Healthy Minty Nutella Protein Cake Bites


Yes we said it, but no there is NO Nutella in this recipe – although it does taste a hell of a lot like the good stuff so who’s complaining? Made with our fabulous Mint Cashew & Almond Butter and raw cacao powder these protein bites are super chocolatey – ideal for all chocolate and health lovers!
