Julie Daniluk, R.H.N.

Raw chocolate has twice as many antioxidants as processed chocolate so look for it in your local health food store along with maca, ashwagandha and healthy nut butter choices, such as hemp, almond or hazelnut.

1/2 cup coconut butter
1/2 cup of honey
1/2 cup hemp butter (other nut butters work)
1/4 cup aswhaganda powder
1/4 cup maca
1-2 tbsp raw cocoa powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp unrefined sea salt

1. Mix all the dry ingredients together in a bowl. Slowly add in the butters and honey. Blend well.
2. Pour into a silicon mini-muffin tray or chocolate mold. Place in the freezer to set. Store in a cool place.
