Sea Salt Reese's Bars with Natural Sweeteners
I love playing around with recipes to make them healthier, as most of you know if you've been around here a while. But I do not like using fake sweeteners in my recipes–no thanks on the Splenda or sugar alcohols like Xylitol. And I haven't experimented with alternative sweeteners like monk fruit, dates, Stevia, etc. I'd rather just use less of the natural sweeteners that I know will work (maple syrup and palm sugar are my favorites, and honey in some things) and then I'll eat less OF it too. Plus then I'm not taking the risk of wasting a bunch of expensive ingredients if it turns out bad, but these turned out really good!
Let me know if you try these Sea Salt Reese's Bars and tell me what you think!

Nut butter layer
- For the nut butter layer, melt butter in a small saucepan and while it’s still warm mix well with the other ingredients. Spread in a 9x13 pan (I like to put parchment in the bottom first but you don’t have to). Pop it into the freezer while you work on the chocolate layer.Melt all of the ingredients together for 1-2 minutes in the microwave or use a double boiler on the stove. Stir well until it's a nice smooth consistency then spread evenly onto the nut butter layer. Store in the refridgerator until serving.
