It doesn’t get much better than this! A ketogenic, low-carb, fat burning chocolate dessert that melts in your mouth! I could live on these! Because they are low sugar, they are a great snack as well as a dessert option.
Coconut butter and coconut oil are rich in lauric acid which is a natural anti-microbial that helps the body reduce yeast and bad bacteria. These fats also help improve our ability to burn fat for energy and improve brain function.
Raw chocolate or cacao this 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 feel good endorphins and serotonin that helps improve mood and sleep . This combination of ingredients makes raw chocolate the best mood boosting superfood. Your family will go crazy for this recipe!
