When my February edition of VegNews arrived I was more excited than normal to dive into plethora of amazing recipes and articles that VegNews never fails to deliver to its readers. Back in October I had the pleasure of photographing for February's I Want Candy article - the recipe was amazing and even more awesome was seeing the picture I shot and my name listed on the right hand corner of a VegNews magazine page!
The candy bars are super simple to make and I am sure the majority of you have all the ingredients to whip these up. After the holidays I am sure a "candy bar" is the last thing you want to see, read or eat, but this candy bar is special - full of heart healthy almonds, dates and maca dipped in a little or a lot of chocolate, it is a sweet treat you can feel good about indulging in. The magazine suggests for an all raw version simply omit the chocolate, however I do know Cara at Fork and Beans has an amazing Raw Chocolate recipe you could sub in for vegan chocolate chips.
For this amazing recipe and a whole lot of other amazing articles and information head over to VegNews for your copy today!
