If you’re trying to boost your health profile, improve your nutrient intake and still enjoy food, fear not! Chocolate can definitely be a diet staple! Using quality chocolate to make healthy snacks not only keeps you fueled but also curbs any sweet cravings. These chocolate banana “fudge” bites fall perfectly into that category.
When trying to improve nutrition, most people begin to limit their chocolate intake. And rightly so. Commercial bought chocolate is loaded with processed sugar. However, under the right circumstances, chocolate can be part of a healthy diet.
The trick is to ensure you’re making your own chocolate using a quality ingredient: organic cacao powder.
Cacao powder is one of the least processed forms of chocolate and thus has a bit of a bitter taste. When combined with a quality sweetener though (in this case banana and pure maple syrup), cacao powder becomes a delicious, chocolate indulgence.
Because cacao powder is so minimally processed, it retains much of it’s nutrient profile. It’s high in magnesium, iron, zinc and fiber – many things we don’t get enough of in our daily diets.
So not only do you get to retain your chocolate addiction, but you also get a ton of health benefits too! Which makes this simple, no bake snack perfect to add into your diet.
These chocolate banana “fudge” bites contain only real food ingredients, are naturally sweetened and make a great pop-in-your-mouth snack.
Unlike many snacks, these bites have a great blend of complex carbohydrates and healthy fats. This means that the energy release will be stable- no crazy energy crashes after eating them!
For busy families (or because you just love chocolate!) they make a tasty snack to have on hand if you’re running out the door.
