Paleo Baklava Bars | Recipe Wednesday

You guys, it’s no secret I love dessert. Like, give me ALL THE SWEET THINGS, ALL THE TIME. But, it’s also no secret that I’ve got goals. Sugar and mystery ingredients aren’t exactly things I want to be putting in my body on the daily. So, you can see how this could become quite a predicament. But, for this problem, there is a beautiful, beautiful solution. Honey and almond flour…making Paleo desserts yummy since, well, I don’t know when. But, regardless of when those nectar-of-Heaven ingredients showed up on the scene, I am thankful.

So, with a little searching online, I stumbled upon a recipe for some pretty simple Baklava bars. Elle and I threw on our aprons, rolled up our sleeves and got to work…for all of about 30 minutes. You guys, this recipe is super easy and super yum. Enjoy, my friends!
