1. Healthy Peanut Butter No Bake Pretzel Bars
We've been eating gluten free for almost two years now. Thus, I haven't eaten pretzels in almost two years. When I started my Whole Foods journey and completed the 21 Day Sugar Detox, I was able to finally balance my blood sugar. Before that, I had no idea my blood sugar was out of whack! Looking back now...I found that when my blood sugar started to dip, I would reach for pretzels or crackers. At the time I didn't realize that I was only making my blood sugar more unregulated. What I needed was a balanced snack! I have learned so much in two years, by focusing on how to balance my plate! So I've slowly started adding foods back into my diet, on occasion, that I used to eat all of the time. I'm experimenting and observing how my body reacts to these foods since I have been mainly eating whole food products. Last week I saw that Snyders brand carried a GF pretzel. I bought some and they were very good! I wanted to make a treat for Thanksgiving that included the pretzels. At first I was going to make chocolate covered pretzels. Then, I thought I'd add peanut butter to the chocolate. And then... I remembered a crushed pretzel strawberry bar that my mom used to make when I was younger. Ta da! I decided to crush the pretzels and mix them into the peanut butter with chocolate chips. But then decided on a chocolate layer on the top. If I do say so myself....these turned out great!!
