Healthier Almond Joy Bar Recipe

I am in love with the Healthy Fudge I posted about a week ago!  I can think of so many different ways I can use that recipe in different variations and different applications.  The very first thing that came to my mind after tasting my recipe last week was to make a Healthier Almond Joy Bar Recipe.  The coconut oil is the perfect base to make this treat fabulous!

This recipe is so easy and is so good!  While the ingredients are much healthier than most recipes, remember oil is oil and is still a fat – so eat it in moderation.  Also- honey is a natural sugar, same goes – eat in moderation!  Enjoy!

  1. An interesting discussion is worth comment.
    I think that you need to write more on this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not talk about such issues.

    To the next! Kind regards!!
