They taste like you nut-ella-what, but better, and have the added beauty and bonus nutrients such as: magnesium in cacao, fibre in dates, plant proteins and healthy fats to satiate appetite in hazelnuts, and if you pop in some of your go-to protein powder you’re making them a skin loving, extra protein rich snack too.   CHOCOLATE HAZELNUT ..read more
