No Bake Peanut Butter Cookies (Dairy Free)

DSC00589

I pulled out my back. I have no idea what I did to it, but it seriously hurts. I have never had a hurt back before so this is a new one for me and it is not at all fun.

I can’t move. I’m sitting in my chair with a heating pad on my back like seriously cannot move. Which isn’t good because my job involves a lot of sitting on the floor, dancing and singing songs with little kids. I’m not sure how this is going to work at all.

Any advice for dealing with a hurt back? I’ve tried Aleve and Bengay and they just aren’t cutting it. Basically I want to sit still with a heating pad all day.

Plus it’s like 9000 degrees outside. Literally. And so humid. So I can’t cook and I made no bake cookies. I’ve been craving no bake cookies for awhile, but since I’m not eating butter I didn’t think actually having them would be possible. Since I felt awful all weekend I finally gave in and looked up recipes for these cookies. I needed something to pick me up! Clearly I’m cranky over here.

These definitely curbed my craving and put a smile on my face again. Plus, this recipe is easy enough for my husband to make me when I can’t move.
