Pomagranite Bliss Bars

Happy Friday! 🙂 It feels like forever since I have made dessert…..it’s actually only been two weeks. 😉 Oh how I have missed my sweet treats. This dessert is totally healthy and guilt free, there is no wheat, no dairy and no sugar in these bars! I must give credit where credit is due. I have been following Secret Squirrel Food on her blog  for a while now and she knows how to make a mean clean dessert. I was inspired by her fig and coconut slices, they just looked so darn beautiful. If only figs were in season right now…….. I made my own version of her recipe and I think it turned out pretty well. I hope you all have an amazing weekend. I am heading to the gluten free convention, so stay tuned for my blog post with all the details.
