Back to School with Santa Cruz Organic

This post is sponsored by Santa Cruz Organic but the content and opinions expressed here are my own.

We’ve been busy chasing summer, but the start of a new school year is finally just around the corner! The girls and I are excited to be partnering with Santa Cruz Organic to bring you one of our all-time favorite lunchbox staples – the classic PB&J!

I’ve had these two practicing making their school lunches this week – – three cheers for easy lunchbox solutions your kiddos can help put together – – and they are all over it! 


I am a sucker for a good PB&J, and lucky for me, so are my kiddos! Our favorite way to make them is with Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Peanut Butter and Santa Cruz Organic Strawberry or Mango Fruit Spread.


My kids love that they taste delicious, and I love that Santa Cruz products use only the highest quality Certified Organic and Non-GMO ingredients and processes. Their peanut butters are made with USDA certified organic peanuts, that not only taste great, but they also contain no sugar, no hydrogenated oils and no artificial ingredients – just peanuts and salt. Santa Cruz Organic fruit spreads are made from only organic fruit, spread easily, and taste amazing!



Santa Cruz Organics Applesauce is the perfect addition to your child’s lunch box. _DSC2070With 100% RDI of Vitamin C in every 4oz cup, you can feel great knowing your kiddo is getting the fuel they need for a busy and productive day at school.



And for a yummy after school treat, try these delicious Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies!

Flourless Peanut Butter Cookies


1 cup Santa Cruz Organic Dark Roasted Peanut Butter
1 cup sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 large egg, lightly beaten
Coarse sea salt, for sprinkling

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees and place the racks in the upper and lower third of the oven.
  2. Mix the peanut butter, sugar, vanilla and egg until well combined. Spoon 1 tablespoon of the mixture about 1 inch apart onto ungreased baking sheets. Flatten the mounds with a fork, making a crosshatch pattern on the cookies. Sprinkle coarse salt on top of the cookies.
  3. Bake until golden around the edges, about 10 minutes, switching the position of the sheets halfway through baking. Transfer to racks to cool.

Hope ya’ll have a great school year!!
