These paleo bars look (and taste) better than any power bars you can find at the grocery store. Made with cashews, figs, coconut, and chocolate, these bars taste a bit like a Mounds candy bar. But, of course, they are way healthier. The figs and coconut create a chewy texture and sweet flavor combination. While the cashews provide healthy fats to make them filling.
