-Fat is digested slowly in the digestive track, keeping you full longer than protein or carbs
-Fats slow the breakdown of carbohydrates, helping to keep blood sugar more stable.
-Our bodies need fat in order to absorb fat soluble vitamins.
-Monounsaturated fats can lower “bad” LDL cholesterol and increase “good” HDL cholesterol.
-There is no such thing as an essential carbohydrate, BUT…
There are essential fatty acids that the body cannot synthesized and must be obtained through food. We need these fatty acids in order to build specialized fats like omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.

These taste like a reese’s peanut butter cup, and I don’t feel guilty eating three or ten ;)

These are perfect if you need a little something to tie you over till your next meal without throwing back some processed carbs. They are so easy to make and the possibilities with different ingredients are endless.

+ 1/2 cup almond butter
+ extra almond butter for filling
+ 4 Tbs grass fed butter, melted*
+ 4 Tbs coconut oil, melted
+ 4 Tbs unsweetened cocoa powder
+ 20 drops liquid stevia or 4 stevia packets
+ 6 drops Young Living peppermint vitality essential oil (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a bowl until well combined and pour 1 Tbs of mix into silicone molds (I use these). Chill in freezer for 5 min. Add about 1/2 tsp almond butter on top of chocolate layer. Add another 1 Tbs chocolate mix on top of the almond butter. Chill in freezer for at least 30 min before eating. Store in fridge or freezer to prevent melting.

Yields 12 cups

*The quality of essential oil matters. We only use Young Living.

Have a nut allergy? Swap the nut butter for sunflower seed butter (sunbutter) and you’ve got yourself a low carb, nut free treat! Don’t like almond butter? Use peanut butter or cashew butter instead.

Can’t have butter? You can swap the butter for more coconut oil. Or if you can tolerate ghee, that’s an option as well. Some people can’t have butter but are fine with ghee.
