I love easy to make, healthy treats. They are even better if I don’t have to bake them in an oven; just mix together the ingredients and it’s made! Perfect for the busy mom. Here are a few of my favorites:

No-Bake Oatmeal Raisin Carrot Cake Bites – from Averie Cooks

It’s a mixture of oatmeal raisin cookies and carrot cake. Great recipe for these no-bake oatmeal raisin carrot cake bites with lots of pictures that are so good an inexperienced, young cook could follow along easily.

Freezer Smoothies from Life As Mom

Such a great idea as homemade freezer smoothies can’t be ignored forever. With the creation of Ball’s new freezer jars it is easily a reality (this plastic freezes well and has tight fitting lids). What will smart mom’s think of next?

Coconut Date Nut Balls from Mel’s Healthy Kitchen

This recipe for coconut date nut balls reminds me of simpler days when I made these to sell to a local restaurant. The words easy, delicious and healthy were never truer.

Chewy No-Bake Nutter Butter Bars from Picky Palate

These contain peanuts (warning to all with peanut allergies) and are made with store bought nutter-butter cookies, but this recipe is quick and easy and not to be forgotten.

Making these easy treats might give you more time to get caught up on the laundry! This ebook has great tips that will make that chore easier too: Taming the Laundry Monster (The Busy Mom's Guide).

Dipped Fruit from Very Best Baking by Nestle Toll House

This recipe is so easy yet the result is so elegant that we’ll all be making chocolate dipped fruit for lots of occasions.

There you have it, lots of treats that don’t require hours of prep time, messy mixing and baking in a hot oven. Getting in and out of the kitchen quickly and producing quality food while still having time to share with the family is what I call successful cooking.

    Thanks for mentioning my No-Bake Oatmeal Raisin Carrot Cake Bites.

    And I’ve seen Jenny’s nutter butter bars many times on her site and have always wanted to try them. I have nutter butter bars that I make too…b/c I am a nutter butter fiend :)
