These grain free baked granola bars stick together well and fit the bill if you cannot tolerate eggs!
Grain free baking requires a lot of eggs.
I love eggs, but sometimes I just want to have something baked that is egg free. This recipe is a great snack for grabbing on-the-go as it is full of good proteins and fats.
Even without the eggs, this granola bar holds together surprisingly well. The gelatin is a good egg replacer and is also full of healthy amino acids that nourish our joints. I like to get as much gelatin in my diet as I can via bone broths, soups and treats made with gelatin.
The bar has a nice crunchy texture that is so satisfying and it also gets flavor from the salt, so use a good sea salt.
I like to balance the nuts with coconut flakes which provide good amounts of coconut oil. The use of raisins reduces the need for sweetener other than just a little honey, which is optional. When spread over the 12 bars, this does not amount to much at all but you can omit the honey if you like.
I encourage you to taste the batter before baking to make sure it is sweet enough or not.Print
