Peanut Free Granola Bars

At the risk of sounding dramatic, these are the tastiest, most filling, kid approved granola bars know to man kind.

Seriously though, these babies are quick easy and of course yummy.

With my oldest in school (and soon t ball eeeek!) I see the importance of allergy safe snacks. We may have lucked out in the peanut allergy department but I don’t even want my kiddos eating any on the way to school. I would want the same curteousy from other parents if that were my child who had severe reactions. Another need now is healthy nutrient dense food that can be eaten quickly. We are always rushing from one place to the next, and probably half of our diet is snacks. So I try to do my best to make our snacks work for us.

ANYWAYS these bars are free from peanuts but filled with taste!

Without further ado here is my school friendly granola bar recipe!

School friendly granola bars

  • 2 cups quick cook oats
  • 1 cup sunflower butter
  • 1/4 cup agave
  • 1/2 cup sunflower seeds
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 tbs flax seeds
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips

Combine and mix ingredients

Pour mix in 6×10 pan with wax paper.

Freeze for 1 hour.

Cut into squares and enjoy!

Don’t forget to make in bulk and freeze. I’d keep these in the freezer and then pop them in lunch boxes straight from there. These can get kind of crumbly, and freezing them seems to help.

I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

What are your go to snacks for busy days?
