A little bite of chocolate is always a good thing.
A little bite of chocolate and almond butter is a very good thing!
These little treats are not only adorable, they’re also healthy! It’s true!
Made with coconut oil and stevia, they are loaded with antioxidants, healthy fats, alkalizing properties, and pure deliciousness.
You could use liquid stevia, but I like the slight crunch of the granulated kind in these candies.
Since coconut oil melts at body temperature, it’s important to keep these nibbles in the freezer or fridge until you’re ready to chomp.
They’ll also start to melt onto your fingertips, but that just means you get to lick off the melted tastiness. Oh, well
I made these in an empty ice cube tray, but you could use candy trays, or even mini muffin tins. Whatever makes it easier to get them into your mouth quicker will probably be the best choice.
