I love making a big batch of something that I can keep in the freezer so I have always have a healthy snack on hand when my afternoon cravings kick in. These sugar cookie peanut butter bars are the perfect snack when you are craving something sweet, but want something free of gluten and dairy and made with all healthy, real ingredients. They are also packed with healthy fat and protein. These bars come in handy often for dessert as well!
These bars do not require any baking; you simply freeze them to allow them to set. When you are ready to eat the bars simply remove them from the freezer and allow about 5 minutes for them to slightly defrost prior to cutting and eating. Keep the bars stored in the freezer for up to six months.No Bake Sugar Cookie Peanut Butter Bars - free of refined sugar, gluten and dairy!Click To Tweet
