The Made Simple range from New Zealand company Tasti are now in Australia.

The range are made with four key ingredients - dates, coconut, cacao powder and nuts (or peanut butter). There is no refined sugar, additives or preservatives. Made Simple features wholefood bars, protein bars and bite-sized balls.

Nicky Cummerfield from Tasti says the goal was to "strip our ingredients right back to basics".

The bars come in Lamington (roasted cashews and coconut) and Forest Fruit (includes dried cherries).

The protein bars are available in two flavours, Cacao Brownie and Peanut Butter and Berry. The bars are made from vegan-friendly soybeans and also include hemp seeds.

The balls are Berry Cacao, and Peanut Butter and Caramel.

They are in Woolworths stores now and retail for $5.50.
