RAW "Ferrero Rocher" Clean Treats
I'm really craving chocolate at the moment , to the extent where I want it everyday and most likely will eat it everyday. I am a huge believer in treating yourself (within reason of course) but having chocolate (not just a piece, Im talking nearly a whole block) everyday is not going to have a very positive impact on my goals! Usually when you crave chocolate it's a sign that your body is lacking in magnesium, so I made these aaaaaaamazing epic tasting Raw Ferraro Rocher inspired clean treats! They have cacao in them which is full of magnesium- just what the body is needing I feel! They also contain a lot of raw hazelnuts, which have a high amount of vitamin E and B vitamins, potassium, calcium and again magnesium!. Magnesium is important for the body as it helps to maintain normal nerve and muscle function, supports a healthy immune system, keeps the heart beat steady, and helps bones remain strong. It also helps to regulate blood glucose levels and aid in the production of energy and protein.
3 generous table spoons of raw cacao powder
1 1/2 cups raw hazel nuts
3 table spoons of coconut sugar
1/2 cup of coconut flour
4 table spoons of coconut oil (melted)
2 table spoons of agave or brown rice malt syrup
3 drops of raw vanilla essence
Blend all of your ingredients together in a food processor except for the coconut oil, vanilla and agave.
Once all of the dates and hazel nuts have been processed into fine pieces, melt your coconut oil and stir into the dry mix with agave and vanilla.
Once the wet ingredients have been mixed through the dry ingredients roll your mix into balls and place into the fridge to set!
Once the balls have set (usually takes up to 2 hours you can then enjoy...responsibly, don't eat the whole batch in one go (even though it's hard not too 😅).
Best served on their own as a snack, treat alternative or with my tasty green smoothie (recipe to be posted soon) as a quick lunch option!
I believe this is one of the BEST alternatives to a Ferraro Rocher I've tasted, give it a go to help kick those unwanted sugar cravings and let me know what you think of the recipe.
