Have you guys seen these morsels floating around pinterest? You know how we love coconut and chocolate together and anything that pairs the words ‘skinny’ and ‘treat’ is right up our alley.Β They are made with coconut oil and cocoa powder. The maple syrup appeases your sweet tooth, but with far fewer calories (and unpronounceable ingredients) than a candy bar. Plus, they are perfect bite size portions- win win.

1/2 cup coconut oil, melted
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1/4 cup almond butter (you can also use peanut butter)
2 TBS real maple syrup (or honey)
1/2 tsp vanilla extract


Mix all ingredients together until smooth, pour mixture into a silicone ice cube tray or a mini muffin tin (I also used cupcake liners so that removing them from the tray would be easier). Freeze until mixture has hardened. Pop them out of the tray and store in an airtight container in the freezer or fridge because they will melt at room temperature.

Careful with this skinny treat though, the beckon from the fridge and it’s hard to say no! πŸ™‚ They are quite literally the perfect skinny treat!
