Love Hormones. Heart Health. Delicious
Who doesn’t LOVE Nutella?
Eating well can not only be healthy, it can also be decadent.
Unsweetened cocoa powder blends perfectly with almond butter, pure maple syrup, and sea salt to achieve the perfect combination of sweet and chocolate.
The almond butter provides a healthy dose of protein and heart healthy fat. This is a perfect spread to smooth over a whole grain toast.
Added bonus? Eating cocoa powder (and dark chocolate) has been linked to increased oxytocin release, decrease in stress hormone levels and a lowered risk of cardio vascular disease.
