Tasty Raw Bars

As a chocoloholic I’m always on the hunt for a little something sweet each day. Whether it be dark chocolate almonds, or my favorite Peanut Butter Energy bites I crave something to satisfy my sweet tooth. I first had these bars at Moveable Feist in Geneva and knew I had to recreate them on my own. After several attempts we perfected the recipe. The kids enjoy these too. It’s important to me that even when baking, the ingredients we use are healthy.  If anyone in your family has food senstivities or allergies you could swap peanut butter or sunflower seed butter for almond butter.

Put back in refrigerator for another 15 minutes or until chocolate hardens. Remove and cut into squares. Can’t eat them all or don’t want to share? I put the extra in ziploc bags and freeze for a later date.
