White Choco-Chip Butternut Squares

Ever since Tina posted a recipe for Butternut White Chocolate Chip Bars on November 1st, I’ve been anxious to take a crack at her recipe. I finally had the free time and all of the necessary ingredients for the recipe, so I used my night off from P90X to bake this dessert bar last night. I stuck to Tina’s recipe for the most part but substituted the honey for maple syrup and doubled the amount of cinnamon since I was out of nutmeg.

All I have to say is that I hate myself for waiting 13 days to make it! These bars were chewy, sweet and didn’t even taste “healthy.” I felt good knowing that I was eating a healthy dessert when I more so felt like I was truly indulging.
