What looks like a chocolate, smells like chocolate but is a whole lot healthier than chocolate? These Fruity Choc Energy Bites!
I am a little late to jump onto using Raw Cocao Powder for cooking. I use it instead of cocoa powder. The flavour is a little bitter, like you would also find with a good quality dark chocolate. Raw cocao powder is full of health benefits. It is a powerful antioxidant and a great source of magnesium, it is also said to contains vitamins A,B,C, D and E. I now use it along with cocao nibs when adding chocolate to any baked goods. It is commonly available from health food stores and some good delis. You can read more about some of the properties and benefits here.
This little snack is so simple to make that once you do it once you will be able to easily make your own variations and flavour combinations to suit your family. The combinations are endless.
Speaking of family, be sure to get the kids involved in rolling these balls of fruity goodness, they’ll love it!
