The lovely people at Nakd (as opposed to the lovely Nakd people, because that might just be something entirely different) sent me a variety of different bars to try. They are gluten, wheat and dairy free, so were a staple in our house anyway - great for lunchboxes and hungry toddler snacks.
So let's focus on the important bit... how to get a free one. It's simple. Just fill in this form, and you'll be emailed a voucher which you can then print and exchange for a free bar - yum! The giveaway is open until Sunday, or whenever the supplies run out - and I kid you not when I say that they are literally giving away thousands.
Now back to the recipe. As well as being super snack material, I think that Nakd bars are a fantastic baking ingredient - they bring lovely flavours and a great fudgy texture to a whole range of bakes and cakes.
Or indeed apples.

Cashew Cookie Baked Apples (Serves 2)
2 eating apples
2 squares of tinfoil
1 Nakd Cashew Cookie Bar
A drizzle of cream of your choice - ours was soya
Preheat the oven to 180C (Fan 160C).
|Corer - check; Nakd bar - check|
|These apples are apparently not speaking to each other...|
Set an apple on each piece of foil and fill the hole of each with half of the chopped Nakd bar pieces.
|Stuffed and ready for wrapping and baking|
Bake for around 30 mins until the apple is soft.

Mini-M loved this, and in typical contrary toddler style, asked for a spoon since I had forgotten, then when I brought one, ate it with her fingers anyway.
I love the fact that it feels like a proper hot pudding, but has no added refined sugar at all - one little bit less parenting guilt for the day.
And on the themes of a) toddler puddings, b) apples and c) Nakd bars, Mini-M was also a big fan of Apple Pie Nakd Oat Bar bar chopped up and sprinkled on top of soya yoghurt.
