Dark Cacao Hemp Chaga Bites

In need of a different take on the classic energy bites recipe that typically calls for dates and some kind nut or seed. Here at Real Mushrooms HQ, we have been experimenting with different medicinal mushrooms of all kinds for an energy bite recipe. In this recipe, chaga extract pairs beautifully with the nutty flavor of hemp seeds and caramel sweetness from the dates. The balance of chaga, which gives an earthy tone and the slight bitterness from the cacao really bring this recipe up a notch. I think you guys will really enjoy this one! Let’s get down to business. Shall we?!

  • 1  to 1.5 cups packed pitted dates (medjool is ideal here)
  • 2 cups pecans
  • 6 Tbsp raw cacao powder 
  • 3  to 4 Tbsp hemp seeds (plus more for rolling at the end of the recipe)
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp Real Mushrooms Chaga extract
  • 3 Tbsp creamy almond butter or sunflower seed butter
  • 1 Tbsp melted coconut oil (not necessary – but lends for some extra goodness!!)

 

First, add dates to a high-speed blender and blend till the dates are pretty blended up. Once done. Take the dates out and add in the pecans next. Blend this up till they turn to little pieces. After that, add in the cacao powder, nut or seed butter of choice, chaga extract, sea salt, and coconut oil if desired! Blend everything up till it begins to bind together and turn more dough like. Take the energy bite dough and place in the fridge for roughly 10-20 minutes. Take out the dough and roll the dough into energy bites or small size energy bars, Whatever suits your fancy here!

Spiced Mushroom Elixir

Caffeine is quite the substance. Some folks praise it and how much better he or she performs whereas for some folks it hinders their performance in a lot of ways. Both perspectives have equal merit. I think it’s safe to say that caffeine is very individual based and will vary from person to person. This leads me to our next topic of discussion. How do you still get that coffee like experience with that aroma, color, boldness, and stimulation, but without the stimulation!? This superb spiced mushroom elixir by Jonathan P. Shanks has just what the doctored ordered.

 

More details below!!

 

– Mug of organic brown rice milk (heated) (preferably sprouted brown rice)

– 1 tsp raw organic cacao powder

– ¼ tsp organic cardamom powder

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Lion’s Mane

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Cordyceps-M

– ½ tsp Real Mushrooms Reishi 415

– ½ tsp of decent organic coconut oil

– Pinch of Himalayan salt

 

***Blend it all together for about a minute after heating the milk and it’s good to go. You can use any milk you like and also swap out the cardamon for ginger, cinnamon, maca etc. The cacao and coconut oil give it a lovely thick chocolate texture.***
