I’m a sucker for cacao-anything, so when I recently gave Suncore Foods amazing cacao nibs a try I was over the moon about their larger size and oh so perfect texture. Top notch they are! And a great inspiration for this creation . . .

Cacao nibs are:

Quite amazing little superfood morsels they are, eh? Now onto those bars . . .

These decadent Gluten-Free Cacao Nib Brownie Bars flavored with chai spices remind me of brownies and cake bars wrapped into one; hence their name. They are super quick and easy to throw together whenever you are in need of a treat and have just the right amount of sweetness, in my opinion. They are both dense and fluffy at the same time (truly!) and have such a nice little bite from the cacao nibs. All in all, they make a fun little dessert that is enjoyable any time of day.

Enjoy. xo.
