Say HELLO to what’s become my new favorite ‘treat’ – Raspberry filled Frosted Mini Wheats that have been topped with sugar free dark chocolate. So GOOD!
Nothing fancy here, just Kellogg’s Raspberry frosted mini wheats that I topped with a little melted Amber Lyn sugar free dark chocolate!

‘No Bake’ German Chocolate PROTEIN Bites – Quick & Simple!
I whipped these up today in honor of #FingerFoodFriday’s COCONUT theme!
6 pitted medjool dates (soaked in water for an hour)
1 scoop(30grams) Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder
1/4cup + (1tbsp for topping) of reduced fat unsweetened coconut – divided
1/4cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/2tbsp Better Body Foods coconut oil
1 Amber Lyn Chocolates SUGAR FREE dark chocolate bite
Place all ingredients into a food processor and mix until well combined. A spatula will be your best friend with this recipe! Keep scraping down the sides until the dates are all chopped up. Roll into balls and then lightly flatten into squares. Place the tablespoon of shredded coconut in a small bowl and dip the tops of the squares into it. Place the chocolate square in a zip lock bag and microwave for about 30-45 seconds until melted. Snip off the corner of the bag & squeeze onto bites! Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
French Toast Cannoli’s! Only 295 calories for all 3! YUM
3 pieces of Sara Lee 45 calorie bread
1 egg white
1/2oz unsweetened almond milk
1/4tsp Better Body Foods Organic pure vanilla extract
Sugar free chocolate sauce/powdered sugar for topping
21grams mascarpone cheese
50grams of skim Ricotta cheese (could reduce macros more with fat free)
6grams of TruVibe Organics cacao nibs
2packets of stevia
1/4tsp Better Body Foods Organic pure vanilla extract
Pinch of cinnamon
Mix together all of the filling ingredients in a small bowl and set aside. In a separate small bowl mix the egg white, milk, vanilla & cinnamon together and lightly beat with a fork. Using a rolling pin, flatten each piece of bread and cut out a circle. Dip each circle into the egg mixture and cook over medium heat for 2 or so minutes per side. Stuff each piece of toast with the filling (I secured mine with a tooth pick) and top with a little sugar free chocolate sauce & powdered sugar!
Maca & Goji Chocolate Avocado PROTEIN Truffles!
I feel like all I really need to say about these is ‘CHOCOLATE TRUFFLES’, those 2 words alone would have me! But these aren’t just any chocolate truffles….these are Avocado chocolate truffles! I rolled half of them in ground up TruVibe Organics Goji berries and the other half have been rolled in TruVibe Organics Maca powder & then topped with Cocao Nibs, AMAZING! I promise you!
1 large avocado (mine weighed in at 125grams out of skin)
110grams of semi sweet chocolate chips (1 cup)
30grams of Plant Fusion chocolate protein powder (1 scoop)
1tsp of Better Body Foods organic pure vanilla extract
1/4cup of TruVibe Goji berries (+1/2tbsp of flour of choice)
2tbsp TruVibe Maca powder
1/2tbsp TruVibe Organic Cocao nibs (+1/2tsp agave nectar)
TruVibe Organics Superfood products can be purchased here: http://truvibeorganics.com/
Place avocado in a food processor and blend until smooth. Next add in the protein powder and vanilla extract and continue to blend until well mixed. It will be pretty thick & dry at this point. Remove from food processor and place the mixture into a medium sized bowl.
Melt the chocolate chips in a microwave safe dish in the microwave for 1-1.5 minutes, stirring every 20 or so seconds. It took me just over a minute in my microwave to melt the chocolate. Pour melted chocolate on top of the avocado mixture and stir until well combined. Cover with plastic wrap and place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours to firm up.
Add the goji berries with about 1/2tbsp of flour(to keep from sticking together – I used gluten free oat flour) and blend until a fine powder. Remove dough from the refrigerator and roll into balls of desired size, placing on parchment paper. Add the maca powder & goji powder into two shallow dishes/plates and roll balls into them, using your fingers to smooth all over the outer surface. Take the maca powder balls & dip the very top part into a little agave nectar and then into the cocao nibs. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator.
*NEW PRODUCT SPOTLIGHT – Sweet Spreads*
I am the queen of online shopping! Allow me to introduce you to my most recent find – Sweet Spreads Coconutter which is an all natural flavored coconut butter.
I had seen many different people posting about these all over Instagram. So of course, I had to try it! OH MY GOODNESS, I had no idea what my taste buds were in for – WOW! I picked up the sampler pack which came with 6 smaller jars of their White Chocolate, Cinnamon Roll, Maple Pancake, Chocolate Brownie, Dark Chocolate Mint & Vanilla Cupcake (which is what you see on top of my blondie in this picture!). It was seriously hard for me to pick a favorite but I think I’m leaning towards the Dark Chocolate Mint! It reminded me of either a thin mint cookie or Andes mint.
If you’ve never heard of this company than I highly encourage you to check them out! From what I could tell they are based out of Miami, FL and their products can be purchased online here: http://www.sweetspreads.com/
