Who doesn’t love a sweet treat that is packed with nutrition!! These nut bars are a healthy version of those peanut butter bars I love!!!  Plus, it is another good use of that food processor and they come together super quick. I flip them over to cut them to avoid the chocolate cracking too much but I still run into trouble there at times. Will need to work on that, the key is not getting the chocolate too cold. Refrigerate when done!
Enjoy!!
