Sneaky Chocolates to Beat Your Sugar Cravings

Here’s a treat for you – Sneaky Green Chocolates that are not only gorgeous, filling and free from processed rubbish.  But they are actually good for you.  

This means that you could in theory eat as many as you like.

But you won’t want to as they’re actually quite filling.

Just one or two of these little chocolates will be enough to beat sugar cravings and finish off your meal.  The best thing about them is that you can actually sneak some greens into them so your kids will eat some green goodness too.  Trust me, you can’t taste the greens at all!  The greens are optional, so don’t worry if it’s not quite your cup of tea.

Most people seriously overdo the sugar at Christmas and special occasions.  These chocolates will help you painlessly and effortlessly wean yourself of the sweet stuff.  Whenever you feel the sugar cravings striking, just grab one of these from the fridge or the freezer and stop yourself reaching for the stuff that’s going to harm your health.

I have been trying to heal a tooth infection naturally without resorting to antibiotics so I couldn’t indulge in any sweet stuff at all over Christmas as I was avoiding sugar.  I then read that raw honey was great at healing infections so added some to my tooth and sure enough it felt a lot better.

So on Christmas day I didn’t want to feel deprived and made myself a batch of these chocolates.  I knew that both the Coconut Oil and the Raw Honey were doing wonders for healing my mouth so I had no guilt whatsoever!

Here’s some photos of my kids on Christmas day.  I look so tired because they had both been up for the last 2 nights crying with colds, and noisy storms with 70mph winds.

  1. Never would have thought to add greens powder to chocolates but I love the idea :) Happy holidays Katherine!

  2. Yum!!!!

    Sounds great! I made date syrup for the first time today and wonder if you could use it instead of honey in this recipe?

  4. This is a great recipe! I have made it before without the green powder, and I have added almond halves at another time, but I would absolutely love to include the green powder too. I am still searching for some in my local grocery stores.
    A question, though. I was thinking of substituting peanut butter for the coconut oil to increase the protein and the fiber, do you think I could substitute 1/4 cup peanut butter for 1/4 cup coconut oil? Or should I maybe use 1/8 cup of peanut butter and coconut oil each?
