Omega-licious chocolates

These chocolates are loaded with healthy fats and protein derived from walnuts, almonds and coconut oil.  One chocolate will satisfy your sweet tooth and two will curve your appetite.

  • ½ cup organic virgin coconut oil
  • 1 cup almond butter
  • ½ cup Lily’s dark chocolate stevia sweeten pieces 55% cocoa (or 2 Tbs cocoa powder and stevia as sweetner)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 24 walnuts or almonds (pieces)
  • Fill a medium saucepan with 1 inch of water and bring to boil. Place another smaller saucepan on top or a metal bowl.
  • Bring heat to low, add coconut oil, almond butter, chocolate pieces, vanilla extract and stir until everything is melted.
  • Prepare a bite-size square silicone mold, 24-cavity for baking; or any baking dish lined with parchment paper.
  • Place one piece of nut into each mold cavity. Carefully, pour chocolate mix into mold.
  • Place in the freezer for 15 minutes to allow it to solidify.
  • *Tip: I like to place a chopping board under the silicone mold to prevent bending while transferring to the freezer.
