Gluten Free Granola Bars

I have wanted to try some granola bars for a while.  I have been home sick the last few days and bored outof my mind, so of course - baked :-)   These are the ones I chose to make (as had stuff on hand).  I found a recipe that sounded close to what I wanted and adapted it.  The original recipe is found here ' granola recipe.

2 cups GF Oats
1 cup Sliced Almonds

Mix the 2 together and spread out on cookie sheet - Bake 8-10 minutes until toasted a bit (stir several times in this time period)

Mix in a bowl while the above is toasting
1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
1/2 cup Dried Cherries
Handful each of Sunflower and Pumpkin Seeds
1/2 cup Flaxseed Flour
1/4 tsp Salt
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 cup Puffed Amaranth

Add the Oats/Almonds to this mixture and then add immediately (so that it is still warm)
2/3 cup Coriander Honey
1 tsp Vanilla Extract

Mix it all very well then press into a 9x14 cake pan and bake for 25 min at 180°C

Let Cool and then Cut into 24 bars
