If you can make this recipe and then only eat ONE piece, you are a magical, magical person and you deserve lots of medals for having the upmost self control. I had to ask my boyfriend to hide these from me after I ate half of the pan.  Is this what crack is like?

There are so many substitutions for this recipe so if there are any I that I missed, just leave a comment and I will reply asap.

    Topping
  • 1 tbsp. cocao nibs

Notes

*macros counted when cutting bars into 20 pieces **agave can be replaced with a sugar free syrup, honey, maple or brown rice syrup ***can replace protein powder for oat flour ****can replace powdered peanut butter for oat flour
