Welcome to Day #5 of Chocolate and Hazelnut Theme Week.

Today's Chocolate Hazelnut Bar with Grass-Fed Collagen was created by Primal Kitchen (Oxnard, CA), and is part of the company's line of Collagen Nut and Seed bars developed by founder Mark Sisson.

In this refreshingly un-sugared* (thank you!) bar, unsweetened chocolate and organic fair-trade cacao powder were paired with a generous helping of pumpkin seeds, toasted hazelnuts and almonds, along with the aforementioned grass-fed collagen.

Why collagen? Collagen is an important protein in our body. It seems our ability to produce collagen diminishes with age; and there is evidence that ingesting collagen may help skin, hair and nails. (I can remember people drinking gelatin many years ago, hoping to achieve similar results.) Today's chocolate hazelnut nutrition bar seems like a tastier way to get your collagen.

*This Chocolate Hazelnut bar contained 3 grams of sugars (honey was #7 on the ingredient list); and total carbohydrate count was 13 grams (includes Cassava Root fiber).
