So tonight we made Grain Free Pumpkin Peanut Butter Bars. They turned out awesome and I couldnt take a photo fast enough so I will post what I have after we devoured a few;) These are not too sweet, full of flavor, and filling because of the yummy protein. A perfect after dinner treat, or morning breakfast snack! You can also add chocolate chips, chopped walnuts or pecans, or top with an icing…all would be yum!
