I have been collaborating more and more with a friend and colleague Registered Holistic Nutritionist Krista Parr of Root To Fruit Nutrition. We are doing a community talk this week, and she inspired me to try out her famous fertility fat bombs. I have seen a bunch of variations on this theme with the increased popularity of the ketogenic diet, and overall focus on increasing healthy fats in our diets. I tried them for the first time this week, and I am sold! This particular recipe contains maple syrup but if you are sticking to a keto diet, you would want to sub in stevia, erythritol, or another liquid sweetener of your choice.
1 avocado (about 1/2 to 3/4 cup), mashed with a fork until smooth
2 tablespoons coconut oil
1 heaping tablespoon almond butter
11/2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
4 tablespoons raw cacao powder
Pinch of sea salt
Melt the coconut oil, almond butter, maple syrup, and cacao powder in a small pot over low heat. Remove from heat and mix in the avocado, and sea salt. Taste and add a tiny bit more maple syrup, if necessary.
Spoon into silicone mini muffin cups by the tablespoonful and freeze 30 mins. Paper mini muffin cups work too.
Store in freezer for best texture.
