Cacao Bomb

Whoa, these morsels are definitely a tasty delight that give you a healthy dose of cacao first thing in the morning, or after a meal. 

They can be anything from a healthy desert, to a quick snack, or brekkie on the go. 

If you’re anything like me, then eating a concentrated amount of cacao might be a major pick-me-up. 

These yummy cookies offer antioxidants, protein, and yet still taste like heaven. What’s not to love?


Cacao powder
Coconut flour
Quinoa flakes
Coconut milk 
Cacao butter
Coconut oil 
Flaxseed meal
Baking soda/powder
Almond butter
Hemp seeds
Chia seeds
Monk fruit sweetener (or any sweetener of your choice)
Cacao nibs 


As usual, I didn’t measure. But this one is pretty straightforward, so you should be just fine. This made about 3 dozen smallish cookies. 

1. In a large mixing bowl, add 3 C cacao power, 2 C coconut flour, 2 C quinoa flakes, 2 heaping T flaxseed meal, and 1 tbsp baking soda or powder. Mix together. 

2. Add about 3 C coconut milk (or any non-dairy milk of choice).  Stir until sticky mixture. Add more milk if it’s not sticky enough. 

3. Add 2 T coconut oil, 1/8 C cacao butter, and 2 heaping T almond butter (or nut butter of your choice). Stir together. 

4. Add monk fruit sweetener (or sweetener or choice) as you like it. I used about 2 tbsp. This isn’t necessary if you don’t want it to be super sweet. 

5. I like to add seeds for more nutrition and texture, but if that’s not your think, they don’t add the hemp and chia. I probably used about 1/8 C of each. 

6. Once it’s all stirred into a sticky mixture, I made pretty small cookies because I’m pretty sensitive to the stimulating effects of cacao, but you do you. I topped some of the cookies with an extra dollop of almond butter, and all with a few sprinkles of cacao nibs. 

7. Bake 180 C for about 20 minutes, then check. It depends on the size cookies you make for how long it takes.
