Choc Caramel Crunch Bars

It's so difficult finding a snack that tastes great, is full of healthy ingredients, AND is vegan. As if eating out isn't hard enough, when we feel like a snack we have to settle for whatever spinach scraps we can find by the bin. If you, like me, don't particularly like eating by the bin, then this recipe is for you. It's crunchy, sweet, packed with wholesome ingredients, and perfect to share!
