Having a dietary restriction at college can be difficult, especially when you are craving a homemade treat. I mean, who really likes those boxed gluten-free cookies that are full of ingredients you cannot pronounce over a warm, gooey, straight out of the oven cookie or bar? Well, next time you are in the mood for an amazing dessert, whether you are gluten-free or not, make these effortless flourless peanut butter chocolate chip toffee bars. I guarantee you they are worth it.

 #SpoonTip: use all natural crunchy peanut butter with only salt and peanuts. If no salt, add 1/4 teaspoon to recipe.
