Raw Cashew Chocolate Breakfast Bars (gluten-free, grain-free, vegan, paleo)
A healthy and delicious breakfast or afternoon snack!
This is one of those recipes that has been on my “to-do” list FOREVER! I have made so many variations of this recipe, but this is the basic go-to. It is so simple and so delicious – my kids love them and so does my husband – and they are nice to just have around for a little snack or if I am in rush out the door in the morning.
You can add additional flavors (I mean… what would happen if you added some pumpkin spice?!?) or you can add some of your favorite protein powder – whatever you guys want!
I just have to recommend that you use this Creamy Roasted Cinnamon Cashew Butter for the recipe – that’s what I used and it was AMAZING!!!
Also, for the chocolate – go for the good stuff – it will be worth it. Right now I am kind of obsessed with this Loving Earth chocolate – the ingredients are so awesome.
Hope you guys like them – let me know what you think or if you change up the flavors at all!Print
