Mid Week Motivator: Chocolate
It is no secret that one of my favorite food groups is chocolate. The battle with this treat has been going on for months. I have indulged in way too much frozen yogurt ( Publix’s Chocolate Cookie Quarry most especially)! Then for a week or two it was hot chocolate ( two packets of course) topped with marshmallows and finished off with cookies.
I tried to go without desert, to eat nothing after dinner. But the cravings continued.
I wanted to satisfy this craving without continuing this downward trend. Opening my Pinterest app, I searched for a healthy, easy chocolate recipe.
I found a winner! All I needed was Coconut Oil (4 tablespoons melted), agave or honey (1/4 cup), and coco powder (I got Hershey Special Dark, 1/2 cup plus one tablespoon). Stir it all together and either spread out on a cookie sheet with wax paper (I used a muffin tin and a rubber ice cube tray ). Freeze for 30 min. There you have it! I added walnuts to one batch and unsalted roasted almonds to another. Full recipe found on http://sallysbakingaddiction.com/
A healthy, delicious, chocolate treat. These satisfy my chocolate craving just fine. I found just one or two of these are enough for me. Eating healthy does not mean not enjoying things like chocolate. But discovering new ways to do so.
