Need Your Fix in Sweets? Try Paleo Candy Bars!
Experiencing those cravings for a sweet treat? It’s possible to indulge your sweet tooth while not experiencing any guilt with paleo candy bars!
This month’s recipe is featuring paleo candy bars on Paleo Plan’s online recipe guide! The Paleo Diet thrives on consuming fresh foods and eliminating processed foods. Of course, keeping a diet would not be worthwhile if we cannot add some guilty pleasure treats once in a while.
How do you make paleo candy bars?
When you walk down the grocery aisles, be on the lookout for:
- Coconut oil
- Cocoa powder
- Ground nuts
- Unsweetened shredded coconut
- Raw honey
- Parchment paper
Paleo Plan gives a step by step basis of how to craft these delicious treats, which involves 15 minutes of cooking and 20 minutes of freezing. First off, you melt the honey and coconut oil in a saucepan. Once the oil is completely melted, you add the cocoa, nuts and coconut into the mix and pour the mixture onto the parchment paper on a small baking sheet. Finally, you refrigerate your creation.
The end result: A mouthwatering candy bar filled with natural ingredients.
While these treats are not processed, it is important to consume modestly. These treats should not replace other natural meals you need to maintain a healthy body. Additionally, do not forget to clean your smile to avoid plaque buildup and cavities.
