Chocolate Nib Seed Bars

Chocolate Nib Seed Bars are the perfect nutritious treat. These seed bars are an excellent source of energy and nutrition. This is a wonderful way to treat both children and adults alike. The xylitol adds a wonderful sweet flavour and the cocoa nibs gives these bars an amazing crunch and texture. Use all the seeds and nuts that you like and turn this into you own signature dish.

“I have sourced and used Cocoa powder, cocoa nibs and Sugar Free Dark Chocolate from Coco Fair In Cape Town. Check them out at http://www.cocoafair.com for online orders.”
