Remember my fruit and nut bars that were features on Design*Sponge last year? Those have always been my go-to snack bar but I decided to change things up and try something different this time – with these peanut butter bars. I think next time I will use actual chocolate chips instead of cocoa nibs but another tasty alternative to buying bars at the grocery store for $2.50.
