These Chocolate Nut Butter Crispy Treats are not on any “clean eating” plan, but are super yummy and easy to make. A delightful sweet snack on occasion! A couple of substitutes can make this candy lower in carbs and calories
Switch out stevia + butter or liquid monk fruit sugar for the honey, and sugar-free nut butters for the peanut butter. If trading the peanut butter for a sugar-free substitute, taste the batch before spreading in the pan to be sure it’s sweet enough.
