You bet! You can read about all the reasons why in my last blog post.

Plus here is the easiest, most delicious appetite- and sweet tooth-curbing recipe you can whip up -- all for the sake of hormonal harmony!

Recipe

Ingredients:

  • ½ cup almond or other nut butter, no sugar-added (if nut-sensitive, use sesame tahini or sunflower seed butter)

  • ½ cup virgin coconut oil

  • 3 Tbs raw, unprocessed cacao powder

  • stevia, xylitol or monk fruit to sweeten to taste

  • silicone candy mould or mini-muffin pan

Optional add-ins:

  • splash of real vanilla extract or vanilla powder

  • cinnamon or ginger

  • pinch of Himalayan pink salt or Celtic grey salt

How to prepare:

  1. In a large skillet melt coconut oil and nut butter over low heat.

  2. Stir in cacao powder and desired sweetener.

  3. Remove from heat and add vanilla (+ other add-ins), if using.

  4. You may want to pour mixture into a “spouted” cup to make pouring easier.

  5. Pour mixture into silicone candy molds or mini-muffin pan (about 1 Tb of mixture)

  6. Put in freezer or fridge until set.

  7. Remove from molds and store in the fridge in an airtight container.

Be mindful that each fat bomb is considered a full serving of fat - great for curbing the appetite, satisfying a sweet tooth and supporting your hormones with the building blocks they need!
