No-Bake SunButter & Chocolate Bars

Did you know that many schools across the country have banned peanuts? Though it’s not a standard practice across the board, peanuts are the number one banned food in schools. Keeping peanuts out of schools can help prevent students from cross contamination, accidental sharing of peanut-based foods between kids without peanut allergies and kids with peanut allergies, and overall can keep the school and its students from encountering life-threatening situations.

On a lighter note, if you, your children, or someone you know has peanut allergies and you want to make a special treat that’s safe and delicious, check out these No-Bake SunButter & Chocolate Bars. These are great for bringing to school and sharing with a class.

These bars are reminiscent of a Reese’s, without the peanut butter and with a little bit of crunch thanks to the use of gluten-free graham crackers. Instead of peanut butter, these treats use Creamy SunButter. SunButter is a great choice for re-creating peanut butter based foods for those with peanut allergies. If you couldn’t guess by the name, it’s made with sunflower seeds. SunButter comes in a variety of styles, such as Creamy, Natural Crunch, No Sugar Added, and even Chocolate SunButter! It’s also available in on-the-go pouches, perfect for packing in a school lunch.
