Almond Butter Nutri-Brex Chocolate Bites

Not only do these truffle like bites taste great they also pack a punch on the nutrients making these a great treat when you want something sweet. Created by Ceri Jones from Natural Kitchen Adventures for Nutri-Brex as part of the launch for their new product, Coconut & crispy rice Nutri-Brex.

Almond butter is a great addition to any recipe (make sure that you use one that contains just nuts and has no added salt.) due to its lack of carbs and abundance of protein and healthy fat. Its also a very good source of fibre. Dates are also used in this recipe which are rich in many vital nutrients  promoting brain, heart and digestive health. When I made these I used raw cacao in place of cocoa powder to add extra antioxidants into the mix but cocoa powder works perfect.
