3 ingredient peanut butter no bakes!

 

That’s right… three small ingredients + no baking = a task anyone can do!

Occasionally I’ll visit a retirement home and talk about a nutrition topic of their interest. The other day and they were asking me about health and wellness along with quick and easy desserts. The chocoholic in me wanted to scream PB CHOCOLATE NO BAKES!!! You know…the ones with the sugar…butter….PB…and did I mention a lot of sugar?? The ones that mom makes when you come home from college on holiday break Winking smile

 

 

But the dietitian in me said I would look into healthier alternatives for easy desserts, and I think I made a good find on this one:

 

Peanut butter…honey…and oats…how much easier could it get?

Try not to eat them all at once! Smile
