I’m a sucker for cacao-anything, so when I recently gave Suncore Foods amazing cacao nibs a try I was over the moon about their larger size and oh so perfect texture. Top-notch they are! And a great inspiration for this creation .

These decadent Gluten-Free Cacao Nib Brownie Bars flavored with chai spices remind me of brownies and cake bars wrapped into one; hence their name. They are super quick and easy to throw together whenever you need a treat and have just the right amount of sweetness, in my opinion. They are both dense and fluffy at the same time (truly!) and have such a nice little bite from the cacao nibs. They would be even more amazing served alongside an Iced Pumpkin Chai Latte! All in all, they make a fun little dessert that is enjoyable any time of day.
