So I created these fabulous grab and go Peanut Butter Breakfast Bars for him to eat on the bus on the way to school.

I used Extra Crunchy SKIPPY® Peanut Butter for my bars, but you could also use smooth (sometimes younger children prefer that).

These are also fun to make with the children, although the cooling time can test their patience and mine sometimes! I also mixed up these flapjacks a little by using an oats and super grains mix from Asda, which is a blend of oats, red quinoa and golden flax seeds.

Preheat your oven to 180C (160C fan) gas 4.  Grease and line a shallow 20cm square tin with parchment or greaseproof paper or use a silicone tray (I love them as they store flat and are easier to use).
