Nougat is texture heaven being simultaneously chewy and crunchy. While it’s generally known for being sugar-laden, this version is protein-packed with nuts, almond and peanut butter. Plus, it contains the natural fibres and sweetness from dates. Nougat is delicious and sweet that the kids and you will love as a healthy snack.
