Dessert is Good, Sweet

A dessert is defined as a sweet treat at the end of a meal. I love dessert! The sweet taste lingers in your mouth when taken in this manner, enough reason to eat it last. What is a sweet treat before a meal then? Or a sweet snack? They must just be good sweets. When taken before a meal, some say it digests better. Some say. For me though, I can eat some good sweets whenever I like, and feel good. As long as it's not too much, or too little :)

Some Good Sweet recipes:

Hazelnut Butter Cookies

2 cups raw hazelnuts
3 T raw butter
4 T unfiltered honey
3 T mesquite pod meal
3 T palm sugar
1 vanilla bean
1 tsp shilajit
1 tsp mucuna
1/4 tsp himalayan salt

Blend hazelnuts in a high power blender (use dry blade if available) to make a hazelnut flour. Then mix all ingredients by hand and mold into cookie shapes, or press into a shallow glass plate. Refrigerate 30 minutes or more. Makes roughly 16 cookies.

Blueberry Pudding

1 medium avocado
1 cup blueberries
2 T mesquite pod meal
1 T maca powder
3 T honey
1/2 cup raw milk or coconut water

Vanilla and Chocolate Bars

Blend almonds in a high power blender until you have almond flour. Chop cacao paste into small pieces and place in a food processor with almond flour, mucuna, 1/8 tsp himalayan salt, 3 T honey, and mesquite pod meal. Pulse until combined and sticky. Press into square shallow glass dish, set aside. Blend coconut butter, cashews, raw milk or coconut water, 3 T honey, vanilla and 1/8 tsp himalayan salt in high power blender until smooth.
