I love making these delicious and nutritious chocolatey bites, as they are loaded with goodness and also very quick and simple to make. Takes about 10 minutes to make if you have all the ingredients handy !
1/2 Cup Coconut Oil - liquid form
1/2 Cup Cacao powder
1/4 Cup Carob syrup / maple syrup or sweetener of choice
1 tsp Spirulina powder
1/2 tsp Moringa powder
1 cup trail mix (e.g. 2 tbsp shredded coconut, 1 tbsp goji berries, 1 tbsp blackcurrants, 2 tbsp raw nuts, 1 tbsp chia seeds)
2 tbsp crushed almonds to sprinkle on top (optional) --> or any other crunchy nut or seed.
small cup cake papers
On a plastic tray or chopping board, layout about 20 small cup cake papers. Take a teaspoon and mix the add in's. Then put a tsp of the mix in each cup cake paper until it is finished.
In a small pot, add the coconut oil, cacao powder, carob syrup, spirulina, moringa. Gently heat over a very low fire for about 1 minute until it has become a thick syrup. Take 1 tsp of the liquid mixture and pour into each cup cake paper making sure that the liquid covers most of the trail mix. Place in fridge to harden. Store in the fridge as coconut oil softens in warm weather.
Note: Recently a Harvard professor has come out and said that Coconut oil is a poison due to its high saturated fat content. On average women should consume no more than 20g of saturated fat per day and men 30g. One teaspoon of coconut oil has 3.9g... well within our limits if we factor it in our daily limit.
