I am on a sugar free month right now, it’s really the first time ever that I’ve specifically cut out sugar. I didn’t THINK I ate a lot of sugar on a regular basis, but given that I’ve been having some withdrawal headaches for the last 36 hours, I would say it was more than I realized. I have noticed that I need a little something for an afternoon evening snack, so I turned to my favourite cookbook, FIXATE, for a solution.

Makes 16 servings. Each serving is 1 yellow container and 2.5 tsp

INGREDIENTS:

1 1/2 cups all natural smooth peanut butter
1/2 cup raw honey (or pure maple syrup)
2 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 large eggs (at room temperature)
1/2 tsp baking soda, gluten free

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Preheat oven to 350F.
2. Lightly coat 8×8-in baking pan with spray. Set aside.
3. Combine peanut butter, honey, vanilla extract, eggs, and baking soda in a large bowl. Mix well
4. Evenly spread batter into prepared 8×8 pan. Smooth top with a spatula.
5. Bake 20 to 23 minutes. Squares may be a little soft when coming out of the oven, but they will continue to cook.
6. Cool. Cut into squares.
