  • Primal "Candy"



    Okay, so this may not be exactly primal, but it is low carb and sugar free and really tasty! Since I've been off sugar for about a month now, my sweet cravings are going away, but last night I wanted something a little extra.


    So I whipped up a batch of this

    Blend together:


    Melt 2-3 TBS coconut oil over low heat

    Add 1-2 TBS unsweetened cocoa powder

    mix in 1 TBS almond butter (optional)

    1 TBS almond or coconut flour

    Stevia to taste


    Add

    Unsweetened shredded coconut


    Melt first 5 ingredients together over low heat til combined - pour just a bit into muffins tins. Spoon a little shredded coconut, mix in the muffin tin to combine.


    Put in the freezer for about 5 minutes or so. They pop out with a knife quite easily. Makes about 6.


    Voila! Almond Joys, sorta

    Yummm!!! I'll have to try them. A fav of mine has been almond chocolate dip, which I use for dipping apples in. 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp cocoa, 1 tsp cocoa (or more), 1/2 tsp maple syrup. Haven't tried it with stevia cuz I'm willing to take the 1/2 tsp cheat

        Fruit has been my candy. Grapes, strawberries, and cantaloupe make an awesome combo. I have it handy for whenever I feel the need for something sweet. I haven't really desired any other form of candy.

          Let's not forget watermelon! I'm seeing the first melons at the supermarket, but they're usually pretty tasteless in May. Once they actually taste like something and the weather heats up, I'm pretty happy scarfing half a watermelon over the course of a day.


          That recipe sounds good, I've got to try it. I've been doing stuff with coconut flour, but always cooked. It's OK raw, huh?

            Well, this is primarily with coconut oil. The almond or coconut flour is actually optional- but it's not crucial.

                Just made another batch tonight! Awesome! They're like peanut butter cups w/out the peanut butter. Almost the same consistency.

                  Would the mix be suitable for coating frozen berries? I've used plain coconut milk for this in the past which works ok, but adding a little plain cocoa sounds good.

                    Hmm.. might. Keep in mind that this concoction hardens because of the coconut oil. Might be an interesting variation for fruit though.

                      found this on a raw site, would use raw honey instead of agave any day. would also use prunes instead of dates to keep sugar down.

                      I also bought some raw chocolate truffles from oneluckyduck.com, they are really high quality and worth the very occasional splurge

                        Ann Louise Gittleman's book "Get the Sugar Out" has a lot of sugar-free, sweetener-free recipes for satisfying sugar-cravings. E.g., frozen grapes as a substitute for hard candies.

                            My primal candy is creamed coconut. Why did I ever find this? I'm eating like 1000+ calories of it daily. It's heavenly.

                              How do you make that?
