Summer is among us and with the weather getting hotter none of us wish to spend time in the kitchen, next to a hot stove or baking something in the oven. But it doesn’t mean we don’t want to enjoy tasty foods. Well there’s an easy cure to this problem — no bake bars. These take very little time to create, they’re really wonderful and you don’t even need to turn on your oven to cook them.
1. Sweet-and-Salty Cereal Bars
These sweet and salty cereal bars take only 5 minutes to produce and only require you to microwave and mix the ingredients that you probably already have in your cupboards. And the best part is that you can substitute components for your favorite cereals.
2. S’mores Bars
What do you connect smores with? When most people hear the word they immediately think – campfire. But you can easily make smores bars without a fire of any kind, and these bars combine two of our favorite treats – smores and cookie dough.
3. Chocolate Oatmeal Bars
This recipe asks for melting ingredients on the stovetop, but you can also do that in a microwave. Either way the outcome is wonderful, sweet and decadent chocolate oatmeal bars that you can store in the fridge and enjoy all week long.
4. After Dinner Mint Bars
If you appreciate treats that are both sweet and fulfilling yet oddly refreshing – you will love these minty chocolate bars. They’re a nice little treat to have after dinner. They taste pretty similar to those “after 8” thin chocolates, but even better.

Baking food on a hot summer’s day isn’t the best way to spend your time, but whipping up some cookie dough bars can be a very nice idea. These are egg-free so you don’t have to worry about catching salmonella, and they’re pink! What’s not to like?
