I was surfing around the other day and came across this website - The Joyful Abode, and a recipe for grain-free granola bars that are Paleo/Primal friendly. I made them using our friend Kelly McKaig's honey and oh yeah, they are good!
Here's the recipe stolen directly from the Joyful Abode:
Grain-Free Gluten-Free Dairy-Free Granola Bar RecipeYou will need:
Roughly chop 1 cup of the nuts and seeds. Place in a bowl.
- 2.5 cups assorted nuts and seeds
- 1 cup dried fruit
- 2 cups shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup coconut oil
- 1/2 cup honey
- splash of vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- generous sprinkle of cinnamon
- some more cinnamon
Use your food processor to pulse the other 1.5 cups of nuts and seeds into a finer “chop.” Add to the bowl.
Add your fruit.
Stir in the dried coconut.
In a saucepan over medium-low heat, combine oil, honey, vanilla, salt, and cinnamon. Cook until the mixture bubbles, then pour over the fruit/nut mixture.
Stir to combine completely.
Press your mixture into a parchment-lined pan of some sort. Press HARD.
Cool 2-3 hours, then remove from the pan and cut into bars.
The only thing I noticed is that they get a bit soft if you don't keep them refrigerated.
