Easy Chocolate Protein Snacks

Healthy snacks

Back to school time is here. That means the need for healthy on the go snacks is a must. I am always on the lookout for high quality easy to use products. Today I share a recent favorite the new Once Again Amore Almond Spread. It is healthy chocolate goodness. To be honest I could just eat it with a spoon but I did create a new family favorite healthy snack with it too. Truly the entire line of Once Again nut butter products is delicious and is worth trying out.

What I love most about these products is not only are they made with high quality ingredients, that is a given for anything I share. I love their business. The employee owned cooperative is committed to sustainability and integrity. They support organic and sustainable farming methods and the power of community. Companies like this make me happy to buy their products. I know I am not just purchasing taste and quality for my family but supporting other families and the environment a well. Because of this I feel good about spending my money and the products I consume.
