When you just need a special treat!
I have been AIP for 2 years now. Most days I stick to my lifestyle staying away from all my trigger foods and sugary treats! But there comes a time when I DESERVE a little cheat so I call these my 4 C's - Carob Caramel Coconut Cheats. Don't hate me for showing you these but they will curb any craving!
Nutiva O'Coconut slightly sweet coconut treats 4-5
2 tablespoons Chatfields Carob
1 tablespoon 4th & Heart Madagascar Vanilla Ghee
1 tablespoon honey - I used Tree Hive Maple, Honey and Vanilla Syrup
1 tablespoon toasted coconut
Toast coconut flakes/shreds lightly in oven till golden brown - you can substitute a topping of your choice. Try ground Tigernuts for a special treat.
- Melt carob and ghee over low heat
- Add honey stirring to mixture is caramelizing then remove from heat
- Dip coconut treats in sauce- I used a skewer to dip treats and place on parchment paper.
- Add topping and you are ready to indulge in a very deserved treat!
