Clean Eating Chocolate Peanut Butter No-bakes

Cleaning eating chocolate peanut butter no-bakes

So much craziness in my world this past week. New job, husband out of town, quit sugar, blah, blah. Ugh. I’m sleepy.  Now that I’ve sugar detoxed, I think it’s time to start adding some healthy sugar back in! :) Phew!

My mom has a recipe that she gave me for Chocolate Peanut Butter No-bakes that I’ve been using forever. It’s tried and true–never steered me wrong. My husband loves it. mom's recipe

But, it calls for 2 cups of sugar. And peanut butter. I know, I know. I titled this with peanut butter. But I want people to know you CAN make it with peanut butter–and it’s just like the old fashioned one–but better with almond butter. 

This might be my new favorite go-to dessert. It doesn’t look the prettiest, but they are a healthier dessert than most and have plenty of protein and fiber!
