Cacao Almond and Coconut Fat Bombs

These cacao and coconut fat bombs are a great tasting and satisfying fat burning snack that can be enjoyed throughout the day to help improve your energy levels . These do need to be kept in the freezer or they can soften and melt.

The combination of coconut and cacao is a common pairing in the dessert world and for good reason, it’s delicious.  Coconut fats are easy on the digestive system as they are mostly medium chain diglycerides that are quickly metabolized into ketones that fuel the brain and body.  Raw cacao is rich in minerals and anti-oxidants such as polyphenols and theobromine that can help to increase the blood supply to the brain and enhance the production and utilization of neurotransmitters such as dopamine and serotonin.

This combination of healthy fats and anti-oxidants improves your mood, memory and mental drive.  It also helps to keep you full and avoid snacking in between meals.  In addition this recipe uses Lakanto as a sweetner for a sugar-free option. Lakanto will not raise blood sugar levels, so its safe for diabetics and it does not feed candida.
