Today was Day #6 of Chocolate, Grains and Grasses Theme Week, with a focus on alternatives to wheat, barley and other gluten-containing grains.

Hu Kitchen (New York, NY) is an eatery specializing in less processed foods; and they make chocolate bars with no refined or cane sugar. They also minimize the use of grains. Today's Almond Butter + Puffed Quinoa Chocolate Bar was lightly sweetened with coconut palm sugar. No overly sweet sugar taste or sugar buzz. That was refreshing and wonderful.

This 4-ingredient*, vegan and "primal" 72% cacao dark bar was filled with almond butter, and contained no gluten, no emulsifiers or soy lecithin, and "No GMO."

*The 4 ingredients in this bar were: cacao, almonds, organic puffed quinoa and organic coconut sugar.
