Mudpies ~ Easy No-Bake Cookies Recipe

Mudpies ~ Easy No-Bake Cookies Recipe

I am a firm believer in hands-on play time and letting kids get dirty. Around here we spend as much time outdoors as possible exploring and imagining. I have a 3 year old boy so we do a lot of playing with dirt, mud, rocks and trucks. My son also loves helping me hands-on in the kitchen, which is a different mind of mess. We love making these healthier, easy no-bake cookies that we like to call “Mudpies” for a fun dirt-themed treat that is refined sugar-free and dairy-free!
