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!
Take care,
Gina

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!
