There is a special place in my heart for peanut butter and jelly! You combine that with cereal and my heart and tummy are full and happy! It’s back to school season and my go-to lunches when I was growing up was peanut butter and jelly sandwiches every.single.day. You would think I would have grown sick of them but to this day I eat a few a week (especially when I was pregnant). Not only is it a great FODMAP safe snack option but it’s easy to grab and go. I decided to combine my favorite things to come up with this delicious FODMAP safe snack recipe!
Also, for those following the FODMAP diet it can be hard to find store-bought products that are safe. I always recommend taking the extra time to read the back of labels to be on the lookout for hidden triggers like high fructose corn syrup, garlic, molasses, etc. This is so important because these hidden triggers can wreck havoc on the gut if you are not careful. This is why I love One Degree Organics cereal as the ingredients are pure and easy to understand. You would think this is a no brainer but if you look at most food labels, you can’t pronounce some of these words. Gross!
There is nothing better than a combo of almond butter & jelly plus cereal to make these delicious cereal bars!
- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
- In a medium size saucepan, add all of the ingredients minus the cereal and chia seeds. Whisk the ingredients together until fully melted for 2-3 minutes.
- Remove the pan from heat and gently stir in the cereal and chia seeds.
- Pour the cereal mixture into a parchment lined loaf pan and bake for 15 minutes.
Store the cereal bars in a Tupperware container in the fridge for up to a week.
