Today was the last day of Chocolate and Gluten-Free Cookie Theme Week, and the beginning (Day #1) of Chocolate and Nibs Theme Week.
I love cacao nibs. Crunchy, nutty bits chocked full of the essence of cacao without the sugar. I wondered if that was why I was so pleasantly surprised by these gluten-free, vegan, Coconut and Cacao Nibs Biscolinos! from Raw Decadence (Redwood City, CA). Maybe.
Three other reasons why I liked these:
- The subdued sweetness of unsweetened coconut, and the use of agave and monk fruit as sweeteners instead of corn syrup and sugar
- The nutty flavor -- from ground California almonds
- The perfect hint of sea salt that balanced well with the nutty flavors, and helped counterbalance sweetness
