No bake recipes are not as simple as expected. Complications can create crummy or gooey results. But once you’ve found the right “base” of ingredients, there are no limits to what you can make.

I create no bake recipes often, and they are never the same twice! Once I figured out the perfect balance between crummy and gooey (neither), I’ve been able to expand my options to any flavor or nutrient combinations that I want. They make a delightful dessert, an easy “energy” bite or kid-friendly party treat. Store extra in the freezer for single serving access. Enjoy!
