They’re easy, healthy and dairy-free. Just make sure you get a good source of coconut oil (preferably organic) and unsweetened cocoa powder cos otherwise that stuff is just all sugar.

  1. Ahhhhh. Memory lane. Reminds me of the little CHUNKY bars I loved as a child when I went tot he movies, with nuts and raisins (tellin’ my age there) Wonder if they still make those. I’ll definitely try these!

  2. i used to eat the G&B 70% dark chocolate until I discovered it had soya lecithin in it…so I changed to the 85%, which doesnt. I reckon these are just as good though, and might add a little lucuma powder as well, yum!
