Back to school is finally around the corner!! That meas back to routine for me -I’m so ready!!- and it’s also time to start thinking about snacks and school lunches. For food allergy families, like us, back to school is both an exciting and stressful time of year because we have to ensure that all the food our child eats while in school is safe for them.
There are many allergy-friendly snacks I can buy, but definitely, I prefer to make everything from scratch. That way I can be 100% in control of what is in it. One of my go-to snack are protein/energy bar. They are incredibly delicious and filling. Win Win.
Confession time: Lately, I have been a little obsessed with protein/energy bars!
When it come to protein/energy bars I love to try different combinations, flavors, and textures. They are super easy and quick to make. They are convenient, a quick little “merienda” or snack neatly wrapped and ready to go.
To make the bars fun and visually appealing for my kids I added some M&M’s chocolate candies. The kiddos found them irresistible and gave them plenty to ooh and aah over.
These bars are perfect for school lunches or as a merienda (snack). Back home, we call merienda to anything we eat between meals. That means that we eat one merienda while in the school, and then one more in the afternoon. Whenever you decide to eat them, they will put a smile in your face.
Easy to make at home, super tasty, and much more affordable than store-bought. For on-the-go convenience, use parchment paper pieces to wrap individual bars.
I bought all the ingredients for this protein bars at my local Walmart, including the awesome bag of Fun Size MARS Chocolates Multi-Brand Snack Pack.
