Don’t fear the fat in these easy fat bombs!
If you tried the Coconutty Peanut Nom Noms I posted recently, then you might want to try these Dark Chocolate Coconut Nom Noms. They are just as easy to make and delicious, too. They are also a great way to get some more healthy fat into your diet.
Get some amino acids in your diet, too!
Plus, they have a secret ingredient that will ramp up the health benefits of these easy little fat bombs. Have you heard of Moringa Oleifera? I just recently became introduced to it and have noticed some great benefits.
Moringa has 18 amino acids, plus nutrients like potassium, magnesium and B vitamins. I think I’ve been deficient in those for some time, so I’ve really enjoyed finding ways to add Moringa to my foods.
If you don’t have Moringa powder, that’s OK too. You can just leave it out. But, if you can get some, I highly recommend it! This is the brand I’m currently using.
How to Make Dark Chocolate Coconut Nom Noms – THM S
- 1/2 c coconut oil (my favorite virgin coconut oil)
- 2 Tbs dark cocoa
- 2 Tbs shredded coconut (unsweetened – this is my favorite brand)
- 2 tsp Moringa powder
- Stevia, to taste (or preferred sweetener)
- Splash of vanilla
- pinch of sea salt
- 1 tsp butter (optional)
Gently melt the coconut oil. I put a bowl or small jar in a sauce pan of water and heat on the stove. It only takes a few minutes. Stir in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Spoon into a silicone mold, ice cube tray or whatever container you like, making sure to get some of the shredded coconut that settles to the bottom of the mixture in each spoonful.
Pop into the freezer for several minutes, until hardened. Then pop a few into your mouth and enjoy the nom.
Yield: 14 Noms (will vary depending on mold or container you use. Based on a mold with 14 heart shapes)
Decadence is allowed on the Trim Healthy Mama plan!
If you’re feeling very decadent, you could make my Dark Chocolate Coconut Cake in a Mug and garnish it with one of these Dark Chocolate Coconut Nom Noms.
It’s all good. It’s all on plan.
