No-bake heaven

So its been a while since I last posted! I haven’t been lazy, its simply all the stress of midterms, etc and etc. Never mind that though, regular updates from this moment onwards!! (I promise).

I have had one thing, and one thing specifically on my mind recently; no-bake recipes! What a genius invention! As I have repeated many a time, I am currently limited to a microwave and my imagination, but you can only do so much with a microwave. What didn’t cross my mind was simplifying it even further….no baking AT ALL.

I will be the first to outwardly admit my absolute obsession with pinterest. Its bad. A whole hour, if not more, spent on that website every day. I’m considering treatment…

Anyway, I feel like I’ve got a lot of good from it. Inspiration, encouragement to continue baking despite the shortages and expenses, and lastly, and perhaps most importantly, no-bake recipes! I will include my favourite ones in a link below to help you guys out, because I feel that the experience of making something delicious in a matter of seconds, must be shared with the world. Now I will admit, that most of them have oats and sugar and often a teeny-weeny bit of chocolate….so they are not exactly the picture of health! But I don’t know about you, I often have those days where (excuse my french) I just don’t give a SHIT. I need some sugar in my body, and I need it NOW. I may even be running late for work, or have a bunch of homework that I need to do, these recipes are perfecto for exactly that scenario.

The recipe I made most recently could even be what you might consider part of a ‘balanced diet’. Oats for fibre: check! Peanut butter for protein: check! Honey for natural sugars: check! And chocolate chips for yumminess: an almighty check! The list of benefits just keeps on growing, eh? It took me all of 0 mins to prepare, 5 minutes to make and 30 seconds to demolish using my own mouth and the mouths of others. Quite the success!

I’m even going to go against my general rule of following the recipe down to the decimal points and say that this does not apply to the majority of these recipes. I pretty much read the ingredients, threw them all in a bowl and set about mixing, adding more of certain ingredients as I went, making sure to taste regularly of course! It is so fucking easy that you have no excuse not to give it a go. I look forward to hearing your experiences! Peace and love ❤
