18 of the Best No-Bake Bar Recipes
It’s approaching: That time of year when the thought of turning the oven on leaves us hot under the collar (literally). But what good would summertime be without sweet treats? We’re all about no-bake when it comes to cakes and truffles, but this time we’ve compiled a list of 18 yummy bars that will leave you glowing with pride, not with perspiration.
2. Toasted Coconut Bars: Fact: Toasted coconut makes everything delicious, which is why we can’t say no to these yummy bars made with cashews, dates and, of course, toasted coconut. (via Savory Simple)
7. Lemon Curd Cheesecake Bars: Lemon curd and cheesecake are two of our favorite things, but we hate to slave over a hot oven or stove to enjoy them. These bars take out the hassle and are delectably delicious. (via Kitchen Confidante)
8. No Bake Oatmeal Breakfast Bars: Who has time to knock out a batch of breakfast bars in a hot oven each morning? Not us. These bars taste so much sweeter because they are no bake and super simple. (via Brit + Co)
17. Peanut Butter Trail Mix Bars: Who says you have to be outdoorsy to enjoy a trail mix bar? Not us. These peanut butter and cranberry ones are perfect for any type of snack emergency. (via Sally’s Baking Addiction)

Back in January, we introduced you to a feel-good cause to inspire your New Year's resolution: a walking challenge to help raise funds for the amazing cancer fighters at The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I took part in the challenge with the Brit + Co team and ended up walking 105+ miles in January — it was awesome.
This spring, there's a new challenge on the horizon, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Big Climb. The ask: On May 15, 2021, you can step up to take cancer down by committing to climb 1,311 steps, walking 3.2 miles, or doing 440 chair step-ups at home as part of the Big Climb. If you need some motivation to bring movement back into your daily routine — look no further!
As always, it's free to sign up, but climbers are encouraged to set a fundraising goal to help beat cancer. We'll be organizing another Brit + Co team to step up, and I hope you'll join us too! Keep scrolling for a peek at where I'll be completing the challenge in my Los Angeles neighborhood around the hidden Silver Lake Stairs. Happy climbing!
Never underestimate the power of an accountability buddy! I asked my in-laws, my partner, and a few friends to join me so we can keep each other motivated and accountable in completing the challenge — virtual high-fives all around! Also, my dog Fox is a great climber, too.
An aesthetically pleasing backdrop is a huge motivator for me! I'm fortunate to have all sorts of painted steps around my neighborhood to keep the challenge interesting, but you can also keep cool inside with at-home chair step-ups.
Don't forget to share your progress on social — #BigClimb!
Feel free to break the challenge up if you need to by tackling half the distance in the AM and half at sunset. Here's me 1,311 steps later and ready for a break — but, think I earned this one!
