Chocolate Tahini Fat Bombs {Sugar Free}

I know, I know. I’ve been very quiet lately in the blog-o-sphere. I could say that my 3-month-old baby was a good excuse – except my blogger friend Phylicia, who just happened to have a baby at the same time as me, manages to turn out 3 posts a week or more.

Let’s just say she manages that by magic and call my 3-month-old baby a good excuse.

So this month I’ve decided to do this sugar-free thing. Yeah, I might be a little crazy. I would think it was ridiculous myself, except for the last two weeks I’ve been eating refined-sugar-free and managed to drop 3 kilos of my stubborn baby weight.

Suddenly it doesn’t seem so crazy.

It’s also not crazy because I’m seriously addicted to the stuff. Whether it’s bananas or milk chocolate – if I don’t have my sugar hit by noon I feel sick as a cow. And honestly I don’t think any woman should be that addicted to anything.

“All things are lawful for me,” but not all things are helpful. “All things are lawful for me,” but I will not be dominated by anything” (1 Corinthians 6:14).

I won’t be dominated by anything – not even sugar.

Just… don’t touch my coffee.

Umm. Let’s not go there.

*ahem*

Let’s get onto the subject of chocolate.

Now, there’s a pleasant thing to talk about – except for if you are eating sugar free. Then it’s not so great. I love eating dark chocolate (which is GREAT for you, by the way!) but I’ve committed to eating NO sugar for the next four weeks.

And 100% dark chocolate is awful. I tried to eat it and it quite literally almost made me cry. And gag. It spread all over my mouth and I didn’t want to swallow it.

Don’t do it. 

So, chocolate junkie that I am — and having gotten the lovely-once-a-month’s on the very first day of the dreadful challenge — I needed to have a warm chocolate cuddle.

So I decided to make my very own Tahini Fat Chocolate to tie me through. Yup, fat chocolate. Not chocolate that makes you fat – but chocolate made out of fat. Full of fatty goodness and healthfulness.

This chocolate is keto-friendly, almost paleo-friendly (if you sub protein for cocoa and add a spoon of honey or maple syrup), low carb, sugar free, and I believe THM friendly (an “S”). You could even make it dairy free by subbing the butter for coconut oil.

And yeah, they were super good.

So really, you have no reason not to make this.

Chocolate Tahini Fat Bombs {Sugar Free}

Method

In a food processor, mix until fully blended:
1 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup tahini
1/2 cup butter, cut into cubes (not melted)

Add in the following ingredients and blend till smooth:
1 cup unsweetened cocoa
3 scoops (30g each) chocolate protein powder (I use MRM natural, dutch chocolate)
1 tbsp cinnamon
Contents of one vanilla bean pod

Pour onto a tray lined with baking paper greased with coconut oil.

Sprint over sesame seeds and place in freezer for 3 hours.

Snap the chocolate apart and keep in an airtight container in the freezer.

These melt pretty quickly – so make sure you chomp it up once you take one out! xx
