No-Bake Chocolate Hazelnut Energy Bars

Hazelnuts are in my mind one of the most perfect nuts. It’s probably the reason that even as a child I loved all things chocolate and hazelnut.

Nutella, pralines etc. I thought that living in Europe must be pretty awesome seeing as all your chocolate would taste of hazelnuts!

At Christmas I would go for the hazelnuts before any other nuts – brazil nuts made a fairly close second but nothing beat out hazelnuts.

Of course back then the only thing that I thought about was just how good they tasted. An eight year old rarely stops to consider the nutritional value of their food.

The whole concept of food being good or bad for you is kind of alien – why, after all, would there be food on the planet that wasn’t good for you.

When I finally realised that this was the case you can’t imagine my excitement that hazelnuts did not hit that ‘it must be bad for you it tastes so good’ list.

What’s more, by having such an incredible taste themselves, they make it easy to create awesome recipes that taste even better than their unhealthy counterparts – for example hazelnut chocolate spread (yep – still a favourite of mine!!!!)
