I am so excited to bring you today’s recipe in partnership with my friends at Nuts.com. Their spices are incredibly fresh and tasty, and combined together makes these chai-spiced bars my absolute FAVORITE. You get nice size, re-sealable bags which are perfect for stocking your pantry and assuring that you don’t run out! Plus their vanilla bean (used in the glaze) is a great value!

Notes

I like to cook these for 10 minutes as I like them slightly undercooked. Set your timer for 10 minutes, then add time as desired.

  1. These look great! Do you have suggestions on substituting any of the flours? I know they are meant to be gluten and paleo free but I don’t follow a strict diet. Thanks!
