The Recipes for the Make-It-Yourself Gluten-Free Energy Bars are:
(1) Oat Energy Bars (make sure to get GF oats if you are coeliac or particularly gluten-sensitive)
(2) Chocolate Quinoa Energy Bars (Quinoa pronounced KEEN-wah)

You can find all 3 recipes on one page HERE.

I have to go on that I guess.)
