Triple Layer Nutty Chocolate Bars – Vegan

Triple layer nutty chocolate bars. Yes, that’s right. These are pretty dang special, trust me. The base layer is just a simple layer of gooey rich chocolate, the middle layer is a smooth nutty extravaganza, and the top layer is a crunchy chocolate topping. When you combine them together you get pure nutty chocolate bliss.

I love making (and eating)  these. In fact, more of the batter probably went into my mouth than onto the plate. But I am totally okay with that and I hope that you are too. Eating “regular” (vegan) desserts filled with processed ingredients is okay to have every once in a while. But I don’t want dessert to be an every once in a while thing in my life. I deserve dessert each day, and so do you. That’s why I always get so excited about new recipes. It’s amazing what we’re able to create with simple whole ingredients and I’m so grateful for that. By eating a piece of this you are giving your body nourishment and energy. It tastes good and you’ll be able to feel good at the same time. Who wouldn’t want that?!
