Classic Glo Bar
When Angela Liddon, author of The Oh She Glows Cookbook, made these bars and posted them on social media nearly ten years ago, they were an instant viral recipe sensation. She found herself making 500 bars a week in her home kitchen to sell and has, more recently, shared the recipe in her cookbook as a thank you to her followers. “Thank you, Angela Lidden, for a superior bar recipe.” These are my new homemade go-to bar for travel & camping, and I am grateful.
Classic Glo Bar Recipe
1 1/2 cups oats
1 1/4 crisp rice cereal (make sure it is “crisp”)
1/4 cup hemp seeds
1/4 cup shredded coconut
1/4 cup seeds (sunflower, pepita)
2 tablespoons chia seeds
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup brown rice syrup
1/4 cup nut butter (peanut, cashew, sunflower seed, almond)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 cup mini chocolate chips (optional)
Line a square cake pan with parchment paper hanging over the edge.
In a large bowl, combine the oats, crisp rice cereal, hemp seeds, sunflower seeds, coconut, sesame seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon, and salt.
In a saucepan, stir together the brown rice syrup and nut butter. Cook over medium heat until the mixture heats, softens, & bubbles.
Remove from heat and add vanilla.
Pour the warm mixture over the dry mixture in the bowl and mix well. Fold the chocolate chips in if you are adding them.
Transfer to the parchment paper in the pan and spread around, pressing in all corners.
Place pan in freezer to let it set for 10 minutes. Remove and cut into bars with a pizza slicer, wrap indivually in wax paper and return to freezer to fully set and store.
