We all want a nice treat every now and then…. and this one really isn’t the worst!
It’s so delicious and packed with fibre, good fats, Vitamin A and antioxidants! You’re either going to laugh or scream ‘Yuck’ when you see the first ingredient, but trust me they taste great! So I decided to bake these for the girls I work with to celebrate International Women’s Day!
Can I just take a moment to mention how cooooooooool this organic dark chocolate is… It has the weight printed on each piece!!!! I got it in Supervalu for €3:99 so great value too!
