When you’ve got heaps of almond butter on your hands, you don’t take that stuff for granted. Instead, you turn it into something even more incredible, Such as almond butter bars.
Yeah, you heard that right, almond butter bars.
These Chocolate Almond Butter Bars are the hotter and better-looking sibling of classic peanut butter bars. Think classier, more refined, and sophisticated.
The bottom layer is smooth almond butter mixed with and shredded coconut while the top is just melted dark chocolate and almond butter. That’s it.
They are the sweetest, healthiest form of sin, the kind that will stop you in your tracks, no matter what you’re doing. So that you can take a moment to savor it and wonder how these bars can be so delicious but also vegan and paleo at the same time. Did I mention how easy these are to make? Thank you for this one, holisticallyengineered
