1 cup pecans, chopped
1 cup gluten-free oats
1/3 cup pine nuts
1/4 cup flax seeds
2/3 cup light brown sugar
1/2 cup honey
4 tablespoons salted butter or vegan butter substitute
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 cups puffed brown rice cereal
1/2 cup dried cranberries
*I have been making a batch of these at the beginning of the week and wrapping them individually in plastic wrap. I keep them in the refrigerator so we can pull out as many as we want each morning. Just be sure to let them come to room temp before you eat them because they really harden up in the fridge, but they will soften back to a crispy, chewy granola bar in a few minutes.
