Dr Jockers Comments:
Pumpkin and sunflower seeds are rich in zinc, B vitamins, essential fats and fiber. Coconut is loaded with medium-chain triglyceride fatty acids that are powerful for boosting brain function and speeding up metabolism.
The original recipe used honey, but we swapped that out for the keto maple syrup which uses the natural sweeteners monk fruit and erythritol which do not impact our blood sugar. This makes the recipe taste great without unnecessary sugar. This recipe is high in healthy fats, has moderate amounts of protein and is very low in carbohydrates but rich in fiber and anti-oxidants.
This recipe helps to boost dopamine which is a pleasure neurotransmitter and it helps us strive to achieve goals and be successful in life. I love to have chocolate for lunch to give me renewed energy for the afternoon. Try this out and let us know what you experience in the comments box below.
