Peanut Butter Cacao Bombs


This healthier snack is designed to curb your cravings without spiking your blood sugar. It's incredibly simple to put together and tastes amazing. I like to serve these with espresso at the end of a dinner party.


Don't confuse cacao powder with cocoa. Although they both derive from the same bean, cocoa is heavily processed and lacks most of the nutrients of its unprocessed cousin. Cacao is actually one of the most nutrient-dense foods available, being a rich source of antioxidants and flavonoids, which help combat the ageing process. Cacao is also an excellent source of magnesium and iron, vital for turning food into energy and maintaining bone health.


Some people find the taste of cocoa a little bitter, so I have given you an option to add a few dates to offset this. However, the bitterness is something you can come to love, so I recommend you gradually wean yourself off the sweeter option and allow the salt in the peanut butter to complement the cacao's natural bitterness.

Ingredients

  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • ½ cup raw cacao powder

  • ½ cup peanut butter

  • dates to taste

Method


1. Melt the coconut oil, then add the remaining ingredients and blend until smooth.

2. Pour into mini muffin cups and put in the freezer for around 30 minutes, until set. Alternatively, if you do not have muffin cups (I don't) you can put the mixture in the freezer for a few minutes until it is partially set, then mould into balls with your hands and return to the freezer.


Serve straight from the freezer onto cold plates.
