This four ingredient recipe can satisfy a sweet tooth with a treat that is actually good for your skin. These wholesome bites are low sugar, high protein and full of collagen powder, a substance that keeps skin looking young and plump.
Peanut butter contains high amounts of Vitamin C and Vitamin E that slow down the ageing process. Its rich source of antioxidants also adds to your skin's health and reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Collagen Powder may help slow the aging of your skin by reducing wrinkles and dryness
Monk fuit sweetener is a sugar substitute with zero calories and zero glycemic index, plus promising studies show monk fruit contains anti-carcinogen properties which have the ability to inhibit skin and breast tumor growth.
Dark Chocolate is rich in vitamins A, B1, C, D and E, plus iron and calcium, and nourishes your skin from the inside out to replace lost moisture. PLUS it prevents ageing; defending damage by protecting from harmful UV rays thanks to its antioxidant flavonoids.
2 Cups creamy natural peanut butter, just peanuts and salt, no sugar added
1 Cup Monk fruit powdered sugar
1/2 Cup hydrolyzed Collagen powder
2 Lind Dark Chocolate Bars, 75% or higher.
Mix all ingredients in a small bowl.
Make into 1 T. balls, using a small melon scoop.
Put balls on a cookie sheet and freeze hard for an hour.
Melt the chocolate over low heat.
Using a small spoon, dip each ball and coat in the chocolate one at a time.
Place each chocolate coated ball into a silicone mini muffin pan.
Drizzle any leftover chocolate right over the balls in the pan. No need to waste chocolate!
Freeze again for an hour.
I like to use a pastry cutter help blend the ingredients. Keep the balls to 1 T because they are dense, rich and yummy! The silicone mini muffin pans are preferred because they pop the cups right out. Keep in the refrigerator or freezer. Ingredients and pans can be found on Amazon or your local grocer.
This can easily be halved if you want to start small.
