Recipe: Guilt-Free Chocolate Treat

unnamed

 

Most of the time chocolate treats are filled with refined sugars that will slow your fitness results. Well, today I have a recipe that uses zero-sugar, stevia-sweetned chocolate that will make both your sweet tooth and your waistline very happy.

This zero sugar treat has endless possibilities in the flavor department. Have fun swapping out the chopped pistachios for shredded coconut, other ground nuts, or crushed freeze dried fruit.
