High-protein Gluten-Free Granola made with simple ingredients. This go-to recipe can be made in a snap!
2 tbsp natural peanut butter (The drippy kind)
2 tbsp melted vegan butter of choice ( I used the Earth Balance brand)
Heaping 1/4 cup honey
1 tsp. vanilla extract
2 cups Certified Gluten-Free rolled oats
2 scoops of collagen (2 scoops = 2 servings for the collagen peptides I used)
3/4 cup chopped honey-roasted peanuts
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. sea salt
1/3 cup chocolate chips
Preheat the oven to 350 F and spray a large baking sheet with non-stick spray. You can also use parchment paper.
Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl, except for the chocolate chips. Mix everything well so that the granola is evenly coated in the honey and that there are no dry areas.
Transfer the granola to the large baking sheet and spread it out into an even layer. A trick that works for me is hitting the baking sheet on the counter a few times. It makes the granola spread easier across the baking sheet.
Bake for 25-30 minutes, flipping the granola halfway through. When the granola is done baking it should appear golden brown
Let the granola cool for at least 45 minutes.
Break the granola into clumps once cooled.
Sprinkle the chocolate chips into the granola.
Store in an air-tight container at room temp for about 1 week.

It’s So Simple
It’s mind bottling to me how I haven’t made these gluten free granola bars sooner. The effort is minimal and best of all, it’s cheaper than your typical gluten free granola bars and is sweetened only with honey
Here’s What You Need To Make These Healthy Granola Bars
Gluten free oats
Dairy free chocolate chips
You will be putting all the ingredients except for the peanut butter and honey into one large bowl and combining the ingredients.
The only effort involved in this recipe is mixing the honey and peanut butter together in a small pot over low-medium heat.
After that, you’ll let the pot of honey and peanut butter cool for 5-8 minutes. You don’t want to melt the chocolate in the chocolate chips so the cool time is essential.
Once everything is combined, simply press the mixture into an 8×8 pan spread evenly using your hands or the back of a glass.
I find using a glass makes evening the mixture much easier than a spatula or your hands.
After pressing the mixture into the pan sprinkle a little extra sea salt and chocolate chips over the top and put in the freezer for 30-45 minutes.
After that time, take it out of the freezer and let it sit for 5 minutes before cutting evenly into 10 bars.
