More and more these days I’m finding that people are needing to eat gluten free. While neither my husband or I have to eat gluten free we both suffer from joint pain. Eating gluten free has been linked to relief from joint pain so we’ve been trying to switch over to gluten free when we can.
One thing that made our switch easy is gluten free cereal. We’ve been eating a lot of gluten free cereal from Attune Foods. I’ve also found that I can bake with these cereals and have been making some treats for us. One of my favorite things I’ve made so far are these fruit and nut granola bars.
Granola bars are great to have around the house because we eat them for breakfast or a snack on the go and they are fairly healthy. Packed with dried fruits, nuts, flax seeds, and gluten free cereal, they give me plenty of energy before aerobics or a long day at work. They are sweet, easy to handle, and taste great. I wouldn’t have even known they were gluten free if I hadn’t made them myself!
1 ½ c. Erewhon gluten free Strawberry Crisp Cereal (or gluten free raisin bran)
¼ c. flax seed
