Forget packaged granola bars! These easy make-ahead gluten-free breakfast bars are a filling breakfast or grab n’go snack for kids and parents too. They are 100% vegan and made with wholesome ingredients, such as gluten-free puffed rice, organic sweetener, and nut butter.
Crispy puffed rice, creamy almond butter, crunchy coconut flakes, and decadent carob chips are bound together in this delicious, filling breakfast treat or midday snack. These energy-boosting bars are ideal for packed lunches or as a hearty post-workout snack for moms and dads.
These puffed rice breakfast bars cannot be any easier to prepare-simply combine all of the ingredients and let sit until firm. Alternatively, you can allow the mixture to cool in clumps and add it to your kids’ favourite cereal for a decadent treat.
This recipe lends really well to interpretation since the puffed rice and brown rice syrup are a blank canvas for an endless amount of variations. Add any of your favourite ingredients, such as crushed nuts, raisins, dried cherries, chia seeds, and dried fruit to personalize the recipe.
On a side note; puffed rice is also a delicious and healthy treat to introduce to baby. For a baby-led weaning alternative, try these Healthy Puffed Rice Carob Krispies.
