These granola bars aren’t pretty, but they taste great. They are gluten free, which means The Boy can eat them, and they are actually made with Sunbutter (a peanut butter like paste made from sunflower seeds and are therefore peanut and tree nut free!) which is why the title has peanut butter in quotation marks. It’s just that to convince The Boy to try them I had to lie and say it was peanut butter because he just recently discovered his love of peanut butter and has been eating it by the spoonful.
A long and boring into for a simple concept born from attempting to combine two things The Boy loves: oatmeal and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. Then I adapted it with the Sunbutter to make them safe for him to take to school in his lunchbox. ‘Nuf said. Bottom line? Make them. They’re worth it.
