These yummy bars are full of flavor, from deep rich chocolate to a warm pumpkin spice with a crunch. I know what you thinking, pumpkin spice in July? But really, isn’t pumpkin spice good all year round??? We think so. These little bars work great for breakfast but also make a healthy snack to take on the go.
