GF SunButter Pretzel Snack Bars are great for kids and a perfect “pick-me-up” snack for anyone. Pretzels have been a popular add-in to recipes from cookies, to energy balls, and even brownies.

I guess you could call me a “snack bar junkie” it seems like I am always trying something new. Maybe it’s because so many pre-made snack bars are full of ingredients I can’t eat…not to mention costly.
And of course, for you folks that are not gluten-free, don’t pass up this recipe just because it says gluten-free, just use regular pretzels.
To Make GF SunButter Pretzel Snack Bars You Will Need These Ingredients:
  • Gluten-free old-fashioned oats
  • Salted nuts
  • Mashed bananas ~ less ripe for Low FODMAP
  • SunButter ~ or other nut butter
  • Gluten-free pretzels ~ read labels carefully for food allergy ingredients
  • Honey, pure maple syrup, or agave syrup ~ pure maple syrup for Low FODMAP
  • Semi-sweet mini chocolate chips, I used Enjoy Life allergy-friendly ~ optional

Store in an airtight container or freeze if you aren’t going to eat them within a couple of days.

I placed wax paper between the bars to freeze.

Weight watcher points for recipes without chocolate chips are 5.4 per bar.
Weight watcher points with chocolate chips are 6 per bar.

  • Preheat the oven to 350.
  • Pour the oats and nuts onto a large baking sheet. Bake for 8-10 minutes tossing a couple of times during the baking time. Leaving the oven on…remove oats and nuts from the oven, set aside, and let cool down.
  • Line a 9"x13" baking dish with parchment paper. You can do this while the oats and nuts are in the oven.
  • Heat SunButter or other nut butter and mashed bananas in the microwave or in a small pan on the stove stirring until well combined. Set aside to let cool a bit.
  • In a mixing bowl combine the oats, nuts, and banana mixture.
  • Fold in cut-up pretzels and 2 Tbls of chocolate chips. (They will melt slightly)
  • Spread the mixture into prepared baking pan. Sprinkle the remaining chocolate chips over the top.
  • Bake 25-30 minutes or when golden brown.
  • Let cool and cut into any size bar you like. I cut mine into about 18 bars.
