DO YOU EVER HAVE A DAY WHEN THINGS JUST DON’T GO RIGHT? It was one of those days! It’s just the type of day that pushes you into wanting something decadent, but still within the realm of being healthy using only whole, real ingredients for added nutrients and to work towards good gut health.
May I introduce to you my latest creation!?!?!…THE CHOCOLATE MOCHA ALMOND FUDGE COOKIE SANDWICH!!! Get ready for an EXPLOSION OF GOODNESS for a cool, rich treat on a hot summer day.
This snacky dessert packs a natural sweetener: dates! If you aren’t already using these in place of sugar, it’s time to get started! Dates are a great source of vitamins, minerals, and fiber.
What’s more, the cookies’ base is coconut flour and oatmeal for added fiber protein, and heart-healthy fats as well as almond butter to bind the cookies and to provide additional fiber and protein as well as magnesium (to support healthy metabolic functioning). Don’t stop there!…Finally, I threw in Purium’s MVP Chocolate Shake mix for a rich, chocolatey flavor and added protein! WOW! You are going to be blown away, and your family will LOVE you forever!!!!
