Peanut Butter Squares

Technically these are cookies. But the way I baked them, they are square. So I'm going to call them squares. Regardless, they are amazingly delicious and totally guilt-free so I don't care. They are also only 4 ingredients. Easy as that!

1 C peanut butter (I used Smucker's All Natural Peanut Butter, no added sugar!)
1 C honey
1 egg
1 tsp baking soda

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
2. Mix together peanut butter and honey. Add in egg then baking soda
4. Pour into a greased 9x13 cookie sheet. The smaller the pan the better, they will cook thicker.
5. Bake for 10-14 minutes.
6. Take out of the oven and let set for about 10 minutes before cutting and serving.

NOTE: These squares bake very oddly because there is no flour. They have a tendency to puff up during the baking process, but once cooled and more dense.

White Chocolate Cinnamon Pretzels

This is the most addictive snack I have made besides puppy chow! This takes about 5 minutes to make from start to finish. It's perfect when you're in a rush to get to that party, or can't afford to spend a lot of money. If you bake in general, you should have three of these ingredients and you only have to buy two. It's that easy! Here's the original recipe, which I didn't change, but I'm going to look at some milk chocolate ones soon.
