I’m sharing a back to school treat, a Paleo Nut Bar Recipe with Chocolate Drizzle. This healthy snack is easy to make, loaded with nuts and seeds, and Gluten Free, Paleo, and Vegan!!
Back to school… Sigh.
I’d like to tell you I’m currently sad to see my kids go back to school. But I’d be lying.
Every spring, I wait with anticipation for school to be out. I’m eager to travel with the family, and make the most of the beautiful scenery in our lush green mountains. I’m ready to cart my babies to the pool, make lemonade and popsicles over and over, and create summertime memories we won’t forget.
However, two to three weeks before school in back in session, inevitably, the kids start getting antsy. Irritable. Ready for change. Ready to be away from their sibling for some portion of the day.
The moment this altered-attitude occurs, I am ready for them to head back to school as well. I can’t stand bickering, and feel we will all appreciate each other so much more after a few hours of separation.
So now my babies are off with their books. They come home each day exhausted from mental challenges and sports, and much more tolerant of each other.
Isn’t school great?!?
While they are away, of course, I miss them again. I’ve been working on tasty and healthy lunchbox treats and after-school snacks so they taste a little bit of love, when they come home.
I’ve made healthy granola bars and energy bars plenty of times before. However my latest Paleo Nut Bar Recipe with Chocolate Drizzle is a real winner, because it’s made solely out of nuts, Wholesome!™ organic, non-gmo sweeteners, and a little spice.
That means each snack bar is paleo, gluten free, dairy free, and vegan. So unless you’re dealing with a nut allergy, these bars are perfect for everyone!
Both of my kids LOVE this Paleo Nut Bar Recipe with Chocolate Drizzle. Carson happens to be in a nut-free classroom this year, but he has been taking them to school to enjoy at lunch time nevertheless. (Far away from the nut-free table.)
The reason they love them so much is because this Paleo Nut Bar Recipe with Chocolate Drizzle is sweet and super crunchy.
The secret to the sticky syrup that flavors and holds the bars together, is the right combination of Wholesome!™ Organic Coconut Palm Sugar and Wholesome!™ Organic Blue Agave. Both sweeteners are unprocessed, non-gmo, and paleo/vegan friendly.
Once the coconut sugar melts into the agave, it creates a sticky base for the bars that will harden enough to form the bars, yet isn’t tough on your teeth. A touch of vanilla, salt, and cinnamon give these snack bars extra oomph, making them hard to resist.
You can enjoy them as-is, or drizzle the tops with a little dark chocolate. Either way, our Paleo Nut Bar Recipe with Chocolate Drizzle is a new family favorite.
Why not try them out on your kids? Or make them as a healthy snack, just for you!!
For easy lunchbox treats, wrap them individually and keep them in the freezer. That way, they’ll keep a long long time and cool the rest of the lunchbox items as they thaw.
