Morning breakfast rush, school lunches, after-school-on-the-way-to snack – all perfect examples of times where quick, make-ahead, healthy snacks (like these no-bake, low sugar chocolate chip energy bites) are a lifesaver.

Peanut Butter Quick Bread

I came across a non-vegan version of this recipe in a vintage cookbook and decided I needed it in my life. And being that it's a yeast-free bread, it was right up my alley. (My breadmaking skills leave much to be desired. I have this unfounded fear of working with yeast. Yes, I know...I need… Continue reading Peanut Butter Quick Bread
