My husband has been paleo for a year now, ever since he started Crossfit. I saw the results, but I didn't think I could do it. Low and Behold, I set foot in a crossfit "box" for the first time one month ago, and I have been there four times a week since. Religiously. I have never been one to work out consistently, but this is such an incredible challenge for me, that I think I keep going just to prove to myself that I can do more.
To accompany the work out, I have been attempting to stick to the Paleo diet. But because I cannot stay away from sweets, I had to indulge, and I made these treats.
1/2 cup almond flour
1/2 cup shredded coconut
1 tablespoon honey
2 teaspoons vanilla
1/2 dark chocolate chips
1 cup almond butter
1 tablespoon coconut oil
1/2 cup dark chocolate chips
1 tablespoon coconut oil (melted)
-Mix all ingredients in a bowl and dissolve until you get doughy consistency
-Create round balls
-Put in freezer for 15 minutes
-For coating, place chocolate chips and coconut oil in the microwave for one minute, then stir. Do this right before taking the balls out of the freezer.
-Dip balls in melted chocolate with a toothpick and put back in freezer for 15 minutes.
