Guess what friends?! Thanksgiving is in 3 days... does it feel like it? Nope! Does it look like it? Nope! Is it still 2020? Yep! Look... this year has been a doozy to say the least, but the most important thing is that we keep showing up.... showing up so we can enjoy delicious desserts and even more delicious clean treats. Now I’m obviously a dessert buff... but that’s okay because I’m not sorry, and you won’t be either after you make these bars... these are: clean, easy, kind of quick? And would go down an absolute treat with a scoop of ice cream or oh my gosh, crumbled up on the top of the scoop of ice cream with the caramel sawse. Now we’re really talking....
These aren’t: heavy, sickeningly sweet, heavily processed.
