These PB&J Bars are a take on the classic sandwich we all know and love. Made with protein-packed peanut powder, oat flour, organic jam and coconut oil, you can feel good about enjoying these bars whenever you please. This post is sponsored by Kroger. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
I’ve made plenty of crumble bars before (see here and here), but for some reason I never thought to make PB&J Bars — until now.
I honestly find this hard to believe because we’re huge PB&J fans over here at EBF. I ate a PB&J sandwich almost every single day for lunch throughout elementary, middle and high school. Isaac’s childhood was similar and to this day he still makes peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for lunch or a snack. You know, just your causal sandwich snack.
Because of this, I’ve come up with so many PB&J inspired recipes including a PB&J Smoothie (this baby is SO good), PB&J Trail Mix (such a fun combo if you can find the peanut butter chips), PB&J Overnight Oats (perfect high-protein breakfast) and PB&J Protein Bites.
And today I’m adding these PB&J Bars to the list. They’re like a standard crumb bars only made healthier with good-for-you ingredients. I think they’d make an awesome lunch box addition, but only if your kiddo goes to a school where peanuts are still allowed. (Do peanut-friendly schools even exist anymore? Clearly, I’m not a mama so I’m out of the loop.) If peanuts aren’t an option at school, just pack one in your own lunch box and save a few for the kids to enjoy as an after-school snack.
