While I used 1 cup of chocolate chips and 1 cup of peanut butter chips, you can adjust the ratio depending on your preference. From Cookie Madness Note for Salt Fiends: Substituting some of the chocolate chips with peanut butter... More

No Oven Required: Oatmeal Orange Slice Cookies

HeartofGlass 3 comments

I hadn't thought of fruity candy in a long time, until recently when I was reading David Lebovitz's blog, in which he spoke of his love of orange slice candy. I recalled seeing several recipes for cookies with orange slice candy, often made with oatmeal. It seemed like the perfect candidate for a whimsical no-bake cookie. More

While the oatmeal-orange slice candy is the most popular combination, using red or white jelly candies would also work, as would spice drops or gumdrops, depending on your preference.... More

No Oven Required: Real British 'Tiffins'

HeartofGlass 12 comments

In honor of my revelation of the need for fat and flavor, here is a no-bake recipe from the blog Joy of Baking, an English recipe called chocolate tiffins (otherwise known as British no-bake chocolate cake) made with very real ingredients. (Although the texture really resembles a candy bar or chocolate brittle). If you've made shortbread, or any kind of plain cookie and want to give it a second life, it's a wonderful way of reincarnating the ingredients. More

White Chocolate Cashew Krispies

HeartofGlass 10 comments

Rice Krispies were rather dull to me. I preferred cereals with animal cartoon spokespersons like the Trix Rabbit. I was suspicious of the strange, creepy little men named Snap, Crackle, and Pop. But my new friend assured me not to worry—she could make the bland cereal taste good. She heated a bag full of puffy marshmallows and a bowl of neon yellow oleo, and stirred in the crackling cereal, measuring as if by memory. More

No Oven Required: Toasted Oatmeal Topping for Ice Cream

Sweets HeartofGlass 3 comments

Every now and then I do have dessert for dinner. Still, I'm convinced that if I top my ice cream with some healthy toasted oatmeal, nuts and raisins, it does count as a proper meal—so long as it doesn't become a habit. More

No Oven Required: Tastykake-Inspired Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies

Forget girls versus boys: the real social hierarchy in grade school is the division between kids with Cool Lunches and kids with Dorky Lunches. not even Oreos could compete with my friend Amy's lunch treat. Amy had the officially, totally tubular, Coolest Snack of all: Tastykake Butterscotch Krimpets. I was not even allowed to ask for Krimpets when shopping with my mom. To this day, I have never had Butterscotch Krimpets but am pleased to share these homemade (and slightly healthier!) butterscotch treats made with oats. More

No Oven Required: Wholesome Grandma Cereal Bars

HeartofGlass 8 comments

As a little girl, I was convinced that my grandmother was the ONLY person in the world who ate fibrous, flaky bran cereal and prune juice. She also loved pistachio and peach ice cream, Filet-O-Fish sandwiches, and Entenmanns's raspberry swirl Danish. In honor of my grandmother's creative interpretation of healthy eating and living, I've made some cereal and nut bars called Swag Bars. Any wheat, bran, or whole grain cereal that you can pulverize would work nicely, as would any nut butter. More

No Oven Required: My Peanut Butter Cup Runneth Over

HeartofGlass 19 comments

Why is the peanut butter inside a Reese's Peanut Butter Cup like no other substance on earth? The Reese's peanut butter you buy in a jar is nothing like the Reese's Peanut Butter Cup. Why is that sweet, gritty peanut butter so addictive? Recently, I discovered a recipe for peanut butter bars or cups that attempted to replicate that same texture. More
