Good morning! Hope you all are having a lovely Saturday so far. I’m dropping in to let you know about something magical today (and no its not my new plant Spuds, even though I am quite smitten with him). It’s chocolate. It’s a superfood. It’s in these snack bars – which if I may say (and I can cause no one is here to really stop me…) are the best snack bars I have ever created or purchased. I am so over the moon about these they make me want to do a happy dance in my kitchen every time I have one. They are a perfect balance of bitter and sweet with the mixture of sesame seed butter and raw honey. A generous pinch of good quality pink salt (or sea salt) gives them a salty sweet that is undeniable. Plus they are chewy, you know, like those Quaker chewy bars we grew up on in our lunch sacks? THAT kind of chewy. With a great CRUNCH too thanks to all the yummy sesame seeds. And hello there is chocolate, good-for-you chocolate! Thanks to the incredible people over at ALOHA who make some of my favorite superfood products. I use their superfood powders, and now this chocolate, daily and feel so amazing. All of their products are raw, vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, preservative free, sustainably harvested and packaged, packed with nutrients from superfood greens, full of antioxidants, and made from only organic, real food.
Which gets me even more excited to say that I am now a new recipe contributor over on their site (*insert happy dance*) and am stoked to have this chewy, sweet, salty, crunchy, superfood chocolate snack square be my first of many new recipes I will develop using their stellar products. (Click for recipe.)
I have a list of some great links for you to peruse this morning (below). Make sure to give that last song a listen – Scott and I cannot stop dancing to it around the house this week (there’s a visual for ya).
*Although I am now a recipe contributor for ALOHA and received these products as a gift from them, it in no way influences how I feel about this company. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and I personally believe ALOHA rocks.
Hop on over to ALOHA to get my recipe for these superfood chocolate sesame snack squares! (click here)
