These no-bake treats are gluten-free, vegan and easy to prepare. They also come together quickly, and have just five simple ingredients you probably already have in your pantry. Moist, chewy, and satisfying...admittedly, they border on being addicting. Other nuts would also work well in this recipe, but you really can't beat the combination of peanut butter and chocolate. Except maybe almonds and chocolate! Hmmm.
