Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars
Happy first day of fall! First day of September is still very special to me. To properly celebrate it I made Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars that also happen to be vegan.
My toddler boy started school this week, and since he is in Pre-K, we are asked to pack his lunch every day. I must say that I am quite excited about this. The little guy is a great eater and every morning he checks his lunch box and gets very happy when he sees his favorite foods.
Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars
These Vegan & Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars are such a perfect, healthy lunch box treat. The bars are made with gluten-free flour and also with Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Oats that we always have on hand.
I make oatmeal almost every morning. However, this time I wanted to change things a bit and actually use the oats in a delicious treat. Bob’s Red Mill Oats are an incredibly versatile, whole grain, rich in dietary fiber and can help reduce cholesterol.
The Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars are made with just a few ingredients and they come together in less than one hour. You can serve them warm, peach cobbler style and top the whole thing with vegan ice cream.
Also, you can drizzle the bars with melted vanilla coconut butter, refrigerate and cut into bars. The bars are a delicious part of lunch boxes, your kids can eat a yummy and nutritious treat this way.
These Vegan & Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars are perfect for breakfast as well. If you have some hectic morning routine, these are delicious straight from the fridge or if you prefer something warmer, you can pop a bar into the microwave for 20 seconds.
My little guy was very happy to find these Gluten Free Peach Cobbler Bars part of his lunch. I am sure he is looking forward to devouring one. I feel good when I know his treats are full of nutrients. The coconut butter drizzle is so fabulous, it adds a tropical twist to these bars and looks like melted white chocolate.
