Valentine’s Day is upon us, and we want to share this beautiful dessert with you. So simple to make for you and your loved ones. They are made with almond butter, coconut butter, matcha chocolate, and our own Go Nuts granola.
The Go Nuts Granola is loaded with tree nuts and seeds from almonds, coconuts, cashews, and pumpkin seeds. They are rich in iron, fiber, magnesium, calcium, and proteins. These good fats help to promote a healthy heart and healthy skin. Click here to learn more or purchase the Go Nuts Granola.
We topped this dessert with our homemade matcha chocolate. Yes, we made the chocolate from scratch with vegan ingredients like cashews and coconuts. I will share the recipe for this in another post.
Matcha is used in many recipes these days because of its numerous benefits. It is packed with antioxidants, boosts metabolism, and burns calories. Matcha is rich in fiber and vitamins and helps relax the body. You can find matcha chocolates in your local health food stores. We wanted to keep it a plant-based recipe, so we made ours from scratch.
You don’t need much to make this dessert. The ingredients may already be in your kitchen, but you will need our own Go Nuts granola to get the best taste, and of course, you may need to buy your own chocolate. The almond butter and coconut butter mix give the paste a lovely flavor.
You’re good to go if you have almond butter or any nut butter. To get the silicon heart-shaped molds, you will need to purchase them from amazon or use a heart-shaped cupcake pan. Click here for the amazon link for the molds.
