Cravings. That is the hardest thing when you stop eating sugar. Sugar makes you crave candy, chocolate, and more sweets... So the best way to keep up our weekdays paleo lifestyle is to make substitute sources of energy and sweet taste.
I remember my grandmother making some german kugels from chocolate, sugar and loads of nuts. I did some small modifications and voila; paleo sweets! These are the perfect pre-workout treats or in-between-meals sources of energy.
1 dl (1/4 cup) pecans
1,5 dl (1/2 cup) walnuts
1,5 dl (1/2 cup) almonds
2 dl (2/3 cup) dates
2 tbsp cocoa
1 tbsp cinammon
0,5 dl honey
About 100 g coconut rasp for the coating (we used half roasted and half regular)
Roll 'em, roll'em, roll'em...
Use a food processor, blender or a knife and rough chop the nuts. Blend the dates (without pits) until they are a paste. Add honey and cocoa and mix well until homogenous. Put some coconut rasp on a tray and bake it until brown. Mix it with the unbaked cocounut flakes and put it in a small container.
Roll kugels of 20 g each and cover them with the coconut flakes mix.
Enjoy with no regrets!
