During the Luteal Phase (the two-ish weeks before your period) many women can find themselves craving or binging chocolate like a fiend!
If your cravings are this overwhelming just know it doesn't have to be this way! Syncing your food to your cycle is a surefire way to diminish cravings and avoid mood swings (click here to learn more on how to do this).
Chickpeas are a great food to utilize during your luteal phase to stabilize blood sugar and cravings.
-1 can of chickpeas, rinsed and dried
-chocolate chips of choice (I love the brand HU and their baking gems)
-3/4 cup of maple syrup
-1/2 cup of peanut butter
-1 tsp of baking powder
-1 tsp of vanilla extract
-mini muffin tin/silicone donut molds/loaf pan
-Preheat oven to 350
-Mix all ingredients, except chocolate chips, into food processor until thick pudding texture
-Distribute mixture into whatever vessel you chose to bake them in. Grease vessel with cooking/non stick spray
-Add a few chocolate chips on top of loaf/muffin/donut
-Cook for 20 min, checking often to make sure they aren't too brown
-Remove and let cool
**Since these are healthier ingredients, they don't always stay composed as well as other cookies, so I like to FREEZE them once they have cooled and keep them in the freezer until I'm ready to eat it. They stay together much easier!
