When I asked you what you wanted to see more of on Happy Healthy Mama, two of the most popular answers were “snacks” and “lunch box ideas”. These healthy apple peanut butter snack bars fit the bill for both of those.
They are made with no flour, no oil, and no refined sugar, so you can feel good about feeding them to your children. And if you decide you want to snack on one, you can feel good about that, too.
Like most things coming out of my kitchen these days, these healthy snack bars are quick and easy. You only have to dirty up one bowl when you make them. If you’re a busy mom like me, you know how important that is!
The most important thing, though, is that Meghan loved them. She called them “bery, bery delicious!” She’s getting so big that I can’t help but love her words that still sound baby-ish. Here’s a picture of her trying on my wedding veil recently. Seriously?! How did she get so big?
Sorry for the off-topic moment. I don’t talk about Meghan around here as much as I used to. On to the recipe for these simple and delicious Apple Peanut Butter Snack Bars!
How to Make Apple Peanut Butter Snack BarsPrint
This is the first time I’ve included peanut butter in a recipe in quite a while. In case you are wondering, I have been re-introducing foods into my diet to see if Luke’s outgrown his intolerances. He’s done well with nuts and peanuts! I’ll tell you more about it when I finally get around to finishing his 10 month (and now 11 month!) post.
If you’d like a peanut-free snack bar, however, this could easily be made so by swapping out the peanut butter for sunflower seed butter. Coconut oil would work, as well. (Check out my Goodness Bars that are similar to these and made with coconut oil.) You can find even more healthy snack recipes here. As always, enjoy!
