Healthy Treat for Today: Peanut Butter Honey Bars (Gluten free!)By
Today begins my new series of posts in which I will share recipes for yummy, healthy treats for you to make for your family.
You’ll appreciate these recipes if you:
a) Took the NO SUGAR Plunge.
b) Want to take the NO SUGAR Plunge.
c) Have never heard of the NO SUGAR Plunge.
d) Like yummy food.
e) Have a family who likes to eat.
f) Want to avoid white sugar and white flour.
g) Want to make the most of every bite you put into your mouth.
h) Some of the above.
i) None of the above.
j) All of the above.
(I’m sorry, but if you chose ( j ), I must let you know that that particular option is not really an option…as you can not take the plunge having never heard of the plunge…nor can you “some of the above” at the same time as you can “none of the above”. If you chose ( j ), it would appear that you eat way too much sugar to function properly, proving that you should really take the NO SUGAR Plunge with us!)
My goal with these recipes is to help us all to be able to offer our families special dishes/desserts/drinks/snacks that we can feel good about. They will not have any processed sugars or flours in them…and as much as I can…I’ll try to post recipes that don’t even have flour at all!
And here…is the promised recipe for Peanut Butter Honey Bars:
1 cup peanut butter (be sure to use natural peanut butter with only peanuts and salt in the ingredient list!)
1/2 cup honey
1/4 t. vanilla
1/8 cup sesame seeds
Mix all ingredients well. Spread mixture into a 8×8 pan. (I used a baking stone) Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. Allow bars to cool completely before cutting.
These Peanut Butter Honey Bars are moist and satisfying! And so easy to make!
Stay tuned for more yummy recipes! Soon to come (listed in no particular order):
And oh so many more! I can’t wait to share these with you!
Be sure to leave a comment to let us all know how you’re doing with the Plunge…or if you’d like to jump in with us!
And be sure to come back tomorrow for another recipe to treat your family. I’m not sure…but I’m leaning toward the Creamy Pudding…
Any votes on that one?
