Oh my! I made these exactly like the recipe - no changes - and they were fantastic! I took them to a ladies' potluck/fellowship night at our church and everyone loved them! Can't believe their guilt free! My husband really loved them too! Thank you soooooo much! We will be making these regularly! P.S. Although they are good with only a little chilling - they seem to taste even better after being chilled longer. If you can, chill for a few hours or overnight. If you can't do longer than 15 minutes, don't worry - they are still delicious!

Thank you! It was really nice eatting a dessert that was low carb and more importantly didn't taste low carb. I was really craving the spices and flavors of fall and this recipe really delivered for me. Instead of the recommended pan I used a 8x8 pan for fear that if I didn't the bar would be too thin. It still turned out great. I also added chopped walnuts after frosting as well. I highly recommend allowing this to cool off properly so that it doesn't taste overly like splenda. Just like spaghetti..this recipe kept getting better and better each day it sat in the fridge..which really wasn't long at all by the time we ended up finishing it off.
Thank you for sharing this recipe!

These are REALLY good. I was pleasantly surprised - especially the next day after the bars cooled overnight. Yum! Thanks so much for sharing. When factoring in the almond flour, a serving of 15 yielded 163 calories and 9 carbs each (according to MyFitnessPal recipe calculator. Thanks again!
