Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

MMMmmm… chocolate! Personally, can’t get enough! It was probably a contributing factor to reaching 210+ lbs! Well… that… and sugar in general… and lack of exercise… BUT, I loooooooooove chocolate!

And with these, I get it every single day!

I adapted the other Paleo recipe I had to allow for my sugar/chocolate cravings I may have- and this keeps them at bay! Having this little bit each day is enough to resist any binging- AND they’re healthy!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 Cup Almond Flour
  • 1/2 Cup Coconut Flour
  • 1/4 Cup Tapioca Flour
  • 1/2 cup non fat greek yogurt
  • 2 scoops chocolate protein powder
  • 1/4 cup Stevia in the raw
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 4 egg whites
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup 70% cocoa
  • 1 cup milk of choice

DIRECTIONS:

1. Combine all ingredients in mixing bowl and mix well.
2. Pour batter into a prepared muffin pan.
3. Bake at 350 for 30 minutes or until toothpick comes out clean.
4. Allow to cool in pan before transferring to wire rack.

And don’t think of these JUST for morning breakfast/snack- they also make an AWESOME dessert! I’ve adjusted the recipe to just make 2 (one for me and one for hubby) and as soon as they’re out of the oven and cool enough to touch, cut them in half, put them in a bowl, top with berries and 0% Greek yogurt… voila! A healthy dessert!
