How to Make a Granola Bar Sandwich With Udi's Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread

Updated on September 9, 2014

Udi's Gluten Free Whole Grain Bread falls in the top 3 on my list of favorite wheat-free breads.  There are 2 other brands that I like better (Three Bakers and Canyon Bakehouse), but since my kids prefer Udi's, I figured I'd go ahead and review it. 

If you have little ones at home, I recommend trying Udi's bread.  The flavor is fairly mild, so you can use this bread for everything from grilled cheese to French toast.  I personally prefer to eat things with more of a kick, but this bread doesn't taste bad.  If you are looking for a basic gluten-free bakery product, this is exactly what you want. 

When I decided to go gluten-free, Udi's was the first brand that I tried.  It's easy to find it in stores out here, and the breads are reasonably priced in comparison to other GF products.  It freezes well, and you get a bunch of slices from one loaf.

Something you'll have to get used to if you are new to the GF lifestyle: Most bread slices are very small.  The pieces that Udi's makes are about the size of my palm, which means that they are perfect for hungry toddlers.  I have had this experience with nearly every gluten-free brand, so I wanted to give you a heads up so you don't think something is wrong with your whole grain loaf. 

If you are vegan, you should know that this bread contains egg whites.  It is, however, free of dairy, soy, and nuts.

One thing I don't like: This bread contains cellulose.  Cellulose is basically a form of wood pulp, and it's found in shredded cheese, dips, and desserts.  It is supposed to be safe in small amounts, and companies usually use it to extend the shelf life of foods or add thickness to a product.  I try to eat a very clean diet, so cellulose is not something I'm a fan of. 

That's really the only negative thing about this bread, though.  I like that the bread doesn't get soggy when I pile on the toppings.  Some of the other breads that I eat instantly fall apart when I prepare an egg-and-avocado sandwich.  I also like the texture of it.  If you have tried GF products before, you understand how important texture can be. 

My kids eat many different things on this bread, but their favorite recipe is listed below.  My kids are hardcore granola bar fans, so I turned their favorite snack into a yummy sandwich.  Enjoy!

Granola Bar Sandwiches

If your kids are anything like mine, you probably hear "I'm hungry" constantly.  Granola bar sandwiches are quick and easy to make, and they are packed with protein.  Protein helps tiny tummies feel fuller longer, freeing you up to do something other than prepare snacks 24/7.
