These bites are airy and light, not dense like the usual protein bar. ๐Ÿ˜ The salty cashew/coconut combo on the outside pairs deliciously with the sweet chocolate/pumpkin medley on the inside. ๐Ÿ˜‹ Pumpkin seeds and carob chips add the perfect crunch to these bites. These are the perfect post-dinner, post-workout or just middle of the day sweet treat! โค Try this out and you will not be disappointed, let me know what you think!
