You can guess, I decided to try it out. I am not great at it yet. But I feel pretty good when I stick to it.
I do still have sweet cravings. Not like before. But I decided to make some sweet, protein packed snacks to stash for those sugar addict moments. I made this recipe up, and I have to say, it's tasty. I wasn't planning to roll the finished candies in coconut, but I had to do it so they didn't look like ... you know.
Paleo candy 1
1/2 c shredded unsweetened coconut
1/2 c sliced raw almonds
1/2 c sunflower seeds
1/4 c peanut butter
3 tbsp raw unprocessed honey (sister M2, maybe you could substitute maple syrup?)
1/2 c raisins or other dried fruit
2 tbsp cocoa powder
Additional coconut for coating candies
Place nuts, seeds, and coconut in blender or food processor and process until mixture resembles medium to fine breadcrumbs. Mix with remaining ingredients. Shape into 1" balls using a scoop or two teaspoons. Roll in coconut. Separate with mini muffin papers and cover tightly. Store in fridge.
