Chocolate Hemp BarsNuts, chocolate, hemp and dates with some freeze-dried raspberries for good measure. It's both a visual treat and a treat for your taste-buds.

Claire’s Cacao and Chia AmazeballsFor Claire, Lent has always been an important part of the calendar. She has memories of her Grandma Ann immersed in the church community and according to Claire "she loved to bake, yet she always fasted from cakes, biscuits and the “sweet stuff” for 40 days and 40 nights during the Lenten period". These 100% homemade and 100% natural energy balls are great if you would like to remove refined sugar from your diet or just have less of it but still gain that 'sweet kick' in your day. The recipe below, Cacao and Chia, is one that is so easy to make for anyone to enjoy. To find out more visit: https://www.clairesamazeballs.com/
