Megan’s Comments:

I am always on the lookout for desserts I can eat and feel good about. Especially all things cookie dough, cake batter, any kind of batter or dough really. Which is why I love these little nuggets. Super easy to make. Gluten free, dairy free, grain free, and redefined sugar free.

Sweeter fruits like dates/bananas/melons have become my go to dessert treats. I have typically has been just eating low glycemic fruits like berries, green apples, kiwi, and grapefruit. This has given me so much more energy, and been amazing for my mood and hormones. Why? Stable blood sugar = stable hormones = happy body and mind.

When I do eat higher sugar fruits, I always pair it with a healthy fat to slow the metabolism of the sugar in the body. Which is why the coconut in these is the perfect combination, both for taste AND health. Boom.

Love keeping these in the freezer for times I am in need of a little pick me up.

Dr Jockers Comments:

If you want to make a healthy holiday or special occasion based dessert than you have it here.  Coconut flakes and coconut oil provide healthy fats that help your body to heal and burn fat more effectively.  Raw cacao nibs are a great source of anti-oxidants and compounds like magnesium, theobromine and PEA’s that improve blood flow into the brain and boost dopamine levels and make you feel great.

This recipe is completely grain free and easy on the body.  Dates are higher in sugar but they are a much better sweetener than what is traditionally used.  Use some of these quick tips when eating these cookies to lower the inflammatory blood sugar response.

This is a super fun recipe to make with your kids.  Enjoy!
