I’d be lying if I said I didn’t care if my son’s friends liked me or not. I do, and I want my son’s to have meaningful and strong friendships. I want to get to know my son’s friends. And, I would love for our home to be one of their favorite “hang out houses.” You know, a place that feels like home away from home. Where I can hear all their giggles, weird boy noises and arguments. Where they can build and deepen their friendships and have authentic bonds of affection. My oldest is seven, so I’m just starting to get into this space, but I am pretty darn sure that food can be a bonding experience for boys?
While these no bake chocolate peanut butter bars are no Reese’s peanut butter cup, they’re dang close. And who doesn’t love chocolate and peanut butter? Oh yeah, kids with a tree nut allergy. Well, in that case, use sunflower seed butter in lieu of the peanut butter and skip the crust. Here is why I love these bars:
Package-free, less nagging to get them to pick up wrappers left in your car
The perfect combo of sweet and salty but secretly healthy
High-fiber fruits plus healthy fats help stave off pre-dinner hunger and/or serve as the ideal pre-game fuel
You only need a food processor or blender
Who doesn’t love a “no-bake” recipe?
Outside of food, experienced mamas of older children, how do you become the “hang out house?” #withoutvideogames #withoutlargescreens
