“Chocolate” Manuka Honey Fat Bombs (AIP/Paleo/Refined Sugar-Free)

Wouldn’t it be great if the chocolate eggs available at most stores leading up to Easter weren’t filled with corn syrup, but were filled with a natural healing ingredient instead? As a nutritionist student, I seriously dream about this day.  I may not be able to buy this type of healing treat BUT I can make it quickly and simply at home, with only 3 ingredients! Woot Woot!

The star ingredient of this treat is manuka honey. Not going to lie,  I am kind of in love with manuka honey. I had read a lot about the benefits prior to trying it, and I thought to myself, I bet it’s great but will I really notice that much of a difference between regular honey and manuka honey? The answer is YES, yes I did. I was coming down with a cold a couple weeks ago and had a terrible sore throat, but after having a spoonful of manuka honey, my sore throat would disappear for several hours at a time. Now I’ve tried other honeys on past sore throats and they definitely did not have the same effect. I mean, they were soothing, but did not completely wipe my sore throat away for hours, like the manuka honey did.  Manuka honey contains strong anti-bacterial and anti-inflammatory properties, which is why it worked so well. Also, it tastes amazing and I love that the texture and color remind me of caramel. Perfect for the inside of a fat bomb Easter “chocolate”,  don’t you think?
