We have loads of sweet treat recipes in the 131 Method. From the most decadent keto peanut butter recipes, to some pretty sensational fruity crumbles for Carb Charge, there’s no shortage of options. Or, maybe you’re trying to beat a sugar addiction. What if you’re just “not a sweets person?” Well, first of all, you’re unique! We all know a girl or two who reaches for chips instead of chocolate, but it’s pretty rare. But because the 131 Method is a program for every-BODY, we just had to offer a Brain Bomb/ Unsweetened Fat Bomb option lighter on sweetness, with all the richness of the originals. In fact, we should just called them naturally sweetened, because that’s what they are. But a lot of chefs say that and then sweeten with honey or maple syrup. We use neither! We don’t have to. They’re truly naturally and lightly sweet on their own:)
Another reason we created this less sweet treat is for all of you who don’t tolerate sugar substitutes well. Erythritol, Monk Fruit and Xylitol aren’t for everyone. There’s a small population who get mild to severe stomach pains from these and other sweeteners. This recipe leans on coconut butter’s natural sweetness, and only a hint of optional stevia.
Every once in a while we post a recipe and someone living abroad or in a small town can’t get their hands on that ingredient. It might be hemp for Australia, collagen peptides in England, or coconut butter in a small town. The good news is, coconut butter is one thing you can make at home when needed! Simply toss a bag of dried, unsweetened coconut into a high-powered blender and process (scraping sides when needed) for about 5 minutes, or until smooth.
