Nutty Nourish Bars
A snack shouldn’t just taste great, it should nourish you and provide ample energy to continue your daily tasks. Sometimes we just need a little pick-me-up in the form of coco-nutty chocolate goodness. A release of endorphins and we are on our way to tackle the rest of the day. These Nutty Nourish Bars provide just that; brain charging fats, protein, and excellent minerals and antioxidants from dark chocolate.
