There’s something about the word “cookie” that makes us smile. Memories of childhood, perhaps, when our biggest worry focused on which cookie to choose from Grandma’s cookie jar? But we don’t always have time to bake in our busy adult lives — and we also don’t want to resort to grabbing processed products at the store. Here’s the solution: no-bake cookie bars. This wholesome recipe is beyond simple, and better yet, it can be customized with your favorite dried fruits and berries, nuts or nut butters.
Some mornings are so busy, even boiling water will set you back. Rather than grabbing another granola bar for breakfast, enjoy that oatmeal you wish you’d had time to make. With this recipe, just open the fridge, grab and go! Prep is all done the night before—no cooking required. Filling and fiber-rich oats, protein-packed chia seeds and creamy Greek yogurt come together with tropical coconut and pineapple for a quick, nutritious and delicious morning meal.
Forget love…chocolate is in the air this month! Whip up a batch of creamy, dreamy fudge when you crave the taste but don’t want the guilt. Unlike traditional recipes, this vegan version is made without condensed milk or milk chocolate. The perfect blend of ripe banana, coconut oil and raw cacao makes it a healthy treat to share with your sweetheart (or keep it all to yourself — we won’t judge!).
Sometimes “just a bite” is enough to silence a sweet tooth or tide you over until your next meal. That’s when you need these quick-to-make morsels! In a matter of minutes, you can be munching on a mini-sized dessert or wholesome snack, made with superfoods raw cacao, raw honey and flax plus a blend of healthy nut butters.
Bars are your best bet for protein on the go: no messy powders to mix, cups to fumble with or questions about how much you’re getting. They come in every flavor imaginable, and the price is usually right. But there is one drawback. Next time you unwrap a store bought bar, take a look at the label. Chances are, you can’t pronounce all the ingredient names. And if you try to count them? It’s pretty likely you’ll reach 10, if not 15 or 20.
It’s OK to cave to cookie cravings with these quick, 50-calorie creations. Made with fiber-filled oats, rich cocoa and creamy peanut butter, they’re not only diet-friendly, they take just minutes to make—no oven required. See? A little something sweet doesn’t have to sabotage your diet!
If fewer daylight hours and chilly weather are starting to wear you down, pick up the pace with protein balls! Packed with this season’s star ingredient—pumpkin—plus almond butter, nuts, seeds and cinnamon, these no-bake treats are the perfect nutritious pick-me-up on a sluggish autumn day, or any time you need an extra energy boost.
