Shakeology Bar

I am a complete chocolate lover and am on my final week of Hammer and Chisel. I am so proud of my-self week 7 and no cheats! What helps without a doubt is Chocolate Shakeology and the fact that you can make so many sweet treats with it. I am trying something new here…

Ingredients

For the chocolate:

  • 2 cups dark chocolate chips ( I like to use 67% or higher)
  • 2 teaspoons coconut oil
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

For the filling:

  • ¾ cup almond butter
  • ⅓ cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil

Preparation

  1. In a medium sized mixing bowl, combine all filling ingredients and mix well. Set aside.
  2. Combine chocolate ingredients in a small pot and melt on low once melted add a spoonful of chocolate to the bottom of a chocolate cup mold. (I used silicone baking cups and sprayed them with a little coconut oil)
  3. Place mold in the freezer for a couple minutes to harden. (About 15)
  4. Add one scoop of the filling mixture on top of the frozen chocolate layer.
  5. Once each cup has the filling added, add more melted chocolate on top.
  6. Freeze cups until hard and remove gently from the mold.
  7. Enjoy.

Best part is this sweet treat contains no added sugar!
