Hazelnut & Rice Protein Squares

HazelAnother hour, another snack.  With 3 boys in the house, its no wonder I am on a constant search for new healthy snacking options.  This is just another one of my creations I thought I would share with you.

Hazelnuts:One of the only nut exceptionally high in folates, so preggie mums, eat away!  They also contain a range of B vitamins, Vitamin E and numerous minerals including iron, copper, magnesium, manganese, zinc and calcium. And, they taste awesome.

Rice Protein: This is a concentrated form of protein (about 80%) and is very easily digested and absorbed.  I usually recommend using Rice Protein, Soy Protein & Hemp Protein.  I also recommend using a variety of proteins.  My morning smoothie Protein is a mix of unflavoured Soy Isolate and Fermented Rice Protein.
