4 Ingredient Chocolate Cinnamon Truffles

Print

I absolutely love dark chocolate and let myself have it at least once per week as a treat. The key is just to make sure you’re choosing dairy-free, 80% or higher dark chocolate, that is organic and GMO-free. When it comes to sweeteners, opt for a natural choice (dates, stevia, etc) instead of white sugar and enjoy!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Chocolate contains two related alkaloid stimulants, theobromine and caffeine, in a ratio of about 10 to 1. Theobromine, unlike caffeine, does not stimulate the central nervous system-its effects are mainly diuretic. Chocolate is also rich in phehylethylamine, a naturally occurring compound that has effects similar to those of amphetamine. The original chocolate bean has significant amounts of vitamin E and B vitamins. Cocoa powder also supplies chromium, iron, magnesium, phosphorous and potassium.
