When it comes to healthy eating habits, the holidays can often be a challenge. Many festive snacks and treats are high in carbohydrates and sugar, however, this “fat bomb” recipe is a delicious alternative that can help stabilize blood sugar levels. Coconut oil contains healthy fats called medium chain triglycerides (MCTs), which are known to help promote fullness, aid in weight management, and can act as a sustained energy source throughout the day. Goodbye, sugar crashes!

¼ cup coconut oil
¼ cup raw honey 
1 cup coconut butter
1 tsp. vanilla extract
