2 Life Changing (well okay, maybe just delicious) Healthy Snacks

Sugar Free, No Bake - Peanut Butter Cocoa Balls

Sugar Free, No Bake - Peanut Butter Cocoa Balls

Ingredients:


3 cups rolled oats

1/2 cup honey (I used less)
1/4 cup natural peanut butter (I used more)
1/2 cup coconut oil

1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1/4 teaspoon salt

Directions:


In a medium sauce pan over medium heat, stir the honey, coconut oil and peanut butter together until combined and smooth. Next add in the remaining ingredients, stir and remove from heat. Use your cookie scoop or (if you are living in the dark ages) a spoon to make little balls of the mixture. Drop onto a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper and put them in the freezer to cool down for about 15 minutes. I recommend keeping these in the fridge as they taste much better cold and hard! These things taste kinda like my monster cookies...but guilt free! #cleaneatingprogress


Coconut Whip Cream with Berries
Coconut Whip Cream with Berries
 

Ingredients:
1 can of coconut milk (that has been in fridge upside down for at least 6 hour)
2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp maple syrup
berries

Directions:

This is my go to for a quick and easy treat. I always try and keep at least one can of coconut milk in the fridge (upside down) because you never know when you want to whip up this very delicious very easy recipe. When you are choosing your coconut milk at the store, shake the can and try and get one that doesn't have much movement or sloshing. When you open the refrigerated can it will have separated into hard packed cream and liquid. For this recipe you can throw away the liquid (or store for a smoothie). I use my mix master to whip the hard coconut cream and then slowly add cocoa powder and maple syrup to taste. You can't go wrong here, add more or add less, whatever you like! Once it's all whipped add a dollop heaping scoop to your favourite cut up fruit or berries...enjoy!

Do you have any go to healthy snacks? and I mean something more exciting then celery and peanut butter (because I am currently eating that and I want to hear about something else lol)
