Since my transformation back in December, I must say I am super proud of how far I have come. I reached my goal weight by simply following a 1200 calorie diet and a lot of exercise. As my body got used to the same routine I took somewhat of a break and figured I should enjoy whats left of my summer and I have
gained a few pounds but hey thats the beauty of this lifestyle there is no destination. Its a constant change and I truly love it! Well now that my birthday is coming up in October I am ready to transform my body yet again and this time I’m doing it the low carb way. Ive tried many times these past couple of weeks to get it right but today I can say my mindset is where it needs to be to stick to this plan to see the change I want to see. As my sweet tooth attack happened I had to search for a craving killer. So a good friend of mine shared a recipe with me to try. Let me just say I am sooooooo thankful she did! I did make some modifications and I’m going to share the recipe I followed with the ingredients I used. I hope you can use this as a guide to keep you on track as well!
1/2 Cup of Organic Coconut Oil
1/2 Cup of Natural Peanut Butter or Almond Butter
(I used 1/2 cup of powdered peanut butter )
(Less than 5 grams of sugar is important)
2 to 3 tablespoons of unsweetened cocoa powder
2 tablespoons of Splenda or Stevia
(or sweeten to taste)
A dash of Vanilla extract (Optional)
1. In a large pan heat and melt your coconut oil and peanut butter.
2. Stir in your cocoa powder and splenda.
3. Once removed from the heat you may add your vanilla extract.
4. Pour into silicone candy molds or even small cupcake holders.
Each mold or holder should hold one tablespoon of the mix.
Place in the freezer and until you have chocolate candy looking deliciousness.
You can eat one fat bomb when that sweet tooth craving starts or if you want to curb your appetite.
If you’re anything like me I like to keep track of everything on my LoseIt App. So my calculations for the nutrition facts for 1 piece comes out to
1.5 grams of Protein
9 grams of Fat
Also you should keep them zip locked air tight and in the fridge or freezer as they will melt being at room temperature.
