Ever since finding out that Maya can’t eat a LOT of foods, baking has become a lot harder…
BUT! My mom found this amazing Raw Almond Joy Bar recipe from Rawmazing , and it was a HIT with everyone!!
It’s SO hard to decipher recipes that LOOK good from bloggers, but…don’t really taste good. THESE TASTE AMAZING!!
GREAT for the holidays for those that are allergy challenged…or for special occasions 🙂
