A yummy treat ... peanut free!!

Hi there!

This weeks ABAC post for PaperWorksCo follows on from last week's birthday invitation.  In keeping with the robot theme for Jacob's birthday invites, I created this sweet treat bag holder.  Inside I have added  a couple of peanut-free peanut butter cookies.  Yes, that is contradictory but read on and I'll explain ...

Jacob has severe food allergies, nuts being one of them.  I miss peanut butter terribly, but of course, Jacob has never eaten it so therefore does't know what he's missing!  Anyway, I discovered WOW! Butter in the organic section of the grocery store one day ... a roasted soy product .... which tastes just like peanut butter - WOW definitely describes it!!  LOL   So I thought I would bake some peanut butter cookies using the WOW! Butter instead ... and it worked ... and Jacob LOVES them to boot!

So the motivation behind this treat bag is that many parents who don't have allergies to deal with don't often know of the alternatives out there.  So I thought whilst giving out treats, why don't I take advantage and do a little bit of educating at the same time!  I intend on each child receiving one of these treat bags, which will also include a recipe card inside for the parents ... they are soooo quick and easy to bake!

If you want to the recipe it is included in my post over at the PaperWorksCo blog here or you can request it and I'll email it to you!  Or you can simply take your Peanut Butter cookie recipe and replace the peanut butter with an alternative product!

Wow ... I've rambled on.  Apologies but this is an issue that is of vital importance and obviously one that is close to my heart.  Thanks for listening!!

Back to my project - I've used Alfy Tinheart once again to continue with the theme, same papers and colours.  The treat bag tutorial I found over on SCS and just modified the measurements to fit my treat bag - very easily done!

I just hope Mr Mojo will be waiting for me on my return!

Enjoy your Sunday everyone!

This is amazing Danielle. I just love how you have matched the treat bag with the invitations! The punch along the top edge is so appropriate I think. Love the paper too!
Your recipe sounds wonderful. I am so glad you found that one for your family.
