Reviews for Double Peanut Bars
"My husband has high blood pressure and needed to reduce sodium. I replaced his beloved Pop Tarts with these bars and he loves them. I make them at least twice a month."
"Gosh, these bars are just amazing. And as a Registered Dietitian, I give them 2 thumbs up as the perfect snack (high fiber, whole grain, good unsaturated fats, and protein). I used a Fiber One cereal with wheaties-like cereal, clusters, and raisins. I added more raisins as my dried mixed fruit and used natural peanut butter. I might lessen the brown sugar next time just to reduce calories from added sugar. I am fully confident that they will still be amazing."
"Very yummy!! Super easy to make!"
