Trail Mix Bars

Another healthy recipe coming your way. I am the queen of the Luna Bar, Kind Bar, and all those other pricey nutty protein bars, but I knew that I could bake something just as delicious. These Trail Mix Bars are filled with the good stuff: walnuts, flax and sunflower seeds, oats, dried fruit, agave nectar, and for the sweet tooth–dark chocolate. Rich in Omega 3 fatty acids, antioxidants, fiber, and whole grains; this snack is something you can feel good about eating and are super tasty too! WW guys and gals, this Skinny Style recipe is coming in at only 3 points plus a bar….Woo Hoo!!!!
