Raw cacao nut bars

August 8, 2017

Here is a recipe for you to try.  Test out these awesome slices for a treat. They are quite dense, so if you are trying to lose fat, make sure you take into account the macros (see below). But they are a great source of good fats, and a good low carb option as well.

The magic lies in roasting the nuts beforehand in the oven. It gives it that x factor. Don't skip that step. Trust me on this. (For my clients, one serving = 15g or one serving of fat)
