If I knew for sure that I would not gain a pound ever I would’ve became a lollioligist, but since I can’t stop playing around with the 70 % dark chocolate I might as well now pursue a carreer as a Chocolatier! 70 % dark chocolate is so good for you even when you are on a diet, in fact most diets nowadays suggest that you should have nuts and dark chocolate included in your meal plan. Feeling deprived is one of the main reasons for cheating on your diet. Just keep in mind that moderation is still key here.

Chocolate Almond Stars
70% dark chocolate and raw almonds, both extremely good for you!
Your 70 % dark chocolate is off course not your kiddies chocolate loaded with sugar and milk, rather think of it as a natural anti-depressant full of anti oxidants.
So why not combine the two for a delicious little super snack.
I had some left over dark chocolate (I KNOW! who’s got left over chocolate in their pantry, right???)Well these things happens in my house since my husband is a diabetic and I would rather sell my soul for something salty…thinking salty cracks, yum!
I basically used left overs so off course I didn’t really bother to measure anything. So please use the quantities below with the knowledge that you might actually have left overs! lol.
Promise next time I make a batch I will write it down and amend my recipe!

I firmly believe that one should have a little treat while on any diet or healthy eating program.
Why? Because we are human and we humans like sweet chocolate things! That’s it.
This is a great lunch box treat and it also qualifies for that chocolate graving attacks that sneaks up on you after eight at night just before bedtime, and that’s normally the time that my mind and body is divided in thought.
If you ever had to talk yourself out of a slice of toast before bedtime you would understand what I mean!
I love this recipe because it contains all healthy ingredients, no sugar, just the natural sweetness of the dates and a crunchy bite from the nuts.
I have successfully halved the recipe since pitted dates only come in 250 g packets and because our family only consists of 3 minus the grumpy one that doesn’t have a sweet tooth at all!
This is the quickest savoury tart that you will ever make! Great for lunch and even greater when you have unexpected quest.
It’s great for the children’s lunch boxes and sophisticated enough when cut it into bite size diamond shapes top with a dollop of mustard and served on your best plates.
Bobotie is a South African Dish consisting of spiced mince meat and dried fruit baked with an egg-based topping. It is also made with curry powder leaving it with destinct taste.
This is a healthier version and baked indivudiually, great for a late afternoon protein snack, kids luncboxes or as a party bite.
I’v made it specially for supper served with a fresh tomato and onion sambal, rice and beet salad. All left overs was used as protein snacks later in the week.
Makes 24 Bobotie bites
Each bobotie bite equals 1 protein
If you don’t like Sultanas replace it with one peeled and finely grated apple.
