Balancing Bites: A Sweet Treat for Mama

Updated: Jun 9


Without the Processed Sugar....

Small Batch Wellness has a favorite sweet for Mamas that is both nutrient dense as well as sweet tooth satisfying. Pretty easy to make and rich with foods (plant medicine!) that are supportive to balancing a new mother. Quite satiating with all these lovely and healthful fats.


Base Layer:

3 Medjool Dates, pitted

⅛ Cup Goji Berries

½ Cup Melted Coconut Oil

1 ¼ Cup Raw Nuts (ideal combo of walnut, cashew, almond, hazelnut & pistachio)

¼ tsp Pink Himalayan Salt (slightly less)

¼ tsp Mixed Warming Spices (heaping): All spice, ground ginger, nutmeg & cinnamon)

⅛ Cup Ground Flax



Top Layer:

½ Cup Melted Coconut Oil

½ Cup Raw Cacoa

3 Tbs Bees Knees Spiced Maple (regular REAL maple will be fine too)

Pinch Pink Himalayan Salt

¼ Cup Water

¼ Cup Peanut Butter (optional)

Sprinkle Raw Coconut (optional)



Method:

  1. Combine all items in the Base Layer in food processor and pulse together.

  2. Once it starts to stick together, scoop out and press into a small baking pan lined with parchment paper (or parchment cupcake liners). You can play with how thick or thin you might like this layer by adjusting the pan size

  3. Once pressed into pan, you can add an optional layer of peanut butter to the top. Work with warm peanut butter so it’s easy to spread

  4. Mix together the items for the Top Layer with a wisk. Either use a warmed glass bowl or work pretty quickly so the mixture stays on the warm side so it’s easy to pour.

  5. Put water in small saucepan, add mixture. Working quickly to combine and make smooth.

  6. Pour top layer over base layer to cover completely. Again, feel free to play with the thickness here. Some love a thick cacao layer and some like a hint of it.

  7. Pop in freezer for 20 minutes. Then you can cut or move to fridge.
