integrating nutrition, fitness, sprituality, conscious living, and a little sass
Oh my goodness, I must admit that I am completely obsessed with this recipe. I had to take it twice this week to ‘taste test’ it and make sure that it was perfect before I shared it with you all…pretty sure it was perfect the first time, but I’ll take any excuse to make another batch. Especially considering it hasn’t been lasting long, oops!
Not only is this treat absolutely delicious, but it is full of awesome ingredients that have many health benefits…and it’s CHOCOLATE!
Grabbing a square of this chocolate will give you wonderful essential fatty acids from the coconut oil, coconut milk, and coconut flakes! In fact, I would say these healthy fats are a necessary part of your day, so why not eat these healthy fats in chocolate form, right?!
While the healthy fats make up a huge part of this recipe, there are also some other shining stars, like cacao! Raw cacao has been touted for its immune boosting benefits and antioxidant properties. Raw cacao has almost 5 times more antioxidant activity when compared with roasted cocoa, making it superior in its health benefits.
Chocolate is also said to help boost metabolism, be beneficial to your heart by regulating blood cholesterol, contain beneficial fiber, and contain many important minerals.
If that’s not enough…chocolate actually makes you feel good! It contains the neurotransmitters dopamine and phenylethylamine, which not only boost your mood, but also give you energy, increase mental alertness, and aid in weight loss.
You will become just as obsessed with this recipe as we are…so get your ingredients and TRY THIS OUT NOW!!
