To my gorgeous followers....you need these coconut fat balls in your life!Why....because they are LOADED with healthy fats.Healthy fats are essential to a well-balanced diet.Too often in clinic I see clients who aren't consuming enough healthy fats for optimal health.These coconut fat balls make the perfect snack,这是一个简单而美味的方法来增加健康的脂肪含量在你的饮食。
3 reasons why healthy fats are essential for optimal health:
1。Fats help us digest fat-soluble vitamins such as A,D,E,and K and keep our brains,cells,hormones,tissues,hair,skin,and nails healthy.
2.Fat provides the structural component to many cell membranes which are essential for cellular development and carrying various messages (hormones) through our body quickly.
3.Fats can help prevent sugar cravings.The satiety receptors in the brain for fats work faster than sugar,因此，在摄入脂肪后，我们会更快地感到饱足和满足，并保持这种状态更长时间（你好，稳定的血糖水平）！!
- 1 cup shredded coconut (+ 1/3 cup for rolling)
- 1/2 cup coconut oil,melted
- 1/2 cup sunflower seeds (pumpkin or sunflower)
- ½ cup almonds
- ½ cup walnuts
- 2 tbsp chia seeds
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 4 medjool dates,pitted
- 1/3 cup almond milk
1. Add nuts and seeds into a food processor and process until it forms a flour like consistency (leave a few chunks if you prefer more crunch).
2.Add all the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend until you get a dough-like consistency.
3.Roll the dough into bite-sized balls,and roll those into the rest of your shredded coconut.
For a nut free version swap nuts with seeds.
你可以把这些球放在冷冻室或冰箱的容器里。I like them in the freezer and then take 1-2 balls out and let them thaw for a couple of minutes before consuming!YUM!!
