An Effort to End Nutritional Ignorance
I have to be honest. I almost didn’t share this recipe with you guys. Because I was going to launch the Power Ball Super Dessert line and retire on an island, giving 50% of my Power Ball proceeds to charity. But I’ve decided my charity act instead, is going to be passing it along to you.
Not that you are a charity act…really I’m way too busy to launch anything right now….but I will launch into how amazing these dessert are!
How to describe? Hmmm.
If a super health nut and a serious chocolate lover had 12 little delicious edible babies, that would be Power Balls! (Minus the weirdness of that concept).
It’s my go-to “I’ll bring dessert” recipe, because I know it’s real, it’s healthy, additive-free, ridiculously scrumptious, and so rich you can’t eat too many.
OK, you actually can, but it’d be hard if others are around, because they’ll be snatching them up so quickly. They are that good.
The secret is….the measurements are flexible, I make them differently each time. So play around and see which combo/ratio you like best!
The optional Ingredients are what give these tasty treats their power! Maca supports hormone balance, increases libido (hello!) and boosts your energy. Chia seeds and flax seeds are rich in Omega 3’s, protein and fiber, so include them!
In a food processor combine:
3 Tbsp coconut oil
4 Tbsp Cacao Powder
1/2 cup almonds
3 Tbsp of Honey
2 dashes of cinnamon
1 pinch of sea salt
1 tbsp of chia seeds (optional)
1 tbsp of Flax seeds (optional)
1 tsp of maca powder (optional)
Spoon out the sticky mixture on to wax paper or foil on a plate you will put in the freezer
Make several small ‘power balls’, you determine how big or small (they don’t have to be pretty)
Melt (I use the microwave about 30 seconds, stir, then a second 30 seconds) 1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
Scoop out melted chocolate and drizzle over the power balls (coat entirely or just a drizzle)
Place balls in the freezer for 5-10 min
Thank me later
