These will take care of your sugar fix without compromising your dietary needs. Super yummy, chocolatey, creamy bliss!
I have a little bit of dark chocolate every day because chocolate helps keep blood pressure down and it also contains tons of antioxidants, iron, magnesium, copper, manganese, potassium, zinc and selenium. It also helps me to have some healthy energy without all the caffeine of coffee, which is too much for me. There is a lot of controversy around how chocolate affects adrenal health, but for years it has helped me to have a little bit in the morning, kinda like the need people feel for coffee. If I eat too much I get jittery, but in moderation, I feel great. Days that I don’t have any, I definitely feel less energy.
The cinnamon in this recipe is also high in antioxidants and is anti-inflammatory, lowers blood sugar (helps with insulin balance) and has anti-fungal and anti-bacterial properties.
Stevia is great for those who want to cut back on sugar. Stevia is perhaps the only sweetener that is not just “not harmful,” but has actual health benefits. You can read about the amazing health benefits of Stevia here. I also love the coconut oil benefits in this recipe because coconut oil has anti-viral, anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. The oil is great for skin health and doesn’t store as fat, it is used as energy in the body. So, with all those great benefits, this treat is one to keep around.

It melts quickly so I keep mine in the freezer.
