Paleo Halloween Candy!?
Instead of relying solely on your will power this Halloween season, I recommend making yourself a refined sugar-free, nutrient dense (good fat), and antioxidant rich (raw cacao powder) treat for you and your household. I made these Mexican Chocolate Coconut Bites and they've been satisfying any sort of candy craving for me. You could change out the spices, skip the cayenne, add nuts, whatever floats your boat! If you have a fun pumpkin, ghost, or witch's hat silicone molds, that would make these even better.
1/2 cup unrefined, virgin coconut oil
1/2 cup unrefined coconut butter
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup real maple syrup
1 Tbs cinnamon
1 tsp vanilla (powder or extract)
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp cayenne
Melt coconut oil in sauce pan. Add coconut butter. Whisk to combine. Then whisk in the remaining ingredients until smooth. Pour carefully into a silicone mold tray. Place in freezer for 1 hour. Pop out and eat right away. Keep in mind that these will melt fairly easily in a warm environment.
