Biggest Loser Crispy Peanut Butter Squares

This dessert is perfect for bake sales and school lunches and are sure to become favorites in your home. Kid and Family Approved, not to mention coworkers and neighbors.  There is never a time our tray of these crunchy squares doesn’t disappear immediately.  One of our staff’s teenage daughters said “I’m all for testing the spa recipes, but it’s nice when you make a regular treat like these!”   We waited until after she’d enjoyed them before telling her she was eating a Biggest Loser endorsed treat.

    Can’t believe I’m the first one to review these? These are really easy, really good, and really popular with my kids. I make them all the time. When I was out of agave I used genuine maple syrup and actually preferred it.
