Welcome to Day #2 of Chocolate, Fruit and Nut Theme Week.
I recently made a trip up to Portland, OR, and picked up a few fruit and nut items. Many of them contained, as you might expect from the Pacific Northwest, berries and hazelnuts--such as today's Nuts about Chocolate and Hazelnut energy ball, from Betty Lou's Inc. (McMinnville, OR).
This round patty-shaped energy bar had a slightly fudgey center (with ground nuts, seeds and a vegan (brown rice and pea) protein blend, and a subtle fruity sweetness (from fruit juice and dates).
And the entire exterior was coated with chopped hazelnut pieces.
The result was an energy ball with slightly chewy and nutty flavor. The added protein helped cut the sweetness found in many energy bar offerings.
This energy ball was "Non-GMO, Gluten Free, (and contained) 4 G Fiber, 8 G Protein."
This Betty Lou's product was bought at the very scenic Vista Point, Oregon.
