Chocolate (Cacao) Snacks Vegan Recipes

Vegan Paleo Reese’s Cups

 

Craving something chocolaty and sweet, but don’t care for all the extra additives? Try out my Vegan “Reese’s Cup” recipe. Feel free to be creative and add in additional things like pre-soaked raw almonds, or pre-soaked raw pecans. Or if you’re looking for something to sweeten it up more, maybe add in some fresh berries or sliced bananas.

Ingredients:

Directions:

  • Melt coconut oil and peanut butter in saucepan on low heat. Stir together.
  • Mix in maple syrup. Stir in Cacao Powder. Remove from heat.
  • You can add fruit or pre-soaked raw nuts/seeds to the bottom of the cupcake liners first (my favorite thing to add in is sliced bananas). Or you can skip this step.
  • Pour mixture into 8-10 cupcake liners.
  • Set in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Store in the refrigerator or freezer.

Don’t feel up to making it?

Tips:

  • You can use miniature cupcake liners or regular size. I prefer the miniature ones.
  • You can store them longer by keeping them in the freezer.

JUST EAT REAL FOOD – Stop focusing on calories & focus on what you’re eating and how it makes you feel. Your body is always giving you signals, but many times we ignore them. Pay attention if you develop nausea, gas, bloating, abdominal pain, diarrhea, constipation, headaches, joint pain, rashes, or cold sores. If you develop any of these things after eating, it’s a good indicator that your body is giving you a clue to stop consuming something in your food. Many times these symptoms come from consuming chemicals, artificial coloring, and preservatives. Other times these symptoms can occur from a food allergy or sensitivity. Pay attention. Creating a food diary is a really great way to help you figure out what your triggers are.
