Healing hormones naturally? Yes, of course you can. Those chocolate orange snack bars are packed with ingredients that are perfect to balance your hormones.

I love eating these bars as a sweet dessert in the evening cause the fat fills me up while the chocolate layer which is made with yacon syrup* (lower glycemic sweetener and very good for your gut health, too) tastes even better than a piece of chocolate.
