Moringa Snack Bars are perfect for a quick bite as you run out the door or for a picnic in the park. Each bar has one serving of moringa which will give you a nutrient-dense energy boost. They get a chewy sweetness from dates and a satisfying crunch from raw cacao nibs, sunflower seeds and chia seeds.
