Have you ever watched a commercial advertising some delicious and delectable looking food and then couldn’t get the image out of your mind?  Well, that’s kinda what happened to me.  I did a Throw Back Thursday post on Facebook  and talked about what school lunches looked like as kids.  coco nutty no bake cookiesMy favorite happened to be No-Bake cookie day, well, that was all it took.  I began thinking about them. Dreaming about them. Obsessing about them.

Now, most of you know that I do not believe in dieting, but enjoying things in moderation.  The key to that is knowing if you can want to moderate it.  I don’t want to moderate No-Bakes.  I want to eat the pan!  I CAN, of course, but I don’t want to.  Know thyself, right?!

That’s where this recipe came about.  I decided to try to make the No-Bakes a bit healthier and see if I wanted to enjoy them in moderation.  I think you will agree, these are amazing and best of all they lasted more than a day at my house. Win!
