Gluten Free Energy BitesOver the course of my five (almost six) years of being gluten free, I have tried almost every granola bar under the sun. In my pre-gluten free days, one might have called me a granola bar connoisseur. To me, they were their own food group. Since being gluten free, I struggled with finding a granola bar that I really enjoyed and did not taste like sawdust. Fortunately, a good friend brought over these magnificent ‘energy bites’ this past summer and it was love at first bite. Let me tell you, they were amazing. My search for a suitable granola bar was now complete.I can say that I make these every Sunday and they are my mid-morning snack during the work-week. I am so excited to share the recipe and hope you enjoy them as much as me!
