Megan’s Comments:

Gluten free, dairy free, no refined sugar, and no baking required.

I love desserts. I also love eating food that makes me feel amazing, boosts metabolism, clears skin and gives me energy. Usually these two desires do not go together well. Wonderful news is, there are amazing treats that will actually benefit your beautiful body, and satisfy your sweet tooth.

The two main stars in this show are coconut and cacao – both have amazing health properties that will change your life, or close to it.   These treats are easy, no baking required, and are perfect for even the picky eaters in the household.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a nice treat you can use as a snack anytime.  Megan originally used honey, but that has way more sugar/carbs than I would normally recommend so we substituted with the keto maple syrup which is a combination of monk fruit and erythritol.  These are natural sweetening agents that have no impact on your blood sugar.

This recipe is loaded with good fats in the coconut oil, coconut flakes reduce the blood sugar spike and make this less inflammatory in nature.  The combination of raw cacao and coconut is extraordinary for the brain.

The coconut oil contains medium chain fatty acids that are easily metabolized into ketones that feed the brain.  The cacao is rich in PEA’s which boost dopamine and theobromine which improves circulation into the brain.  I LOVE the combination of coconut and cacao for great mental drive!  Enjoy this sweet treat!
