  6. Allow to cool for about 10 min, cut into 6 even bars wrapping them in parchment paper after completely cooled. Store in fridge.
  7. When ready to eat heat for 20-30 seconds and slather almond butter on top and enjoy!

These can also be enjoyed cold but I love them a bit warm which helps the almond butter to melt over in nicely! These are an amazing quick go to! Recipe adapted from Joy Food Sunshine.
