Simple to make, healthy and delicious, these are my new go-to snack bars for my family!
As a mom of 3 busy little boys, I am looking for new, delicious snack ideas. And mainly because my little guys are always hungry. I never knew that little people could eat so much. I am almost afraid to see how much they eat when they are teenagers. And that isn’t that far away…
Now that I am getting back on track post-surgery, I am starting to make my kids snacks again. You know what’s not easy? Finding one snack that all 3 of them will eat. This one doesn’t like coconut, the other one doesn’t like peanuts, you get the idea. Until now. These bars get a thumbs up from all of them! This is life changing people…
These bars can be customized to whatever you and your family likes. You can add some other dried fruits and nuts, chocolate chips, whatever they like. But first, make them THIS way because they really are that good.
And I personally love the crunchy texture of the almonds in these bars. But since I’ve made them at least 4 times now, I’ve made them with cashews, peanuts and walnuts too. You can also switch up the nut butters as well. I can’t wait to make these with sunflower seed butter too for my kids’ friends that have nut allergies (and of course omit the almonds). These are also gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan and crazy easy to make.
And why not give your kids (or yourself) a healthy snack with trusted ingredients instead of all of those store bought snack bars which have unnecessary additives and sugar? Don’t get me wrong, there are plenty of times I give my kids pre-packaged bars and the world doesn’t come to an end. It’s all about moderation, right? When I have the time, I do love creating healthy, homemade bars, just like these.
