Easy Vegan Scotcheroos (No Bake!)
Did anyone else grow up eating Scotcheroos or Special K Bars? They’re crispy, salty-sweet, peanut butter cereal bars with a chocolate butterscotch topping. And yes, they’re just as good as they sound — totally decadent and (regrettably) shareable!
We’ve given these classic, NO-BAKE treats the ultimate MB remix with a naturally sweetened, gluten-free base and a fudgy, vegan chocolate “butterscotch” topping. Simple methods, just 9 ingredients, and no corn syrup or butterscotch chips required!
Fudgy Chocolate Peanut Butter Hummus
A fiber- and protein-rich dip that tastes like cookie dough? Oh yeah! We’ve been seeing chocolate hummus on grocery store shelves for a while, but we just couldn’t get on the bandwagon…until we decided to invite peanut butter to the party. GAME CHANGER!
While chocolate hummus strays in flavor from traditional hummus, it’s similarly creamy, delicious, and snack-able! This naturally sweetened version comes together in just 10 minutes with 6 ingredients you probably have around right now.

Pumpkin Peanut Butter Breakfast Cookies
I don’t know if we should be telling you this but…these cookies are inspired by dog biscuits.
It’s true! Allow us to explain.
We recently created a recipe for simple, nutritious peanut butter dog treats (recipe coming soon!), and we of course had to sample them. “Not bad,” we thought. And we wondered what would happen if we sweetened them a bit and turned them into cookies.
Spoiler alert: MAJOR WIN.
