Combine antioxidant-rich dark chocolate, which can help fight inflammation and protect against certain diseases, with almonds, a food that contains a wealth of omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E, and you get the perfect afternoon snack: chocolate-covered almonds. One serving of these almonds has 230 calories, 4 grams of protein, iron, and calcium.
This better, healthier organic granola bar is made with whole grain rolled oats, brown rice, tapioca syrup, agave, and honey, with a few chocolate chips sprinkled throughout for good measure. One bar has just 100 calories and eight grams of sugar.
Take vitamin and antioxidant-rich dried blueberries, cherries, apricots, and strawberries, add a drizzle of chocolate and you get this fantastic dessert that has 190 calories per serving, as well as fiber and protein.
