SWEET CORNER: RAW VEGAN CHOCOLATE COCONUT BITES

July 27, 2015

Cookies no longer have to be a one size fits all type recipe! Instead, there are so many healthy twists on cookies that you don’t have to give up your sweet tooth to stay slim! A lover of sweets since I can remember my first piece of cake, so I know too well the same struggles of giving into to that sweet tooth too often. However, there are so many healthy ways to get grip on your sweet tooth and control those sugar cravings. I have learned through research and creativity certain foods can conquer those sugar cravings and also satisfy the sweet tooth. One food to remember when creating guilt free desserts is Medjool Dates ! They have so many nutritional benefits and these are:

 

  • Multiple Nutrients

  • Fiber Rich

  • Great Source of Potassium

  • Rich in Cooper

  • Provides Satisfaction (controls sugar cravings)

  • Healthy Snack

  • Regulates Blood Pressure

  • Maintains Healthy Nervous System

  • Combats Arteriosclerosis

  • Anti-oxidant Properties

 

 

ZEN ON A PLATE'S RECIPE: RAW VEGAN CHOCOLATE COCONUT BITES 

 INGREDIENTS

 

 

 DRY INGREDIENTS

3 Table spoon of chips

3/4 C Gluten Free Oats

         one fourth of cup of coconut flakes

 

WET INGREDIENTS

 

9 Medjool dates (take out pits and if dates are dry soak or run in water until they are moist)

1 cup of Unsweetened Almond Milk or a 6 0z of 8 0z carton of almond milk

 1 Table Spoon of Coconut or Extra Virgin Olive oil

 

DIRECTIONS

 

In a food processor combine all dry ingredients.  Next, pulse the wet ingredients into mixture until well combined. Scoop 1 Tablespoon out roll into ball and put on a tray. Throw extra coconut flakes or chips on as desired before putting on tray. Refrigerate for 2 hours before serving. Eat two and save for the rest of the week to eat when you’re craving something sweet.

                     Take out the pits and soak dates if they are not moist

                        Put all the ingredients in the blender or food processer

 

*Please note if you’re using a blender like I did put in all ingredients and then put in almond milk last

 

 Use a spoon to scoop out balls and place desired extra add ons like  dark chocolate chips and coconut flakes to add on to your balls

 Make sure to have a tray on hand and leave enough space in between the ball  around two to three fingers if they were placed together

 

       Then take the tray and Refridgerate for at least two hours

            Bon Appetit! Remember to have sweets in moderation, and save the rest of the remainder of the week when you are getting a sugar craving.

 

 

Prep Time 15

Serves 10-11 Balls
