This is an easy and awesome clean cheat recipe that you can make and eat in less than 30 minutes! I made these a few weeks ago and posted them to my Facebook page and so many people liked them I figured I better do a blog post too! I've had it drafted up for a while now and just keep skipping past it! But better late than never! I topped mine with banana slices but you could totally leave them off too. I just thought they looked WAY cuter with a little banana slice on each and it helped me to make sure I was cutting the portions just right too! These peanut butter squares are not too sweet but just enough sweetness to make you feel like your having a treat while still staying on track towards your goals. Gord and I are following the 21 day fix meal plan and workouts so we are trying to stick as close to the meal plan as possible. These are fix approved and count as 1 Yellow container if you are following the plan too.
