If you have a sweet tooth like I do, then this recipe will be your savior. I’ve had people say these taste better than the real thing…but these are healthy! Of course, everything in moderation (your mom hit the nail on the head with this). Enjoy 1-2 of these every day to kick that sugar craving and reap all the healthy goodness.
What makes homemade treats healthy?
It’s a true joy that a food so delicious is also good for you. The darker the chocolate, the better. Dark chocolate contains less sugar than milk and lots of awesome antioxidants and fiber, which keep you feeling healthy and full.
The beauty of this recipe is that you can use any nut butter you choose! Peanut butter is classic, but try it out with almond butter or even sun butter (made from sunflower seeds). With all the nut allergies these days, sun butter is your best bet if you’re making these for a school function or a bake sale. Nut butter provides healthy fats and protein, which keep us fueled and full throughout the day.
So who’s ready to make some sweet treats?
12 ounces (2 cups) dark chocolate chips (65% or higher cacao)
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 cup nut butter (you choose which kind!)
3 tablespoons vanilla protein powder
(makes approximately 24 mini cups)
