Homemade Gluten-Free Crispy Oat & Honey Bars ~ they will be a hit I’m sure of it!

This quick recipe is a treasure. I have yet to meet someone who doesn’t like these bars. Not to mention, they taste a lot like the ones you can purchase.

Of course, you could change things up and add different flavored chips, mix in some peanut butter or other nut butter, or mix in a little coconut. Have fun with the options!

If you are following weight watchers… points add up to 50 for the whole recipe. I divided the recipe in two ways. First I made these 1/4″ thick on a 9″x13″ shallow baking pan and cut them into 28 servings. These bars have 2 points each.

This way you get a little something sweet without adding up a lot of points or calories.

The second way I made them was to press them into a smaller baking sheet so they were 1/2″ thick and cut them into 14 servings at 4 points each. I prefer them this way…you get a bigger mouthful.    : )

Gluten-Free Crispy Oat & Honey Bars                   14 or more servings

Prepare a baking sheet with non-stick cooking spray
1/4 cup butter (or non-dairy butter substitute)
1/4 cup honey, agave for vegan.
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 cups quick-cooking oats (not rolled oats) gluten-free if needed
1 cup of gluten-free crispy rice cereal.
1/2 tsp vanilla
2 Tbsp mini chocolate chips (I used Enjoy Life gluten and dairy-free).
In a medium-size mixing bowl add oats and rice cereal, mix.
In a small saucepan add butter, honey and brown sugar. Mix as it comes to a soft boil.

Reduce heat and let cook for 2 minutes stirring the whole time.

Remove from heat and add vanilla, mix.
Pour over oat mixture and mix well.
Press onto a prepared 9″x13″ shallow baking sheet or smaller.
Sprinkle chocolate chips over bars and gently press them in.
Let cool 1-2 hours.

Store bars in an airtight container.

Note – of course gluten-free products are not necessary if not needed.
