Dark Choc Salted Peanut Butter Bites
Though she be little, she be fierce! This wee beauty tastes pretty similar to more well known chocolate peanut butter treats, but way better tasting in my opinion and of course nutritional benefits. This recipe is simple, delicious... and rather addictive (you have been warned).
In eating these, you'll be treating yourself, but also getting a hit of the following:
Medjool Dates: magnesium, fibre, B complex, potassium, copper
Grass Fed Butter: Vitamins A, E and K, antioxidants
Peanut Butter: protein, potassium, fibre, magnesium
Sea Salt: trace minerals and electrolytes
Hulled hemp seeds: digestible protein, omega fatty acids
I'm not sure even sure I can call this a recipe it's so simple but here you go anyway!
