Friday's Fixin's: Chewy Toasted Pecan Bar


Recently a friend forwarded this recipe to me knowing how much I do love a good gluten-free, vegan snack.  Yes, I promise: delicious, gluten-free AND vegan CAN indeed be used in the same sentence. Trust me, after you eat these bars, you’ll understand why!

And of course, it’s easy peasy. Because you know that’s how I roll!

Betsy Markle of the Sunshine Wellness Institute was kind enough to allow me to share these with you.  Thank you, Betsy!

Hope you enjoy this Silver Lined treat.
