crushed gluten free whole grain cereal, like Erewhon Buckwheat & Hemp
1.5 cups creamy peanut butter
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup Bob’s Red Mill dried tart cherries
1/3 cup Bob’s Red Mill gluten free all purpose flour
3/4 cup honey
Preheat oven to 350.
Grease a 9×13 baking pan and line with parchment paper.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl, and mix to combine. Spread evenly in the baking pan, and press down so mixture is firm.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool slightly before cutting into 24 bars.
These bars are oh-so-peanut-buttery and slightly chewy with little bits of nuts, oats and tart cherries in each bite. They make a perfect between-meal snack, breakfast paired with a piece of fruit, or even yogurt topper if you crumble the bar on top of a bowl of Greek yogurt. And the best part is they only require one big mixing bowl to make, so even doing dishes after is a snap!
To give you the chance to make these bars at home, I’m giving one reader a case of Bob’s Red Mill gluten free muesli, which is great not only in these bars, but also eaten cold or hot as a breakfast cereal.

Sweet potatoes and black beans are a match made in heaven. One of my favorite recipes of all time is this Sweet Potato and Black Bean Chili, and over the summer, I became addicted to a basic lunch of a baked sweet potato topped with Trader Joe’s black bean spread. So when I had a
Do you assign colors to months? I do. January is white (snow!), February is pink (obviously), April is pastel, and March is green, not just because of St. Patrick’s day, but because SPRING is coming!!! This month’s Recipe ReDux theme is to use any fresh green herb in a nontraditional way. I knew just the
One of my favorite veggie blogs is Oh My Veggies. It seems like everything Kiersten posts appeals to me and I’m constantly flagging her recipes. It could also be that she takes the most gorgeous food photography, so she could make burnt toast look good, but still. This recipe for Caramelized Onion and Eggplant Puff
When I was little, one of my favorite foods was my mom’s meatloaf. I liked it even better the second day, when I’d have a packed lunch of meatloaf sandwich with ketchup on white bread. The ketchup made the white bread practically disintegrate, and I still remember the smell of meatloaf sitting in my locker
Last week I celebrated my 31st birthday. With Funk out for the evening taking a midterm, I stayed home celebrating a low-key birthday with my friend Alex. I had a few people tell me that day, “I hope you’re not cooking on your birthday!” but to be honest, I was totally happy to cook. My
After not wanting to cook anything last week, I was determined to get some menu planning done before grocery shopping this week. I pinned a couple recipes from my go-to source, Eating Well, including this recipe for Crab Cake Burgers. Ever since Funk and I started eating eggs again, it’s been a cinch to whip
Lately I have not been in the mood to cook. At all. Over the weekend we made quesadillas (if you can call it that) in the microwave. And then we ordered delivery from a restaurant that is no more than a quarter mile away from our apartment. We’ve lived in this neighborhood for five years
This 1-skillet meal could not be any easier. Three main ingredients. Ready? Go: 1 bag shredded Brussels sprouts 1 block extra firm tofu, excess moisture squeezed out and cut into cubes 1 bag frozen, shredded hash browns Oil, salt and pepper to taste Slivered almonds optional Prepare crispy tofu using this method. Set tofu aside
This is another example of me getting recipe inspiration, and then going in a totally different direction. I subscribe to a handful of recipe emails, tons of food blogs, and check out Pinterest for meal ideas. But most of the time when I see a recipe, I tweak it out of necessity (like I don’t
