I’m convinced that if food blogging doesn’t work out for me, I have a future career at BuzzFeed. I am both amazing at coming up with click-bait and being that person who clicks through every single click-bait article that appears in their newsfeed. Basically, my life is one long stream of dramatic yet completely enticing headlines.
I don’t discriminate either. I will click anything from Bruce Jenner, to superhero news (#priorities) to ebola. If there was anything in my life that completely undermines my efficiency, it’s stupid and useless articles or any “21 ways you didn’t know you could use shoelaces”-style posts from BuzzFeed.
In addition to a long list of recipe ideas, I keep a file with catchy blog post or article titles in my phone. I almost never use the ideas I come up with, but should BuzzFeed ever come calling, I’m ready.
Last week I came up with a great one, which I genuinely debated using as the title of this post instead of “No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Protein Bars”. I cannot believe I am legitimately sharing this with the interwebs but I ALMOST named this post “How One Girl Met Multiple Soulmates on Facebook”.
I should probably explain…
Last week I asked my friends on Facebook what their one food they couldn’t live without would be. 90% of you said Peanut Butter. That is how I discovered that there’s basically an entire subculture of humanity that I would like to marry. For clarity’s sake, I said “nuts” in all forms and despite the fact that peanuts technically aren’t a nut (they’re a legume), I totally was eating a spoonful of peanut butter as I posted the question on Facebook. So by nuts I meant peanuts and to everyone who responded with peanut butter, I LOVE YOU.
These No-Bake Peanut Butter Cup Protein Bars are for my peanut butter loving soulmates of the world. And now that I know there are so many of you out there, I should warn you that they are completely addictive. We’re talking 12 bars down in 2 days kind of addictive.
But it’s okay. You are not alone. We can have a peanut butter themed potluck and a PBAA (peanut butter addicts anonymous) meeting all in one. Who wants in?
