Gluten Free Cranberry granola bars


Here is a recipe I came up with recently. It was my first time cooking with spelt berries. I loved the nutty flavor. I looked at granola bar recipes but couldn't find anything that had exactly what I had in my cabinet. So necessity being the mother of all inventions, I made this. My husband loved it and offered to be the guinea pig for whatever other foods I came up with. Gotta love those husbands! The recipe can also be found here http://recipes.sparkpeople.com/recipe-detail.asp?recipe=2379338. The nutritional values are at the bottom so you can see exactly what you are eating.
