I made these for my Food & Body Image Group Member tonight, and they were a hit!!!  Of course I’m not one to keep a secret about food, so as soon as I got home, I posted the recipe!  Even my hubby and toddler were raving about them! Yay! Client and Family Member Approved! And definitely Roz Approved!  😉

8 tbsp organic coconut oil
1/2 cup organic cacao powder,
2 TBSP raw organic honey

pinch of Himalayan pink salt
splash of vanilla
Dry Ingredients:

1 cup raw pecans

1/3 cup raw hemp hearts

  1. Melt all wet ingredients  in a warm pan to blend to a smooth paste and set aside.
  2. Separately blend the following dry ingredients in a blender or a food processor.
  3. Mix dry ingredients into chocolate blend, while mixing in  4 drops of Young Living Peppermint Essential Oil.
  4.  Place cocoa powder  and/or unsweetened shredded coconut on a plate, and with wet hands, roll ingredients into small balls, roll on the cocoa powder/shredded coconut and place on a pan.
  5. Refrigerate or freeze!  Enjoy!
