If you are looking for not only a beautiful book for your mom for Mother’s Day, but 100 Delicious, Energizing, and Nutrient-Dense Recipes, you need to check out “SUPERFOOD SNACKS“, by Julie Morris. This cookbook is filled with helpful information. I have learned what my body actually craves, the good fats, and the delicious recipes found in this book.
Do you ever crave a salty snack? Our body is actually craving Minerals, especially calcium which can be found in Kale, Sesame Seeds, or Chia Seeds. My weakness is Chocolate, which is my body actually craving Magnesium, Vitamin B12 and B6, antioxidants, and serotonin. I am now going to have Cacao and blueberries on hand when I crave Chocolate or just make up the recipe for Banana Bonbons (recipe to follow).
What a great gift for the mom who enjoys cooking, but also delights in making something delicious and nutritious. Buy this hardcover book today at www.amazon.com for only $13.95.
Banana Bon Bons Recipe
Makes about 24 Bon Bons
Ingredients: 3 Frozen Bananas
1 batch Superfood Chocolate
1/3 c. solid cacao butter chopped into shavings
5 Tbs. cacao powder
Dash Sea Salt
2 Tbs. Agave Nectar
1 Tbs. Coconut Oil
2 Tbs. Hemp Seeds (optional)
Slice the bananas into 1 inch rounds and place them back into the freezer until ready for assembly.
In a small saucepan over low heat add cacao butter and stir to slowly melt into a liquid. Remove immediately from heat. Add cacao powder and salt to the mixture and whisk. Whisk in agave nectar. Keep in warm pan. If the mixture solidifies put back over low heat.
Add coconut oil, whisk to combine. Remove from heat. Place Hemp Seeds into a small bowl. Line a plate or tray that will fit in your freezer with parchment paper.
Working quickly put a banana on the tongs of a fork and place it in the chocolate. Roll around until it is coated, remove from fork onto tray. Lightly sprinkle with Hemp Seeds. Repeat with remaining pieces. Return bonbons to freezer for 20 minutes and then serve. Bonbons may be stored in a resealable bag for up to 2 months. Enjoy!
