Satisfy Your Sweet Tooth the Healthy Way

January 15, 2012

Sometimes sugar cravings can be hard to ignore. I know I crave chocolate when I’m really stressed or have a lot going on. Whatever your reason, we can all agree that there are certain times when our taste buds need a little something sweet.

Instead of giving in and scarfing down a chocolate bar, try to instead enjoy sweet treats that can satisfy the craving without sabotaging your diet or spiking your blood sugar. I love this Raw, Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe from the Healthy Blender Recipes blog. Not only is it packed with antioxidants, but I also like cacao powder and raw cacao nib. , It’s delicious and the perfect way to finish a meal! 

Raw, Vegan Mint Chocolate Chip Cookies

  • 3 cups raw almond meal
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 1/4 cup raw cacao nibs
  • 3/4 cup raw agave nectar, depending on preference
  • 3 tbsp coconut oil
  • 1 tsp natural alcohol-free peppermint essence
  • 1/2 tsp Celtic sea salt
  1. Place all of the ingredients in your food processor and pulse until well combined. The mixture should form a ball.
  2. Take this ball and roll it out to about a 1/4 inch on parchment paper.
  3. Now cut out even small circles. I used the top of a shot glass.
  4. Place these circles on dehydrator sheets and slowly warm at 115 degrees for 48 hours.
  5. Store in a sealed container in the fridge for about 3 to 4 weeks.
