Does anyone know of a granola bar that does not contain peanuts?

Thanks

In Canada we now have peanutfree Quaker granola bars, I searched their US site but I don't see them for you. I am not sure if you could somehow order them from Canada? I phoned Quaker to inquire about tree nuts and the women assured me that they were tree nut free as well. The almond containing bars are made on the floor above and under lock and key. so no traces, cross-contamination. Funny though, I haven't given them to my PA and TNA son as they contain coconut and for no apparent reason, I am afraid of coconut until he is teseted.

I just made some last night from a recipe from this site....and um they are good but they are not "bars" as they don't hold together. I think the threads are in the SNACKS forum...just do a search for granola bars. there are at least 3 or 4 recipes.

I also ordered some from Canada weeks ago and am waiting for them to arrive.

This link is for peanut/nut free granola bars made by a Canadian company. If you are in Canada/travel to Canada- you can buy peanut free granola bars made by Quaker. My kids prefer the nonuttin bars, better ingredients (but they are more expensive).

Below is link to a recent thread about granola bar recipes. There are 2 recipe links in the thread.

You can buy the Canadian Quaker nutfree granola bars at [url="http://www.peanutfreeplanet.com"]www.peanutfreeplanet.com[/url] . The chocolate chip ones are the BEST!

I think NoNuttin bars are the best tasting bars hands down. We order them by the case from Canada. (We're in PA)

We like the chocolate chip the best but they are all tasty. I keep a box in the car for times when a healthy snack is not nearby.

They keep very well for a long time so a case will last.

My son was so thrilled to finally have a bar like his older brother.

Now, my non-fa son loves them too so they both eat the same thing.

I bought the Quaker brand when I was in Canada last October and I didnt think there was any comparison. The no-nuttin are much fresher and softer and have a really tasty chocolate flavor.

I dont have any affiliation with them but I have to say that they're really tasty!

I agree with GinaC - Nonuttin bars are great. A friend told me about them. I live in New Jersey, but it's easy to order them even though they are in Canada. I ordered online and paid with Paypal, but they take credit cards and do the currency conversion automatically. If you order the sample pack first, you'll receive a coupon for free shipping on your next order. I also placed a large order and gave some to the school nurse to keep in case of emergencies. My daughter is very picky, but she loves these.

If you want to go to the store to buy something, try either Kellogg's Smart Start bars or Kellogg's All Bran bars. They're both new, and we've been using both. DS is PA. I'm sesame and shellfish.

DS had never had a granola bar before January (I think that's when we bought the All Bran bars), and he'll be 9 next month. It was so neat for him.

I've bumped the threads about these in the Manufacturer's thread, but here is a link to them:

Thank you everyone for your responses. I ordered the sample pack from nonuttin to see if my son likes them first. I can't believe Quaker sells peanut free granola bars in Canada and not in the States. Can you believe my husband just came back from a business trip from Canada. Well hopefully he will be going there again soon and then he can pick some up.

Thanks for all of your great answers.

My dh is a pilot and bids for trips to Canada just to pick up some Kit Kats, Dare cookies, and Quaker granola bars for our girls. So, good idea!

Turns out we can buy the NoNuttin bars just down the street at a local grocery store. We currently buy the Quaker Bars so I'll have to give them a try. Thanks Gina. Another snack our daughter loves is Sunrype Squiggles which are 100% fruit with no added sugar and no artificial flavours (and of course no peanuts). NP.

Does anyone happen to have one of these Quaker granola bars at home? I would like to order them if they are safe for my kids, but we have multiple allergies to avoid (egg, dairy, soy, sunflower, sesame in addition to the nuts). I see nonuttin is labelling for sesame seed shared line, so we have to look for an alternative.

They do list soy and the chocolate chip ones also list milk. I ordered them without checking. So now I have a box but can't give them to DS. We use them as school snaks for DD who has no allergies but attends a peanut free preschool. I think that the peanutfreeplanet site lets you check the ingredients before you order. Or at least one of the sites I

i do know they contain coconut which is why we don't buy them -- my son is allergic to coconut too!

Not a granola bar, but can anyone comment on the Allerenergy bars that are supposedly free of all top 8 (US) allergens? Do they actually taste good? Is it safe to order directly from the company website? There's no name, no address, phone number, email address, etc, just a comment form for somebody to contact the commenter. All the site says is the company founder has a child with MFA.

I thought they tasted ok. They are not very filling, quite crumbly and birdseedy in texture. The kids were not enthusiastic about them, but they tasted fine to me. We didn't rush out to order more, though.

I think we ordered ours through the Miss Robens website.

The NoNuttin bars are pretty good, except for the raisin ones.

As far as granola bars you can find in the store, you're out of luck in the US.

Jason likes the Enjoy Life Snack bars though... which are more like a cross between a cereal bar and a cookie.

"Chex Mix Bars Chocolate Chunk" are nut free and my NA TNA son loves them! They are available in just about every grocery store nationwide.

By steviesparents on Apr 2, 2010

Please stay away from Kellogg's they do not have a peanut free facility and they do not mark the items, "may contain". But they do, trust me, my son had a reaction last Friday to pop tarts, this was just confirmed by his allergist today. His throat began to close 5 minutes after he ate 1/2 of it. The only safe granola bars that we know of, please read all of your packages, are cascadian farms, and kashi. Anything made by general mills would also be fine.

On Kellogg's website it states "We do use a may contain statement for peanuts and tree nuts when the product is produced on a line that shares equipment with another product that does contain peanuts or tree nuts. " So I thought Kelloggs was safe. This frustrates me that you obviously had a bad experience - Did a CS rep admit they don't use "may contain" statements and do use shared lines?

I buy granola bars from Cascadian Farms. My son loves them!

By cervonil on Aug 18, 2010

Kmart629 - Cascadian Farms makes Peanut Butter and other nut granola bars. Do they make them on the same equipment as the non-peanut granola bars?

By Kmart629 on Aug 18, 2010

I remember calling the 800 number & they assured me that there is no nuts. I'm looking at the box now & there is no mention of nuts on the package. I stared buying them for my son's friend who is PA. (this was before my son had the allergy). They both eat them with no problems.

By cervonil on Aug 18, 2010

Thanks for the info! I'll give them a call too. The "May contain" statement is voluntary so they may not use it. A lot of times companies clean in between varieties and think that is good enough, but I prefer not to buy products made on shared lines with peanut butter ones. I'll let you know what they say.

Your welcome. I have the # if you need...800-624-4123 m-f 7:30-5:30 CST

By Kmart629 on Aug 19, 2010

Well, that is infuriating! I didn't realize the "may contain" is voluntary. My son & his friend eats them with no problem, I guess I just got lucky? Their products used to be a lot better. I notice now they changed a lot of them & now contain a ton more sugar. I also didn't know they were owned by Gen Mills. I guess they are a sell out now.

By cervonil on Aug 19, 2010

Apparently Cascadian Farms is owned by General Mills and they send the same standard information out no mater what question you ask. that infuriates me. They never answer my direct question, just send out the same generic statement for every single thing. The bottom line is that they probably do produce all their granola bars on the same line.
