Thin Mint Fat Bombs
These thin mint fat bombs are naturally sweetened and made with almond flour, nut butter, chocolate collagen powder, and fresh mint. It’s the perfect protein-rich morning or afternoon snack.
Cacao is a superfood rich in antioxidants—known to enhance cognition and positive mood, while almond butter is a healthy fat full of fiber that keeps you feeling satiated (1, 2). With that being said, these chocolatey treats will keep you feeling guilt-free since you’ll be doing something healthy for your body.
