This is one of the best bar recipes, they are very simple to put together and so good! --- make sure to use only salted peanuts, and leave them whole --- these freeze well

I love all of the ingredients in these bars. My only reason for rating so low, is they ended up rock hard. I prepared them exactly as written and had to throw the entire batch out.

I was trying to come up with an alternative to N*tures Valley "salty and sweet" bars and stumbled across this recipe. My husband is allergic to milk and wheat, making the store bought version a bad choice. I substituted maple syrup for corn syrup, and used gluten-free flour. They turned out amazing, and now this is my husbands new favorite snack.
