Why I Love this recipe

This recipe is already vegan, but it can be easily madeBlondie Bars gluten-free by substituting normal oat flour for gluten-free oats. It is very simple to make, and still tastes great. They are soft and gooey! This recipe is inclusive to those with dietary restrictions and allergies, and any ingredients in this recipe can be swapped with a safer option, such as cashew butter swapped for sunflower butter. This recipe is also great because of how simple it is. It does not require any complicated steps that may be hard for some to do.
