Healthy Chocolate Mousse Recipe

Superfood Chocolate Bars

Did you know you can make dark chocolate at home?! All you have to do is combine equal parts of cacao powder, coconut oil and maple syrup on a stovetop and then freeze => coconut oil fudge. That chocolate already is a step above store bought organic dark chocolate, which is a step above Hershey’s and Cadbury. But these superfood chocolate bars sweetened only with dates, full of superfoods like coconut oil, chia seeds, cacao powder and coconut flakes are so 2020.

Caffe Mocha Protein Overnight Oatmeal

  5 minutes and you have a healthy breakfast on-the-go for the next 5 days. This overnight oatmeal is like eating dessert for breakfast – creamy, sweet and chocolate-y. And it has extra coffee that I’m sure any mama needs on a weekday morning. If you are not a fan of protein powder, I have included substitute options. I love using protein powder because it is usually naturally sweetened, so I can keep my food low in sugar. You can use stevia as well.

I love dark chocolate and I love peanut butter. Who doesn’t?! A few months ago I developed black bean brownie recipe, which is a big hit with my…

Homemade Protein Bars

  The best homemade protein bars I ever made. They are to die for! Delicious, moist and extremely crunchy inside and outside. Every bite feels like a Crispy Crunch bite. You know that bar?! Even if you skip the topping, the protein bars are crunchy. Although that means missing out on toasted almonds and chocolate. How can you skip that and why?! Believe it or not, nutritional info won’t change much if you omit the topping.
