Easy to put together, these no bake peanut butter bars are a real crowd pleaser. Made with all natural peanut butter instead of a chemical-laden commercial brand, these are sweet and rich all at the same time. With a crust made with fiber-rich peanuts instead of refined sugar, you don’t have to feel guilty when you indulge. For a twist, or if you’re allergic to peanuts, use almond butter and almonds instead. We promise, it’s just as delicious!
