Can you say YUM!

These alkaline forming truffles are really delicious ~ they are loaded with protein, fiber, good fats and of course the antioxidant properties of chocolate … and they are sugar free. These are not recommended during our HCG Diet Program. However, they make a perfect special treat when the program is over.  These are a true favorite in our household and in our office.  Seriously, this is the best chocolate I have yet to have.  Delicious.  Try it.


Bites of Bliss Ingredients

¼ cup high quality coconut oil

2 ounces 100% cacao unsweetened chocolate (or a very high % dark chocolate)

¼ cup Vanilla flavoredhigh quality protein powder (hemp or rice is best)

2 tbsp. raw cacao powder ½ cup finely chopped raw almonds

¼ cup dried, unsweetened coconut shredded ¼ cup finely chopped dates or raisins

½ cup almond butter

1 tsp. liquid stevia

1 tsp pure vanilla extract


Method of Making Bites of Bliss


Place coconut oil and dark chocolate bits in a double boiler; stir frequently and when melted set pan aside.


In a large mixing bowl, combine protein powder, cacao powder, almonds, coconut & dates. Stir well.


Add almond butter and mix thoroughly until it forms a crumble.


Add stevia and vanilla extract to chocolate mixture and stir.


Transfer the chocolate mixture to the dry mixture. Stir it all together thoroughly.


Use a teaspoon to scoop and fill mini muffin liners with the mixture. You can also spread mixture out in a thin layer on a cookie sheet. Place in freezer until it hardens for 20-30 minutes. You can use a cookie cutter to make shapes with the chocolate that hardened in the thin layer.


Keep refrigerated.




Get Creative …

You can add in extra goodies and modify the recipe a bit.  In our last batch, we added in goji berries, chia seeds and hemp seeds.  You may need to add in a bit more almond buter and chocolate mixture to keep the balance of wet and dry ingredients so adjust accordingly.


Have Fun!
