These may be the greatest things ever. They taste like brownies, but they are SO much better for you. One of my favourite snacks in Nakd Bars. They are made from purely fruit and nuts and there is no need to bake them, as they are cold pressed. At 70p/ US$1.09 a bar, I can’t afford to have them all the time, so I decided to experiment with an alternative and (even if I do say so myself), they are even better. They taste like a brownie/truffle bite of heaven and they are oh so chocolaty. The great this about them is that you can flavour them with whatever you like. I put ginger or orange in mine usually, but you could mix in some cinnamon or mint essence if you want (which I will be trying next time).
These will also last in the fridge for about a week. If you don’t eat them all before that, that is. If you try anything from this site, let it be this. A healthier alternative to a food you crave. These would also be amazing crumbled over some frozen yoghurt. Let me know what you think if (when) you make them. Enjoy!
