  • a great one to save for when my teen is not here and we can eat nuts in the house.


  • Love a good nutty treat and this slice looks chunky and delicious.


  • my husband loves nut bars but he is so fussy, having your recipe now I should be able to create exactly what he wants – so thank you very much for sharing I appreciate it.

    • My favourite thing to do when cooking is to play with recipes and personalise them – such fun!


  • It’s always nice to make your own nuts bars. Lovely!
