I’m a sucker for a great doughnut, but sometimes I want to eat a whole dozen of them. My doctor tells me that eating that much fried dough isn’t good for me, but I’ve found a loophole. My Baked Cinnamon Almond Butter “Churro” Doughnuts are baked not fried. You still probably shouldn’t eat a dozen of them by yourself though.

I love creating recipes that don’t require any heat because I can make my kids do it when I get lazy. This Easy No Bake Peanut Butter Granola was made with your kids in mind. I’ve included JUSTIN’S® Chocolate Hazelnut and Almond Butter and JUSTIN’S® Classic Peanut Butter for added sweetness. I’ve also added “easy” and “no bake” in the title so they don’t complain. You can even let them have a piece if you’re feeling extra generous.
