Here are the reasons why I LOVE this recipe and I’m so excited to share it with you today:
It’s made with healthy ingredients that are really good for you: medjool dates, pumpkin seed butter and coconut oil.
It will satisfy your cravings if you are on a restricted diet due to food allergies, because it is naturally sweet and contains healthy fats. That’s what makes it taste so yummy.
You can make a big batch and it will keep in the freezer for weeks. It’s like a gift to yourself that keeps on giving!
It is so satisfying that you can’t eat too much of it at once, it really will last you a while!
It’s chocolatey and you can make vanilla, orange, or mint versions.
It will give you an energy boost – perfect for that mid-afternoon slump.
It doesn’t contain any allergens. Ideal for those with multiple allergies. It’s also vegan.
Hopefully that’s convinced you to give it a try! I was thinking of all you breastfeeding mamas of babies with allergies out there who really deserve a treat. Let me know what you think! Here’s the recipe:
