Chocolate Peanut Butter Energy Bars

Yes that title is a mouthful, but your mouth will be SO happy when you inhale one of these bars. Yes there are a lot of ingredients, but they are wholesome, filling and a healthier dessert option. I left off the chocolate drizzle because well lets be honest, I left it off because I was too lazy...there I said it. Either way I think you will love these. Enjoy!
