This is a guest post from Gina of Kleinworth & Co.

It’s that time of year where goodies & treats become more abundant. But you know what doesn’t become more abundant, time! Seems that the more the calendar fills with things to do, the more the demands keep piling on. So with all the bake sales, school functions & all the other commitments that happen once kids are back in school & the holiday season is upon us, I really start relying on my quick & simple no-bake recipes. With all the things to do, who has time for baking all day? I know I want to be in & out in as little time as possible without compromising flavor.

So I came up with these really easy bars that you can make in the microwave. How great is that? If you can mix, microwave & stir – then you can make these delicious Honey Almond Peanut Butter Bars that everyone will love! Let me show you how quick & easy the process is.
