Nutty Bars = Perfect Snack

Nutty Bars are THE perfect snack when you need a protein-packed powerhouse snack mid-day. Other than the natural raw honey there is no sugar added and this recipe is perfect for anyone on a reduced sugar diet.

Gluten-Free and Sugar-Free!

Oh, did I mention they are also gluten-free and sugar-free?

Enjoy these yummy bars and be sure and share with any of your friends who are either trying to reduce their blood sugar levels or prefer to eat sugar-free! I made a batch the other day and put them in the freezer, just assuming my family would give them time to thaw out before the devoured them. Umm… wrong. I think they like them frozen almost as good as right out of the fridge!

These are guaranteed to be a BIG hit!
