Gluten Free Honey-Peanut Butter Bars

Yep, I’m doing pretty good with the no gluten, no dairy diet.  I have discovered that I don’t care for Hemp Milk, but Coconut and Almond is good . . . My dad even attempted to make me gluten free bread yesterday which was really nice of him. The loaves were a bit flat, but the taste was good. Add a bit of jelly and who cares how little the slice is!

Here’s a quick and easy no-bake recipe for you and it’s good even if you aren’t eating gluten free.  I got it from the Chex website – did you know Chex is gluten free. Yeah, I even tried making meatloaf with it instead of using crackers or oatmeal to hold the meat together. Not too bad, but more experimentation is required before I can give you the recipe. 🙂

6 cups Honey Nut Chex® cereal
1/2 cup honey-roasted peanuts
1/2 cup honey or light corn syrup

1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
1/4 cup dark chocolate chips

Butter 9- or 8-inch square pan. In large bowl, mix cereal and peanuts; set aside.

In 3-quart saucepan, heat honey and sugar just to boiling over medium heat, stirring constantly. Remove from heat; stir in peanut butter until smooth. Pour over cereal mixture in bowl; stir gently until evenly coated. Press firmly in pan. Cool 15 minutes.

In small microwavable bowl, microwave chocolate chips uncovered on High 30 to 60 seconds, stirring every 15 seconds, until melted and smooth. Drizzle over top of bars. Let stand at room temperature at least 30 minutes until chocolate is set. For bars, cut into 4 rows by 6 rows. Store loosely covered at room temperature.
