These are the best little energy boosts--plus they are decadent and delightful!
Sometimes you just need something sweet and yummy and these fill that craving perfectly. They are full of good things and no added sweeteners, so they are a guilt free pleasure! Great for on the go too!
I love raw organic cocoa powder. I mix it into my protein/spinach smoothies and I love it!
I even like a little on it's own...it's my favorite unsweetened very dark chocolate!
Medjool or Noor Dates, I made 2 batches and they are both phenomenal...about 1/2 cup
1/4 cup of oats
1/8 cup pumpkin seeds
1/8 cup cocoa powder
1/8 cup coconut flakes
(there are many alternatives, you could add chia seeds,
ground flax seeds, sunflower seeds, or any nuts!)
I wont tell you what I think they look like...
The dates form a sticky dough.
But just squeeze a little in your clean hands and form a ball.
If it's still too dry, add a teaspoon of water until it's moist enough to stick.
Works great--and tastes awesome!
This is a sweet alternative to a protein shake or granola bar!
And they look just like fancy truffles--that goes a long way in my mind!
There is no added sugar.
So your body can enjoy one and the benefits from one and not crave more.
I can eat one and feel satisfied eating a treat but not binging on a bag full.
Eating better is a way to reward your mind, body and spirit...by giving it what it actually needs!
