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 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 gluten-free desserts is Medjool Dates! They have so many nutritional benefits and these are:
Great Source of Potassium
Rich in Cooper
Provides Satisfaction (controls sugar cravings)
Regulates Blood Pressure
Maintains Healthy Nervous System
ZEN ON A PLATE'S RECIPE: RAW VEGAN CHOCOLATE COCONUT BITES
3 Table spoon of chips
3/4 C Gluten Free Oats
one fourth of cup of coconut flakes
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
In a food processor combine all dry ingredients. Next, pulse the wet ingredients into the 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.
