RECIPE | Butter Crunch Bars

Wednesday, January 29

The real name for these delicious after-school morsels is "Sunflower Seed Butter Crunch Bars".
Knowing Ella would put her nose up to something that remotely sounded healthy, I opted to shorten them to "Butter Crunch Bars" when she asked me what I was making the other day. *wink*
After-school snacks are always a bit of a struggle. 

As a parent, I want to feel good about giving Ella something without all of the sugar and processed junk in typical snacks...but also something she is excited to eat because it actually tastes good. 

These delicious butter crunch bars are the exact thing Ella and I have both been looking for.
They are filled with good-for-you ingredients, are easy to whip up, and are quite tasty! (maybe even a little addicting). 

Adding the little heart sprinkles was a complete after-thought but...
how cute would these be for a guilt-free indulgence on Valentine's Day?!

I hope you'll try the recipe! It's definitely a winner.
