    Trail Mix Bars - Comfy Belly

    I’ve seen a lot of Kind bar replica recipes lately, which kicked me into working on a replacement for my old granola bar recipe, which was desperately in need of an update.

    I’ve also revisited the ratio and ingredients for two other snack bars from way back, using toasted brown rice and millet. My older son and I are still grain-free, but I know some of you do use gluten-free grains like rice, millet and quinoa, so I’m happy to say that my two brown rice-based bars are fine-tuned for success. Check them out if you’re into puffed brown rice and millet:

    I love ratios, especially reliable ratios, and this one works well. It’s three cups of goodies, 1/2 cup of honey or maple syrup, 1/4 cup of water and some salt. Feel free to add your own touch to this ratio—maybe a dash of vanilla extract.

    1. What a great base recipe, I like your idea for a tropical version!

    2. Thanks for working out such a great ratio! Can’t wait to try a version of this – it’s almost impossible to find the perfect trail mix bar in the stores.

      I had to leave the kitchen and distract myself on the Interwebs in order to allow these to cool properly – just licking the mixing spoon was enough to know these are going to be amazing and I would have to restrain myself from scoffing the lot! Thanks for the recipe & pretty pictures 🙂

      If you use maple syrup in place of the honey – do you still boil to caramelize it?

      Thx

      If I use coconut nectar in place of the honey, do I still follow the same instructions?

      Thanks
