These Chocolate Cookies are the perfect alternative to your favorite nutty treat with a chocolate twist. The combination of antioxidant-rich raw cacao with creamy cashew butter is a great satisfying treat. The high protein and healthy fat content found in these cookies will even keep you full, so you won’t find yourself emptying the cookie jar anytime soon.

My homemade healthy Nutella version also has just half the calories of store-bought Nutella, and the surprise ingredient: black beans, which are loaded with protein and good for you fibre

Chocolate Chia Pudding

This Chocolate Chia Pudding has only six ingredients –chia seeds, cacao powder, coconut milk, vanilla stevia, water, and salt.  Despite their tiny size, chia seeds are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. They are loaded with fiber, protein, Omega-3 fatty acids and various micronutrients. This recipe uses stevia rather than maple syrup or honey to cut down on sugar.

Their small size, also pack well in lunches.
