Strawbery Chocolate Easter Eggs
Easter can be a time of real indulgence for a lot of people so I wanted to share a healthy raw treat that will hit the spot and won’t send you into a sugar high!
These delicious treats are dairy, gluten, nut and refined sugar free so great for people with food intolerances and/or food allergies. They can easily be made into any mould you like!
Chia seeds are highly nutritious, they are rich in antioxidants and provide fibre, iron and calcium!
Cacao is much better for you than Cocoa as its been made by cold-pressing the beans, whereas cocoa powder has been roasted at a high temperature which basically lowers it nutritional value. Cacao powder is actually a really good source of magnesium as well as high in antioxidants!
So don’t feel guilty if you have a couple of these babies!
You can purchase the mould to make these eggs here.
