Cacao Nibs (raw, organic) - 300g
Cacao Nibs are the real stuff when it comes to chocolate! (see recipe below). They are just cacao beans that manufacturers chop up into small pieces. They’re like chocolate chips, but a little less sweet, without all the added sugars and artificial sweeteners. You still get all the nutrients and antioxidant power of cacao beans. You can munch on these all by themselves, add them to a homemade Paleo trail mix, or use them like you would chocolate chips.

If you are feeling decadent you can even add them to your morning cereal! All it takes is a little inspiration and you will have that great chocolate hit with a whole heap of benefits.
