Easy Granola Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 881
Fantastic bars that have a lot of flexibility. You can adapt the recipe to your liking. Great for hikes, long road trips and camping as they store well and keep fairly long - unless you eat them all! Use any combination of chocolate chips, dried fruit, coconut, pecans, almond slices, or any other tidbits you'd like in a granola bar.

Gluten-Free Granola Bars

Rating: 4.5 stars 30
These are versatile chewy granola bars. You can add or omit as your allergies dictate. I enjoy raisins and sesame seeds, with less chocolate chips. These are not overly sweet. I buy roasted almonds with no salt and chop them in the food processor. My cashews are usually roasted and salted. It can be made with raw nuts. You could use almond or soy butter if allergic to peanuts.

Yogurt Bark

Rating: 4 stars 23
Yogurt bark is the healthiest treat around! Spread your favorite yogurt on a tray, top with your favorite fruits, dark chocolate bits, nuts, seeds, and more - then freeze. That's it! Children love this as a sweet snack, but it's great for the whole family.

Gluten-Free Fried Cheese Curds

Rating: 5 stars 6
Crispy, crunchy, gluten-free goodness! Serve these gluten-free cheese curds with ranch or marinara for dipping. Yum!

Anytime Almonds

Rating: 4 stars 25
These savory almonds are easy to make and take almost no time at all. They are delicious while still warm, but taste just as good cold. Goes well with Kalamata olives and feta cheese as a small appetizer tray. If you are using raw almonds, increase the baking time.

These homemade Pop-Tarts® include all the flavor of the original, but don't contain any of the stuff you can't pronounce on the back of the box! They freeze well and can be filled with anything. Try pumpkin butter, cinnamon sugar, Nutella®, or peanut butter and jelly! Homemade fruit preserves are delicious as well! Top with confectioners' sugar.
