Chocolate Salted Caramel Pretzel Bars 1

Happy Friday! I am very excited today because it is the 22nd of the month and that means it’s time to share another Recipe Redux challenge recipe!For those of you who aren’t familiar with Recipe Redux is the first and only recipe challenge founded by registered dietitians. The Recipe ReDux is focused on taking delicious dishes, keeping them delicious, but making them better for you. It was founded by 3 amazing dietitians with a belief that healthier eating should always taste delicious. And let me tell you, I totally agree! The amazing bloggers who participate in this have come up with so many delicious, yet healthy recipes! If you haven’t been to the Recipe ReDux site yet, definitely pop over and check it out! Plus you can check out the other recipes from this month below by scrolling below! There are tons of yummy ones! ? 

This month our challenge was to create a ‘bar’ or ‘bite’! The theme couldn’t be more perfect as we are heading into the back to school/back to work season and having healthy and yummy snacks on hand is needed! I knew I wanted to make something salty and sweet since that is one of my favorite combinations! I had just received some new peanut butter from Protein Plus PB to try and had also bought salted caramel almonds at Target the next day! It was a sign — I needed to make something with salted caramel! Thus, this recipe was born! :)

This bar recipe is not only easy, but it is packed with protein, requires no baking and is absolutely delicious! Just wrap them individually and grab one on your way out the door to class or work!  I hope you enjoy! Have a fabulous weekend!!
