Can you believe today’s snack doesn’t have an apple in it? There have been so many lately but I’m deviating a little today. I wanted to revisit ants on a log.
I can relate to afternoon slumps at work though. Two and three o’clock hits and you’re ready to put the coffee on again or go for a walk outside.
These babies are the perfect answer to the afternoon slump. They provide a nice source of protein via peanut butter, a little sugar from the chocolate chips and raisins, and caffeine/rocket fuel from the cacao nibs.
Cacao nibs are crumbled from whole cacao beans that have been peeled. They are the ultimate dark chocolate chip. They have a coffee chocolate flavor in my opinion and are great sprinkled on snacks like this, oatmeal or smoothies and even blended in smoothies. Nibs are a rich source of vitamins, minerals, fiber and antioxidants.
