Peanut Butter Chocolate Lara Bars were my eldest daughter’s very favorite flavor of Lara bars. And really, who can blame her?! Peanut butter and chocolate are such a great combination. When my son’s hives pointed to peanuts, we knew we needed to get all peanuts out of the house.
It took a few tries, but my girls love sunflower seed butter as much as they ever loved peanut butter. We go through one homemade batch a week! And when we shifted towards a a more Paleo lifestyle, sunflower seeds were already well established and loved in our house.
I am not sure why it took me so long to think of recreating my daughter’s favorite Lara bar with sunflower seeds as a base…but life is like that sometimes. The obvious kind of lurks in the recesses until one day, BAM! You have an epiphany.
I am happy to report the whole family loved these bars, and my daughter has her favorite flavor back!
