#Chocolate anyone? #recipe

I felt inspired this week after seeing two easy recipes to make delectable treats starring one of my favorite ingredients: chocolate. Wait! These are healthy options! Read further...

The no-bake cookies featured: coconut oil, raw honey, cocoa, peanut butter, real vanilla, and dried unsweetened coconut. See!! Told you it was healthy. Each cookie is a tablespoon of YUM! For the full recipe, you'll have to visit my Facebook page. This one was inspired by the Unrefined Kitchen. 

Now let's get to the other chocolate dish. The original recipe by The Earth Diet called for 3 ingredients: almonds, cocoa and maple syrup. I felt the measurements were off so I added more maple syrup and changed the ingredients a tad. This one is a winner! 

New ingredients and their measurements: 1 cup almond meal, 1/2 cup of Juice Plus+ Complete (dutch chocolate) + 1/4 cup of unsweetened cocoa,  1/2 cup pure maple syrup, and 1/2 tablespoon of ground flax seeds. Stir until combined. Roll into balls. Makes approximately twenty 1" balls. 

If you want to learn more about Juice Plus+ Complete, feel free to leave a comment or contact me on Facebook. You can also visit any website and read the Nutrition Facts (not Supplement Facts label) and the actual ingredients. 

You can use any protein powder if you don't have JP+ on hand, or simply you can use cocoa powder. I hope you enjoy the recipes and feel free to leave a comment here or on Facebook with your rendition.
