This recipe is up there with my absolute faves, like my Raw Salted Caramel Slice (see blog below this one), it is sticky, sweet and even good for you. This recipe comes from one of my fave little NZ businesses, The Wholesome Co. They specialise in wholesome baking subscription mixes plus wellness tubs. I am a fan. Being that I have a sweet tooth, having some wholesome treats on hand is such a plus for me. This recipe is from her Wholesome Treats V2 ebook and she has kindly let me share with you all. I recommend making a batch and popping them in the freezer for when the sweet urge hits!
