Chewy Chocolate Squares

During the month of May we shared several posts and an article focused on Mental Health Awareness. To wrap up our monthly theme we reached out to local Chef Heather Pace to share one of her recipes that has a well researched "feel good" ingredient. Yes, Cacao is a source of serotonin, dopamine and phenylethylamine–three "feel good" neurotransmitters that give us pleasure. It's our pleasure to share Heather's recipe.

Cacao also provides an energy boost while the nuts and coconut oil will leave you feeling full and satisfied for hours. These chewy chocolate squares are sweetened with dates, giving them a slight bit of chewiness. I think they turned out pretty darn delicious! I hope you like them too. Keep them in the fridge.
