It is often said that the key to staying healthy while still enjoying the food you love is moderation: you can eat that cookie after dinner, but don’t have more than one. But when you inevitably crave a second, that old adage whispers in the back of your mind, making you feel guilty for giving into a natural human instinct.

The solution is simple: no-bake peanut butter bites. Made of natural PB, oatmeal, and honey, they give you all the sweet you crave without the ingredients that make you want to hurl chunks after eating three. Plus, you don’t even need an oven.
