Healthy Homemade Choc Protein Snack Bars

Healthy Choc Protein Bars
In my bid to have a healthier diet and cut out sugar, I’ve been trying to introduce alternatives that don’t taste like cardboard. And so came this recipe for healthy choc protein snack bars.

I’ve made it twice now and it doesn’t last long. It actually reminds me of the taste and texture of good old chocolate crackles, but it’s way healthier, more delicious and completely guilt free!
