Is this a bar? A cookie? Frankly, I don’t know what to call it but it is delicious, and dare I say- healthy? It uses cacao powder which is a super-food and the sweetener comes from ground dates.
Chocolate spice candies (Paleo and vegan):
2 cups of melted coconut oil
1 1/2 cup of dates
3 cups shredded coconut
1 1/2 cup cacao powder (or cocoa powder)
1 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg
Blend the dates and coconut oil in a food processor (or your Vitamix) until the dates are chopped to fine pieces. Next, mix all dry ingredients together separately. Add coconut oil/dates to the dry ingredients and mix thoroughly. Fill ice cube trays with the “dough” and freeze.
I could eat these all day long!
