Get stuck into these delightful, gluten-free and heart energising treats…
These heart melting morsels are a necessity in any household, and a great way to transition to more home cooked snacks versus those candy bars, which contain a long list of ingredients which are normally hidden chemicals, and generally just fake…
Chocolate fat bombs are also a great addition when you have put aside 2-3 weeks to give your body a cleanse from the inside, and hitting the pause button on sugary and refined foods. This allows your body to restock up on vital nutrients that allows your body to thrive, whilst kicking that sugar habit goodbye.
Now before you get started, I want to share with you that I usually wing it when it comes to measurements and always opt for what’s in the cupboards, as opposed to making sure I have every single item on the recipe. In most instances it works, and when it doesn’t, it really is a disaster! So here is one of those improvisation moments that really worked, try it for yourself!
Chocolate Fat Bombs
Soak the almonds in filtered water for at least 2 hours (to remove the phytic acid), rinse of the brown residue and wash. Then lightly roast the almonds for an estimate 8-10 minutes at 180 celcius. Roughly chop once the almonds are cool enough.
Slowly melt the coconut oil in a small pot on low heat.
Whisk in the cacao and carob powder. Heap the tablespoons, for that extra kick!
Pour the whisked liquid chocolate goodness into a small square plastic container.
Sprinkle the almonds, sesame and chia seeds into the mix. Add some extra sesame seeds to cover the top.
Set to firm in the freezer for 30-45 minutes, tip block upside down and cut into small squares.
If the block is too hard, leave to defrost slightly (10-15 minutes) prior cutting into heavenly chunks!
Wha laaa Magnesium heaven. The combination with the carob & cacao gives it some zing factor!
Enjoy, and let me know how you get on with your version.
