We love this No Bake Cookie Recipe! They are my husband's favorite! He has fond memories of enjoying these as a young schoolboy. He calls them "lunch lady" cookies. I love that they are so easy to make! This is a huge treat for him which cracks me up because they take less than 10 minutes to prepare. The hard part is waiting for them to cool. I taught Home Economics for 11 years and this was always one of the kid's favorite foods labs.
I love that I can use Smart Balance buttery sticks and spreads for cooking and baking because it is a way, I can make my cooking a little healthier around the holidays and all year without settling on taste. In my opinion if you are going to eat calories, they need to be worth it - which means they need to be tasty! As you know I recently had open heart surgery number 2 and though it is NOT due to atherosclerosis I made the switch to Smart Balance products years ago when the product was first introduced. My cardiologist suggested I make the switch and I am thankful I did.
Also, ALL Smart Balance® products are gluten-free which is a huge bonus for me. In addition to butter products Smart Balance® offers milk, peanut butter, popcorn, cooking oil, cooking spray and mayonnaise. I have used them all! We really love the PNB and Milk. Smart Balance products have always been made without hydrogenated or partially hydrogenated oils and are naturally 0g trans-fat.
This is really important for me for heart health. They contain a unique natural blend of polyunsaturated, monounsaturated and saturated fats designed to help improve the ratio of good HDL cholesterol to bad LDL cholesterol, along with omega-3s and other vitamins. This is why my physician recommended that I use this brand.
I love that was able to use the Smart Balance Butter and Peanut Butter in my No Bake Cookie Recipe and though they are exactly "healthy" they are a healthier choice by using Smart Balance.
