Chocolate power nuggets

In an attempt to curb my stress induced sweet cravings, I have been doing some extra things for adrenal support. But sometimes a girl just needs a teensy bit of chocolate. I’m talking good quality chocolate, not your drug store Easter chocolate. These little nuggets fulfilled my sweet craving and left my very satisfied.  Recipe makes 12-15 one inch nuggest at about 50 calories each: Image

  • 6 fancy Medjool dates, pitted
  • 1/4 cup raw almonds
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter
  • 2 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • small pinch sea salt
  • unsweetened shredded coconut (optional-for outer coating)

For this recipe you’ll need a food processor or Vitamix. Make sure the dates are pitted- double check even if the package says pitted! Combine ingredients in food processor (except shredded coconut), pulse until almonds are finely chopped and ingredients form a dough-like texture. You may need to add a little bit more coconut oil for the right consistency. Form teaspoon sized amount into a 1″ ball and roll in shredded coconut. And that’s it. I like them best after they’ve been refrigerated for a few hours. The closest thing I can compare them to is the Chocolate Coconut Lara Bar
