Chocolate-Coated Pecan Bars

I wanted to mix things up a little this week (literally!) with a fun, no-bake recipe that’s so easy to make! I’m loving creating videos on wellness and mindset – but sometimes, you just need a yummy, better-for-you treat, that’s satisfying and nutritious.

Side note: apparently there is…
