Get Snacking: Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Peanut Butter Granola Bars

Quick and easy healthy snacks whether it be during pregnancy, labour and postpartum (or for when kids are getting older) can be hard to find. This recipe is insanely easy, packed with protein and super transportable. 

But it's got nuts!?

If you or one of your children has an allergy to nuts, this definitely is not the recipe for you. If you're wondering if it's safe to eat nuts while pregnant or nursing babe, the most current research shows that your child's development of a nut allergy is not impacted by whether you eat or do not eat nuts throughout pregnancy and or while nursing. Yay!

Supplies

  • Parchment Paper
  • 8 x 8 in pan

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/4 cup Flax Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Hemp Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Sunflower Seeds
  • 1/4 cup Pumpkin Seeds
  • 1/2 cup Almonds
  • 1/2 cup Pecans
  • 1/2 cup Dried Cranberries
  • 1/2 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1 cup Peanut Butter

Directions

Place all ingredients in a large mixing bowl and stir ingredients together (it might be easier to use your hands to mix all the ingredients together). Cut a piece of parchment paper big enough so the paper hangs over the edges of the 8 x 8 inch pan. Place mixed ingredients on the parchment paper and use a fork to flatten the ingredients to the edges of the pan and then place in the fridge for a couple of hours. Once chilled the Peanut Butter Granola should easily be cut into bars. Store in the fridge in an airtight container for up to a week.

Enjoy!
