These bars are a snap to make, and provide an excellent source of protein and calcium.  They’re chewy, sweet and tart, and provide enough nutrition to grab as breakfast on the go.  They’re also a great energy bar to take along for an afternoon pick-me-up! Check the original post and recipe here.

Chocolate-Covered Caramels

Just because you can’t have milk or butter doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy rich, chewy caramels, studded with cashews, pecans or any other nut of your choice-and enrobed in dark chocolate.  Great for special occasions or gifts!
