These delicious chewy chocolate nut bars were made out of necessity. I’ve vowed to stay sugar-free so… only natural sugars will do! Sugar-free, no artificial ingredient, and only whole foods were the goal and these have got the thumbs up from my teenager. Make them with your children as they are a no-bake version, have a baking day!
I’ve been sugar-free for 2 months and I feel great for it. If you are looking to go down the same road then these yummy chocolate nut bars will definitely fill that place in your fridge. No kidding, in all honesty, I’ve not succumbed to the lure of refined sugar for 2 months. But… a girl needs alternatives for those times when only chocolate will do! I’ve got a studying teenager who is trying to follow my goal so I came up with this healthier version of the nut bars out there in the shops.
Super Easy with only 5 ingredients
These are super easy to make with only a few ingredients and makes a good batch of 12 bars or 36 bite-size nibbles. Try freezing them if you’re watching your weight and only need them occasionally. They are full of nutrients ( zinc iron and magnesium) from the organic cocoa power. The protein from the cashew nuts will keep you full for longer and dates are your powerhouse sunnah vitamin pill. The perfect snack on the go and not full of empty calories. You know you’re giving your body something good to fuel it!
I tend to keep them for treat days, eating everything in moderation is my moto. Cutting them into bite size chunks makes them go a long way, they are really satisfying. The best part is I don’t feel guilty indulging in something sweet every now and then! Compare these to nut bars containing refined sugar, you’ll find you don’t get the craving to have more. One small bar is very filling. The chewy chocolaty texture is indulgent and is best when you get them straight out of the fridge. If you are planning to keep them in the freezer, wrap them individually in greaseproof paper and then pack them in a sealed tub. Both children and adults will love them!
