Ever feel like you need a pick-me-up at 3pm, or just a wee something to keep you going in-between meals? You know when you get that craving that nothing but chocolate will do? Well these chocolate fat bombs are for you! This recipe is choc-o-block full of healthy, nutrient-rich ingredients that will nourish your body rather than deplete it. I would be careful who you share them with though... If you are anything like me, I have to lock mine up away from my partner or they will be gone the next day!

Using raw cacao or dutch cocoa in this recipe is a great way to get a hit of magnesium and anti-oxidants that will leave you feeling brighter almost immediately (and did I mention 100% guilt-free!). If you don't have any almond butter on hand, you can always use cashew butter, macadamia butter or just double the tahini.

 

INGREDIENTS 

1/2 cup tahini

1/2 cup almond butter

1 cup butter

1 tbsp raw honey

3-4 tbsp of raw cacao (or dutch cocoa)

 

Method

  • Melt butter in a small saucepan over low heat.
  • Once melted, add tahini and almond butter and mix for a minute or two over low heat to make a smooth mix.
  • Take off the heat and add in the honey and cacao, and mix well. (NB: Be sure to remove from the heat before adding the honey as the heat will alter the nutrient profile of the honey and we want these babies to be as nutrient dense as possible!).
  • Set in small bite size moulds in the fridge or freezer for an hour, and just pop them out when you're ready to enjoy!
