I hope your week is going well! I have vacations on the brain lately… after sharing the resistance band workout last week, I was gathering some snacks for our beach trip last weekend and wanted to share two new ones with you.
This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of OneBar.
I’m hitting the third trimester sweets cravings- I cannot get enough fruit or chocolate. I’m limiting the chocolate, but this is an amazing time of year for fresh fruit!
I recently came across the One Bar, have you tried these?
It’s one delicious serving of fruit with no added sugars, colors or artificial sweeteners. For example, the ingredient list for the mango bar is: dried mango, dried pear, apple juice concentrate, inolin fiber and baobab superfruit.
Baobab is a powerful super fruit, packed with nutrition- it has six times the amount of potassium as a banana, one of the few plant sources of dietary calcium, and is high in Vitamin C, fiber and magnesium.
I love that baobab is used in these.
And there are only 70 calories per bar. It’s easy for me (or my four year old) to overdo the handfuls of dried fruit, so a portioned package is a plus. A perfect snack for a beach weekend away.
The other snack I packed was to help satisfy the chocolate cravings. These are gluten and dairy free, with a good about of protein and healthy fat.
No Bake Chocolate Almond Balls
- 3 Tbsp melted coconut oil
- 3 Tbsp honey
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 3/4 c. almond meal (flour)
- 1/4 c. flaxseed, ground
- 1/4 c. chocolate protein powder or additional almond meal
- optional tsp of water or almond milk
- 1/3 c. mini dark chocolate chips
Melt the coconut oil in a bowl and stir in the honey and vanilla to combine well. Add the almond meal, flax and protein powder and mix until a sticky dough forms. Add a tsp of water or almond milk if needed to help hold the batter together. Stir in dark chocolate chips and form into small balls. Refrigerate and enjoy!
Although I can’t giveaway the Dark Chocolate balls, I can offer you three boxes of OneBar to try! The winner will receive one of each flavor: Chery, Mango and Apple. Use the rafflecopter below to enter.
