Love Me Some Coconut and Cacao!

I went to a healthy recipe night recently and came away with something close to this recipe. I tweaked it just a tad.  Packed full of anti-oxidants, healthy fats and protein, this treat is not only heart-healthy, it's YUMMY!!

Coconutty Cacao Cups

1 cup coconut oil (soft, not melted) (I used 2/3 cup coconut oil and 1/3 cup of coconut butter since I did not have enough coconut oil)
2/3 cup raw Almond butter (or Macadamia Nut butter)
1/4 cup raw honey
1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1 TBSP of Maca
1 TBSP organic vanilla extract

Hemp Hearts
Himalayan Pink Salt

Optional topping: You can also take 1 tsp each of chia, flax, hemp, pumpkin, sesame, and sunflower seeds, grind them in your coffee grinder and sprinkle them on top to add a superfood punch.

Mix coconut oil, nut butter, raw honey, raw cacao and vanilla with a spoon.  No need for a blender.
Spoon into lined muffin pan cups.

Sprinkle tops with pink salt and hemp seed and freeze.
