Here is an amazing treat you can take to your superbowl party today! Oh my goodness these are sweet, rich, chocolaty goodness that will curb any craving for chocolate you have, PLUS THEY ARE GOOD FOR YOU! What? I know, I know, amazing...
Soak 1 cup of raw cashews for at least 4 hours ( I just soak them overnight and make these in the morning.
one cup of dates ( potassium power-houses)
1 cup of cacao powder ( full of anti-oxidants)
1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
2 T pure maple syrup (full of minerals and anti-oxidants too) today I used one T of my coconut sugar instead as I am on a coconut kick
1 t. cinnamon
1/2 t. vanilla or almond or hazelnut extract
pinch of sea salt
pinch of cayenne
Note: I always just keep them in an airtight container in the freezer after initial freezing on the cookie sheet. This way when you kids or you are craving something sweet, they can be easily grabbed and devoured. who said eating healthy was boring?
