Megan’s Comments:

Okay, this is now my new favorite dessert- and they are always great to have on hand when you get a sweet craving!

These cookie bites are filled with healthy fat, protein, fiber, raw enzymes and antioxidants – all to fuel your brain, balance your hormones, get your digestion going, and boost your mood!

For your weight and hormones sake, it is always a good idea to have some protein and fat when you are having a dessert, or snack for that matter- and these include all of the above!

Notes  

  • You can use any nut/seed butter
  • The protein powders I use are a bone broth protein or a pea protein. The flavor/texture of your protein powder can make the batter vary in texture and taste. Vanilla or a chocolate protein powder works wonderful!
  • You can also mess around by add more coconut oil and a bit of water or almond/coconut milk if you would like to omit the keto syrup and add a few drops of stevia!

Dr Jockers Comments:

The combination of good fats in the coconut oil, raw chocolate and chia seeds is a match made in heaven!  This recipe will help you burn fat, build healthy lean body tissue, improve digestive function and supercharge your brain!

Also called cacao this superfood is loaded with dopamine boosting nutrients.  It is one of the best sources of PEA’s which are natural compounds that cross over the blood brain barrier and stimulate and modulate the release of dopamine in the brain.  Cacao is also very rich in magnesium and zinc and chromium which help to balance and stabilize blood sugar.

Cacao also helps to boost serotonin and contains endorphin Anandamide which is considered the “bliss chemical.”  This combination of ingredients makes raw chocolate the best mood boosting superfood.  Be careful not to overdo the chocolate though as the body may develop a sensitivity to some of the compounds in the chocolate and create adrenal stress.

The best protein powders are either a bone broth protein or a high quality vegan protein.  We like our Super Digest Protein that is a combination of organic brown rice protein and pea protein.  This is fantastic if you have a food sensitivity to whey.
