The easiest and best recipe for raw peanut butter and chocolate brownies

So I tried to make Reese’s peanut butter cups and this is what happened…

The other night I was absolutely craving Reese’s peanut butter cups but it was raining. Heavy. So I decided to try and make something to satisfy the peanut butter craving, y’know that would not involve me standing in the kitchen with a face mask on, eating it straight from the tub.

So this is my recipe for peanut butter and chocolate brownies and I swear it’s such an easy vegan snack recipe that the laziest of lazy girls can make it, everyone will love them and they’re raw so you don’t even have to bother baking them. And I bet you’ve got all the ingredients already in your kitchen. Should I just rename this blog Lazy Girl’s Guide to Baking?!

Fancy a healthy snack? Try these oat-so-good banana oat cookies

Someone at work recently asked me what I do for ‘downtime’ and I said ‘listen to podcasts and bake.’ (I didn’t think ‘worrying’ was the correct answer.) So today I made cookies and listened to an interview with Prozac Nation author Elizabeth Wurtzel, one of my favourite writers, talking about smuggling cocaine into Norway in her diaphragm and almost destroying her writing career.

That’s it. I’m always looking for a healthy snack to binge on when I’m hunched over my laptop on a deadline – and I love recipes with 3 or 4 ingredients so I don’t have to go shopping for baking ingredients I’ll never use again – so these vegan oat cookies are my new go-to healthy snacks when I need a sugar-free pick-me-up.

Easy 4 ingredient snack recipe: the best raw snack you’ll ever eat

Like everyone else, I’ve been trying to cut down on sugar but I just can’t seem to kick the cravings for something sweet, especially after dinner. Going sugarfree is making me go a bit Incredible Hulk so to combat this, I’ve been exploring the world of baking. Or should I say no-bake baking because I am all about the raw vegan treats these days, as you can probably tell from my Instagram.

My favourite, most addictive creation to date are these no bake brazil nut and date squares covered in melted dark chocolate. Words won’t do justice to how delicious these vegan snacks are but they’re kinda like caramel squares but healthier and so easy to make. Trust me, someone who can’t make a Pot Noodle can make these.
