Majik Mermaid Bites

I’ve been trying to really cut back on my sugar intake lately, so I wanted to create a high fat treat that has almost no sweetener, but is still super decadent and keeps me satisfied. Enter: majik mermaid bites. These little nuggets of joy remind me of the ocean, they’ve got blue and green hues that come from blue majik and spirulina (hence the name!). They’re loaded with healthy fats from coconut, walnut, and MCT oil; plus lots of fiber from hemp and chia seeds. This recipe is super adaptable and easy to make, find it below:

Now, since I’m just a tad more health conscious, I’ve created this raw, refined sugar free, dairy free, egg free, gluten free, grain free (EVERYTHING FREE) chocolate chip cookie dough recipe.
