My friend Jenn Panella is lactose intolerant and wanted to try making her own granola bars at home but needed a recipe that fit her diet restrictions. These are the yummy bars she made combining my recipe and her recipe. This is a good lesson; we all have different needs when eating and we need to work together to come up with healthy options that work! Yay Jenn for thinking outside of the box!

Cookbook: Go Dairy Free by Alisa Marie Fleming.


  • 3 cups crispy rice cereal
  • 2 1/4 cups Quick-Cooking Oats
  • 1/2 c sliced almonds
  • 1/2 c unsweetened shredded coconut
  • 2/3 c semi-sweet chocolate chips
  • 1/2 c agave nectar
  • 1/4 c light brown sugar
  • 1 c creamy almond butter or peanut butter ( I used fresh almond butter, so it had no sugar or salt)
  • 1 1/2 t vanilla extract
  • 1/2 t salt (omit if using salted nut butter)


  1. Grease 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. Combine the cereal, oats, almonds, and coconut in a large bowl, and set aside.
  3. In a small saucepan, bring the agave nectar and brown sugar just to a boil over medium heat. Immediately remove from the heat and stir in the nut butter, vanilla, and salt.
  4. Gently stir the hot gooey mixture into your awaiting cereal mix until it is well incorporated.
  5. Let it sit and cool for about 2 minutes.
  6. Stir in the chocolate chips.
  7. Press the mixture firmly into your prepared dish.
  8. Using a sheet of wax paper or a sandwich baggie around your hand while pressing will help to avoid sticking issues.
  9. Freeze the bars for 30 minutes.
  10. Remove the granola from the freezer and cut into bars.
  11. Store them in the refrigerator or freezer.
