P.B. Cookie Bars

Serves: 8

Happy Friday! I hope you’ve had a great week! I know many of you have a long weekend beginning today! I hope you have something fun planned….or at least very relaxing! I actually decided to escape for the weekend and drove to Cape Cod yesterday! Even though the weather isn’t supposed to be the greatest, it will be nice to visit with my grandmother and relax for a bit! She already has a list of restaurants she wants to go to and I had only one request…That we go to Smuggler’s ice cream shop for my all time favorite ice cream; French Vanilla Raspberry Truffle. Yes, I plan on eating it every day several times with a huge dollop of real whipped cream! ;)

But before we head into the weekend, I have one delicious recipe to share with you! These bars are dairy free, oil free, gluten free, sugar free, vegan, no sodium, protein packed, wonders!!! They could technically even be “no bake” if you wanted to make them that way! I hope you enjoy them AND your long weekend! :)
