  1. Mmmm… these look delicious! Lol, the song is from “Family Guy”… my bf and I sing it all the time πŸ™‚

  2. Just made these and ate one (and a half). So good! My son loved them too. There is a batch freezing right now. πŸ™‚

  3. These are super easy & delicious! One tip I found useful – instead of spending the extra $ on the peanut butter chips, I microwaved a spoonful of peanut butter then drizzled it on the top after the bars were done baking.

  4. I am wondering if you could substitute whole wheat flour in this recipe. I haven’t really worked with whole wheat flour but see this as a possible easy substitute to add a little more nutrition to these bars. Regardless, I will make them since they look really good! Thanks.

    1. I would suggest by starting to do a 1/2 white flour and 1/2 whole wheat flour and go from there. Let us know your results!

    1. I haven’t personally done with sunflower seed butter, but I think it should work great! Let us know how it turns out!
