Supercharged cacao love bites 


These little squares of heaven took a while to perfect, minutes to scoff, and bloody ages to name. You’ll understand when you try them (which, by the way, you must) – they’re like a cross between a truffle and an energy ball, with all the best bits of both. They’re so rich and delicious that you only need a little square to satisfy your chocolate cravings, but they’re packed with all sorts of good things too – cacao nibs and cacao powder are packed with antioxidants, maca is a great energy booster (and also great for fertility) and almond butter is a fantastic source of good fats and protein. 

So whether these little bites of yum fall under the truffle or energy ball category in your book, one thing’s for certain. You will LOVE them, and, thanks to all their super amazing ingredients, they will LOVE you right back. So with all that lovely love in mind, let us present to you our supercharged cacao love bites. They taste so indulgent, and (if you can bear to share them) they make fantastic pressies –  just give them a couple of different toppings (we’ve used almond butter and goji berries, raw chocolate and Himalayan sea salt and cacao powder and fresh mint), pop them in a little container and you’ve basically got a healthy chocolate box that looks and tastes amazing. BOOM.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups cacao nibs
  • 1 tbsp maca powder
  • 1/3 cup cacao powder
  • 3/4 cup almond butter
  • 3 tbsp melted coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • Pinch of Himalayan sea salt

First, blend the cacao nibs in your blender or food processor until they form the consistency of ground coffee beans (like a coarse powder). Pour into a mixing bowl and combine with all the other ingredients. Shape into little squares (or use a mould if you like, we got ours on Amazon for just a few squids) and place in the fridge for a couple of hours to chill. Top with any toppings if you like, and get ready for some loving.

Love, Mrs H xx
