It’s nearly the weekend and I hope I get you inspired to get baking with these Almond Butter Crispy Chocolate Bars! Seriously, this recipe is really, really delicious!
This is a no-bake, gluten free and vegan slice. So this is going to appeal to so many of you, I hope! The base is a crunchy almond butter texture, really yummy, the topping a simple made from scratch soft chocolate topping. I usually go for the melted dark chocolate block but for this recipe, a softer chocolate topping is fantastic!
Are all those attributes enough to win you over? I bet they’re!
I’ve been snacking on this almond crispy slice all week, even choosing it over my carrot cake loaf I shared with you earlier in the week, hard to believe? Well once you get your hands on a slice of these bars, you will know exactly what I’m talking about! Ready to give it a try?
Hope you enjoy and have a wonderful weekend ahead!
