I’m a firm believer in listening to your body’s cravings and satisfying them with something healthy that will fulfill the craving. Clients of mine are always asking for healthier chocolate options when their cravings hit. Finding a natural, nutritious option is always a challenge.
Well, I’ve just come up with a great option for that sweet tooth. The Jocolat Chocolate Hazelnut Bar by Larabar. I have tried Jocolat bars in the past, and was never very impressed. However, I decided to give this flavor a whirl, and guess what I LOVED it!
The ingredients are: organic dates, organic hazelnuts, organic almonds, organic cocoa powder, and organic cocoa mass
The nutrition facts are: 190 calories, 10 grams fat, 2 grams saturated fat, 26 grams carbohydrate, 5 grams fiber, and 4 grams protein. Providing 10% vitamin E, 10% phosphorus, 15% magnesium, and 15% copper.
This bar provides stellar nutrition while yielding a fabulous taste. A chocolate product with only 2 grams of saturated fat? And a filling 5 grams of fiber? Count me in!
Have you tried this product before? Do you have a favorite nutritious chocolatey treat?
