Chocolate Bites Delight
Most fats are made up of fatty acids linked together in relatively long chains and are stored in our bodies for energy later. (Fat is basically stored energy in our bodies) So, most oils are fat stored in our bodies. Coconut Oil on the other hand is a shorter molecule known as a medium chained molecule. Coconut oil provides the body with an energy source instead of carbohydrates and can boost energy, while decreasing cravings for carbohydrates and sweets. It is known to stimulate metabolism, improve digestion, and release fat cells. It also gently stimulates the thyroid. Although coconut oil is good for us, we do need to limit our daily consumption so be careful, these little candies are delicious! Tip: Double the recipe 🙂
4 Tbsp coconut oil
1 square unsweetened chocolate
1/2 Tbsp. Carab powder (a lot less bitter than cocoa)
1 Tbsp. peanut butter
1/4-1/2 c. chopped raw nuts (I used almonds and mac nuts)
1 Tbsp. coconut flakes (optional)
1/2 tsp. organic vanilla flavoring
1/2 tsp. liquid stevia
Melt coconut oil and chocolate in a small saucepan. In a separate bowl, mix rest of ingredients and then add the melted chocolate mixture. Place into a candy mold, candy papers, or ice cube tray and pop them in the freezer.
