Superfood Bon Bons

 

Superfood Bon bons

This is health food. Don’t believe me? Well it’s true. I made these for my sister-in-law last week as she was celebrating her birthday. It was her first birthday as a momma and as all new mommas know, they need all the help they can get,  especially if it comes wrapped in choc0late. Amazingness. I wanted to give the momma of my niece all the best things. I was also playing around with ways to sneak more bee pollen into my diet. Wrap it in chocolate and I’ll eat it.

These chocolates are made with 100 percent super food power. Nothing strayed me from that mission and they turned out a work of perfection. See, this is what I am talking about with the new tutorial that will be available on Thursday. Why not make eating healthy, medicinally potent foods in the most delicious ways possible.
Superfood Bon bons

What did I sneak inside these goodies to help power up the new momma and her little crying, pooping, sleeping, eating bundle of love? We’ve got raw cacao for the magnesium and antioxidants, there is some maca for re-regulating the hormones, some bee pollen for energy production, coconut for some short and medium chain saturated fats- awesome source of energy, a little hemp protein for, well protein, some raw honey for enzymes and sweetness, flax oil for the essential fats and some ground almond for added goodness. I even ground  up some goji and mixed that in there too. I sprinkled on some sea salt for a little extra minerals and lastly, dropped in some peppermint essential oil to aid digestion, and soothe a little. This is super powered healing. Food as the best medicine ever, my lovelies. This is chocolate as medicine. And this is delicious!Superfood Bon bons

Healthy Super-Powered Bon Bons
(You don’t need to have all of these ingredients by the way. Just use what you have!)

1/4 cup raw cacao powder
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/2 tsp bee pollen, ground fine
1 tsp maca
pinch of sea salt
6 drops, peppermint essential oil (food grade)
1 Tbs each of:

dried coconut, ground
hemp protein
goji berries, ground
almonds, ground
flax oil
raw honey

  • Over low heat, melt together roughly 1/2 of the the coconut oil and cacao powder
  • Using a small ice cube tray with rubber bottoms or a flexible candy mold tray, scoop about 1 Tsp of chocolate into each compartment.
  • Transfer tray to freezer for mixture to harden
  • In a food processor, blend together the coconut, hemp, maca goji, almond, flax, pollen and honey and 4 drops of peppermint oil. You may wish to add more honey if you like it sweeter
  • Once evenly processed, remove chocolate tray from freezer and roll out small amount of filling mixture. If too loose, you can play this mix in the freezer for a brief time to harden it. Place a small amount of filling into each compartment.
  • Melt the other half of coconut oil and raw cacao together and scoop with a teaspoon over the first layer of chocolate and filling until filling is covered.
  • Sprinkle with sea salt

  1. Where do you get food grade essential oils?

      I use Young Living. I do also sell them and will be adding more to my shop soon- but you could always log in and sign up and order away. They are amazing. Another great source is Living Libations.

    Wow, those look amazing! Where can you find bee pollen though? I've never seen it at the co-op, but it might be hiding there somewhere.
    • Meghan Telpner said…
      Its usually in the supplements section, or fridge. Ask the peeps where they keep it. Any good co-op will have!

    I was over spending a little quality time with my above mentioned sweet granddaughter Mia, giving my daughter in law a little break. I was putting some things away in the fridge and spotted a plate of very delicious gourmet looking chocolates. Of course I had to have one and not tell. Now I find out they weren't just any old chocolate treat but nutrition filled, and tasted amazing. Thanks Meg.

    how do I grind the goji berries? and for that matter the almonds. I don't have a vitamix
    • Meghan Telpner said…
      I grind those goodies in a coffee grinder, or even a food processor would work.
  10. renee said…
    Thanks. I'll be making those good-looking healthy candies tomorrow. Renee

    Oh no, Meghan, this is just embarrassing. I'm drooling. Tell me, will there be more uses for bee pollen in the tutorial? Like you, I have been having a problem getting a hang of eating it, and I have this huge bag and I just don't wanna throw it away, after all, it could have nurtured little bees... I'm going to try and score one of your free tutorials but I'll probably trip over the time zone difference so I may just have to whip out the credit card anyways...:-). All the best.
  12. Melissa said…
    Wow..as you were reading off the ingredients you put in the bon bons, I nearly drooled all over myself...lol! These sound beyond amazing...plus you shared the recipe with us? That's truly awesome! I need to pick up some of the ingredients to give these a try. Thanks:)

    Can I have you as my sister-in-law? :)
  15. Margaret said…
    Meghan! I am definitely buying your new tutorial not only because I am extremely interested in its content and convinced of its highest quality, but also to support you and the great job you have been doing as a nutritionist and blogger. I have already said that in one of my emails to you, but I believe there's never too much you can compliment on somebody's great job and... last but not least ..you really are generous with posting all these great recipes without charging a dime ...thanks for sharing your knowledge with us.
  16. Danielle said…
    WOW! Nice work, Meghan! These chocolates sound divine and nourishing, and they look great, to boot! Just throw some edible gold leaf on there and you'll give Godiva a run for their money (gold has nutritional value, right?). Thanks for sharing-- your sister-in-law must be one happy birthday girl!

    Who would know by looking at these that they were fool of goodness!!! I've made raw balls and coat them in chocolate and my son loves them. These will be a nice treat as well. Hey easter is coming up, I think I will bring these to my in-laws. Yes!
