B E N E F I T S Most traditional desserts, this season, are high in dairy, processed sugar and processed flours lowering the immune system, taxing your adrenals, unbalancing your hormones, and secretly disrupting your quality of sleep. This dessert, on the other hand, is high in Omega-3, zinc, vitamin C, and blood stabilizing cinnamon.
3 tbls raw cacao 2 tbls virgin coconut oil 2 tbls raw honey 1 spring of lavender
Place cacao, coconut oil, and honey in a bowl and mix together until the texture is even, smooth, and creamy chocolate-like. Roll into balls, or simply use a spoon to drizzle them onto a sheet of parchment paper. Place in freezer for 15 minutes to set.
+ The texture will depend on the consistency of the coconut oil. If melted, the texture will be runnier and smooth. If hardened, the texture can be rolled into balls like proper truffles. I chose to make these with melted coconut oil while leaving one in the middle (from last night) that was from hardened coconut oil.
