I am a super chocoholic, it’s a problem! But with these super little bars, I can get my chocolate hit, with a little less guilt. These are soo good. And some healthy sprinkles added on top, which is my new obsession sprinkling little crunchy healthy things on my food e.g cacoa nibs, buckwheat groats, sunflower seeds, flaxseeds, chia seeds, crushed nuts… oh the crunchy goodness of it all!

  • 1/4 cup maple syrup
  • 1/6 cup coconut oil
  • 1 Tbs Peanut Butter
  • SPRINKLES
  • Dried mulberries

  • Buckwheat groats

To make:

My Bliss #3

bliss3

I created this recipe a few days back, and since then my food processor broke (so sad). But on the upside, I found a great sites for buying nuts and superfood bulk! Time to save some pennies I think!!

You will need:
1/2 cup cashews
1/2 cup almonds
1/4 cup vanilla protein powder
1/4 cup cacoa nib
1/2 tbs cacoa powder
1/4 cup almond meal
2 dates
2-3 tbs rice syrup

Now blend it all up, and roll them into balls, yum yum!

 

My bliss:

1. Putting up the Christmas tree
2. Getting our hedge planted
3. Started some new fitness challenges
4. Excited to go to a wedding on the weekend
5. Summer rain
