My “baby” – chocolate chip cookies!
Just had this for my lunch – the lettuce doesn’t really get a look in flavour wise but it gave me a big chocolate hit whilst still getting some vits from the lettuce! :-)
This is an adaptation of Angie’s great dipping chocolate for the serious chocolate addict. This should take care of those early “I need chocolate now cravings.” It will harden almost right away in the vitamix to the consistency of soft wax so you can push into little molds or roll into balls for a daily fix.
I ate it right away (hence, no photo) but I’m guessing you could roll this out with a rolling pin and cut shapes, bars, etc. I’ll play with it some more, take pics and update.
A friend made this for me once, except she replaced the coconut with dates. DELICIOUS AND EASY TO MAKE!!!!! This is so filling, and chia seeds are a complete source of protein. It’s a perfect, delicious source of protein for kids, with 15 grams of protein per serving (go to oneluckyduck.com, select EAT, then ingredients, and Chia seeds. it lists the nutrition content)
Chia seeds are great for anyone with constipation, as they ease digestion. Good for diabetics as well.
You could also try a vanilla pudding, but the chocolate powder seems to be a major ingredient in this recipe. Oneluckyduck.com suggests mixing chia seeds with cashew butter, but why would you want to mix some exensive, high quality product as chia seeds with cashew butter? It’s gross to me. :/
If only Popeye knew about these. They are a perfect way conquer your sweet-tooth or post work-out cravings while also receiving your doses of protein, fiber, EFA’s and EAA’s.
