No Heat or Guilt Required With These Decadent Chocolate Bites

The following post was originally featured on The Hummusapien and written by Alexis Joseph, MS, RD, LD, who is part of POPSUGAR Select Fitness.

The time is upon us in which the great pumpkin obsession swiftly transforms into the great peppermint obsession.

It’s normal. November becomes December. Fall becomes winter. Pumpkin becomes peppermint. You know and love these things.

It’s time for another edition of the #MakeYourMove campaign I’m participating in with Kohl’s! I promised to deliver easy, delish, plant-based recipes that the whole fam will adore, and this holiday recipe does NOT disappoint. Let’s get into it!

I have a wild, crazy beautiful love affair with these Lemon Coconut and Pumpkin Protein No-Bake Bites. They’re moist and perfect and dreamy and begging to be introduced to their chocolatey cousin. Because everyone needs a chocolate cousin, no? I get asked fairly often about which cacao I use. I buy this one from Amazon in bulk because it’s raw and organic and humbelievable, and for those reasons and more, I literally use it every single day (usually in the form of this blueberry cacao smoothie, duh).

So why do I put cacao in nearly everything? Welp, in short, cacoa is a dream superfood. I’m like a walking cacao advertisement. It’s oozing with mood-boosting flavanols that give you the warm and fuzzies, quite literally.

To make cacao, hand-selected Peruvian cacao beans are milled at low temperature and separated from the cacao butter without the use of any harsh chemicals or solvents, thus protecting the precious nutrients, antioxidants, and flavah flaves. Cacao is one of the best sources of age-defying and disease-fighting antioxidants out there. It’s also a good source of theobromine, a bioactive compound that improves blood flow. Plants are amazing, aren’t they?

It also tastes incredible. I always accidentally but totally on purpose spill some on my fingers so I can lick it off. Not ashamed.

Back to the bite babies! This Cuisinart 8-cup food processor is one of my favorite kitchen appliances and it’s essential for this recipe in order to process the dates. I use it all the time for no-bake bites, veggie burgers, sauces, and more. It will be your best bud in the kitch in no time, guaranteed. I store these bites in my beloved glass pyrex Tupperware. If you use your finger to scoop out the batter, try using this soft grip spatula instead. It’s everything. You can refrigerate them or make a double batch and freeze leftovers.

Even though there may not be any.

When it comes to protein, my go-to is Vega Protein + Greens, or Skoop B-Strong. Be sure to pay attention to the gram measurement since the size of the scoop varies with different brands.

Step aside, peppermint crinkle cookies. I double chickpea dare you to serve these bad boys at your next holiday party. But zero judgements if you want to make a triple batch and hoard them all for yourself.

If You’re a Fan of Sleep, This White Chocolate Raspberry Overnight Chia Oatmeal Is a Dream Come True

Are you looking to make your morning routine a little less stressful? If so, you’ll definitely want to try this overnight oatmeal recipe from our friends at Sprouted Routes!

This overnight chia oatmeal recipe is based on two breakthroughs I’ve had recently: 1. that white chocolate is little more than a secret magical ingredient (I’ll get to that later) and milk and 2. that chia makes overnight oatmeal a million times creamier and better, and oatmeal makes chia pudding a million times heartier and more textured and that they shall henceforth live together in harmony and be called choatmeal. Yes, choatmeal. I’ve seeded it in urban high schools across the country and a few of the Kardashian’s cell phones, so keep an eye out for it to become the new cool word in 4 ¨C 5 months or so. Choatmeal will be on fleek. If you don’t know what that means, your life is probably better for it.

So what’s the secret ingredient, you ask? It’s cacao butter, probably previously known to you as that ingredient in the lotion you slather on your dry elbows and hands during the cold winter months. Let’s learn about our new little friend, shall we?

Cacao Butter

Cacao butter is the pressed oil of the cacao bean (responsible for cacao nibs and cacao powder). To extract the cacao butter, you essentially press the nibs (which are broken up cacao beans), to separate the oil from the fiber. It’s used in almost all chocolate recipes, which are typically cacao butter, cacao or cocoa powder, and some kind of sweetener (or milk, if you’re making milk chocolate). Like cacao, which is long recognized as a superfood, cacao butter is rich in antioxidants, as well as oleic acid, which has been shown to reduce the risk of heart disease, and theombromine, which raises energy and alertness levels.

When I discovered that white chocolate is made from a simple mix of cacao butter, milk, some kind of sweetener and vanilla, and I knew I had to try to incorporate it’s silky sweet flavor in a recipe. Choatmeal (ah, it feels so natural) felt like an easy place to start, and guys ¡ª it worked out so much better than I even expected. This breakfast is sweet but not too sweet, rich, creamy. It tastes, seriously, exactly like white chocolate. Layered in with the juicy strawberries ¡ª it’s so divine, I can’t even tell you. It feels like cheating to call it breakfast.

Paleo Dark Chocolate Bacon Bark

If you’re looking for something sweet and salty to snack on that’s Paleo-friendly, you must try this dark chocolate bacon bark recipe from our friends at PaleoHacks.

Once you try this Paleo Bacon Bark you’ll find that bacon and dark chocolate are a match made in heaven. The dark chocolate is sweet and rich, while the bacon is crisp and salty. The little touch of maple syrup and unrefined sea salt enhances the sweet-salty contrast for an amazing treat!

Plus, the chocolatey recipe is so incredibly easy to make. Just melt the chocolate and sprinkle on the bacon and salt, freeze, and enjoy!

To keep the sugar at a minimum, use a low-sugar bacon and as dark of a chocolate as you like. I used 85 percent cacao, but 90 percent would be delicious as well thanks to the maple syrup that adds sweetness.

For the bacon, we recommend buying pastured bacon at your local meat market; it’s a much better place to find high-quality meats than the grocery store. Get an unrefined salt, pink or gray, for making this Paleo Bacon Bark. They pack more nutrients and offer a fuller flavor.

Since the chocolate is not tempered and does not have additives, it will melt quickly after you’ve made the bacon bark. The simple solution to this is to keep it in the refrigerator in an airtight container. If you like it very crisp, you could even store your Paleo Bacon bark in the freezer (something we love to do with Paleo Peppermint Patties).
