Recipe: Collagen Pistachio Chocolate Bites

These chocolate bites pack a serious punch of nutrition, not only are they tasty, but their health benefits make them worth every bite! As the name of the recipe suggests they contain collagen, which is the most abundant protein in your body and supports the cells of every single tissue in your body!

As you can see these chocolate bites are way more than just a dessert, they’re “skin firming, antioxidant rich” sweet treats!

Here’s what you’ll need to make them:

  • 1 cup cacao butter, finely chopped
  • 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • 1 cup raw cacao powder
  • 3 tablespoons grass-fed collagen powder
