It’s not necessary to use additional sweetener, especially if you plan on topping these with chocolate. If you’re not using a chocolate topping, taste the batter add a few liquid stevia drops or raw stevia if you’d like to sweeten it up a bit. The bars aren’t super sweet but the bits of dates and banana do add a nice sweetness throughout. I add 2 packets of stevia when I make them even if I’m topping with chocolate. Up to you!

These can be frozen and taken out as needed. Try them heated up, YUM!!
