If you’re watching your blood sugar, you know that buying store bought, processed foods, low sugar, sugar free and fat free, are not really all that “free” of sugar and fat. 

Though we could sit there scratching our heads wondering HOW we let manufacturers buffalo us, but instead, how about we just start making some of these things ourselves so that WE control what kind and how much of the sugar[s] and fat[s] we consume.

I’ve gone to using 3 different types of sweetener for most all my cooking.  They are all over-all low Glycemic.

Raw Honey
Agave Syrup
Coconut Sugar

Even if you are diabetic, you’ll be able to eat these delicious little cookie / candy bites.  I use Raw Honey most of the time, but if I’m out or low on Honey, I’ll substitute Agave.  Since the mixture never gets heated, we’re not cooking the health benefits of the Raw Honey out of the mix.

Here’s what you need (what’s not showing is the sunbutter – LOL – opps), but here’s also the breakdown:


1/3 c Sunbutter, Almond Butter or Peanut Butter

1/3 c Raw Honey or Agave Syrup

1/3 c Melted Coconut oil

2 Table Spoons Cocoa Powder

1 Table Spoon Pure Vanilla

A sprinkle of Sea Salt

2 c Shredded Unsweetened Coconut

Mix everything together in a bowl except the coconut.  Once you’ve got it all blended, stir in the coconut. 

I use a round tablespoon to scoop out rounded balls, place them on a tray lined with plastic or parchment paper.  Freeze for about an hour then eat.   These can be kept in the freezer or refrigerator, but because of the coconut oil, they will get soft if left out on a warm day.

Makes about 25 cookies


These are great little power balls packed with nutritious, fresh ingredients that will NOT blow your diet program.  As with anything, do eat them with moderation.  I’d hate for you to write me and say my sweet treats ruined your diet.  LOL

By the way, if you’re a dark cocoa fan, jump right in and do the substitution.  You may want to cut back the cocoa to 1 1/2 Tablespoon though and if you’re not only a cocoa freak but a sweetie too, you can increase the honey by adding up to 2 more table spoons without making it an ooie-gooie mess that won’t keep it’s shape.




Peace Out

Live, Laugh, Always, with Love
