Sneak Peak Recipe: Almond Butter Fat Bombs (Gluten Free, Low Sugar, Dairy Free)

So, you go sugar-free or low-carb for a while and then—BAM—one bite of a sweet cake or cookie or piece of bread and your cravings come back full force! 

Ever notice that? It’s normal. 

Sugar triggers pleasure receptors in your brain, and that causes you to want more and more and more. 

And it’s a nasty cycle.

You crave sugar, so you eat it and then you keep eating it and then you feel sluggish and it’s just not a fun place to be in.

This is why I like to keep my sugar intake very low and my fat intake high. It keeps my sugar cravings at bay, it helps to balance my blood sugar, it keeps my brain fuelled and it provides me with lots of energy. 

Plus, healthy fat is incredibly important for hormonal health.

This is one of the 60 recipes from my book The 30 Day Hormone Soltuion. You can order your copy at hormonesolutionbook.com

 

In the meantime, test out this recipe and enjoy!!

  1. Line a large muffin tin with silicone liners or parchment baking cups. Over a double boiler, melt the cacao butter and coconut oil together. As they start to melt, add the cacao powder and almond butter, gently stirring everything together. 

  2. Add the vanilla, sea salt and sweetener of choice (if using). When melted, remove from the heat and stir in the coconut chips. Pour the mixture into the silicone muffin molds, filling just one-quarter of the way.
