Peanut Butter Chocolate Oatmeal Bars recipe No Nuts

It’s not widely known that Buba is deadly allergic to nuts on my blog. It’s something that I have struggled with since the awful day we found out. If you know me outside of my blog you will know that I ‘used’ to be obsessed with anything peanut butter. Peanut butter reeses, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, to just a spoonful before bed, I was always eating peanut butter. The very first Christmas after “it” happened I was devastated that not only the way we lives our lives had changed but all my favorite holiday recipes had nuts in them.

It’s been three years on and I was ever so excited when my friends came to the rescue and introduced me to Wowbutter. It is fake peanut butter, that taste EXACTLY like the real deal but made from soy. I really didn’t believe it until they brought some home for me to try out. Now, I am back to enjoying all the foods and desserts I love and here to share them all with you over the coming months.

Even though Wowbutter is in our lives now I still don’t think I will ever give any to Buba just for the fear factor that he might get confused and think he can now have it and try it when he isn’t around us. Maybe when he is old enough to know we have something different at home. As a kid I think he would get confused because it looks the same, taste the same, and even smells the same.

    • Thanks Alison. I didn’t either but in heaven now that I do! I was missing it so much. It’s hard to have a child with a severe nut allergy and have an obsessed with peanut butter myself. lol I haven’t had it in years!

  1. I had no idea you could get peanut free peanut butter, you learn something new every day. This recipe looks downright delicious Jenny, will definitely be giving this a go xxx

  2. So great to hear about a nut free “peanut butter” my husband is allergic to nuts also and I’d be interested to see if he liked the taste if this because at the moment the smell of it even makes him feel funny but I’d like to know whether that was because he knows if he ate it he would be poorly…..not sure if that makes sense!

    Anyway this looks delicious Jenny and if I manage to get hold of some of this stuff I’ll definitely be giving it a go!! Xx

    • Yes do try it. I completely know what you mean Buba won’t eat cake says its yucky just cause he knows it has eggs in it. Well if you can’t I can always mail you some!! Lol

    • Thank you so much hunny that means a lot coming from such a great photographer like yourself. I actually didn’t like the way they came out not what I envisioned but couldn’t redo them. Lost day light as they say. Hahaha
