Balancing Bites: A Sweet Treat


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 with a TEENY pinch of cayenne 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
