These gluten free bars are sweet n’ simple and easy to make your own.
All you need is oats, nuts or seeds, some dried fruit, and your favorite nut-butter. The bars pictured use peanut butter to hold them together and have some freeze-dried blueberries inside… AMAZING flavor combo, by the way. Seriously addictive because it reminds me of a PB&J!
You can keep these bars for a few days (if they last that long) in the fridge. If they are at room temp or warmer for a while, they kind of crumble apart because the nut butter softens. I will say, I’ve eaten them crumbled to death too and it’s still pretty good so….
