Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Most of the time, low carb desserts don't do a whole lot for me. My friend Teresa Pongratz and I trade low carb recipes, and sometimes even share things we've made. One day, Teresa walked in with this large bar and put it on my desk. She had made these bars and was so thrilled with the result. I ate it for my morning snack, and I was blown away, they were that good. I don't bake, and I went home and made some for myself that night. They make a huge pan, and are great and filling. I'll be making them again!

Serves 20. Each serving has 7.14 g NET CARBS. (it's pretty rich so you can get more like 24 servings out of this, if you cut them a bit smaller).
