MEDICINAL CHOCOLATE MEDALLIONS



Contributor: Brianna Beard
Brianna Beard has crafted these medicinal chocolate medallions using some of her favorite mushroom powders ~ Cordyceps for its support with muscular health and longevity and Lion's Mane for its cognitive benefits. This decadent, nutrient-rich recipe is the perfect brain snack for busy moments, the end of the week or when you're just craving a little high-vibe chocolate..

A note from Brianna 

I feel like everything we put in our bodies can be medicinal, balancing and harmonizing. Every time I create a recipe I want the food to bring forth those three things, especially when its something decadent like a chocolate medallion. This recipe is simple yet powerful with beauty enhancing superfoods and medicinal mushrooms.  

Let's start with the medicinal mushrooms!

Cordyceps:  This magical fungi delivers energy to the muscles of the body, enhancing performance. Taking them consistently improves your body's use of oxygen during exercise. Cordyceps are also known for their anti-aging properties!  They are high in antioxidants that are known to fight cell damage, reducing potential disease and keeping the body vital and strong.

Lion's Mane: A long time favorite of mine for memory support. As a yoga instructor, I need my mind to be sharp, clear and focused. When I am taking Lion's Mane I see a noticeable difference in these areas, I never forget a sequence! This lovely mushroom assists the brain in forming new brain cells. It is a wonderful preventative for Alzheimer's and other degenerative diseases. I recommend this daily in water, tea, coffee, smoothies OR these delicious chocolate medallions!

The coconut oil and coconut manna moisturize your body from the inside out, making your skin radiant and glowy. Cacao is a natural mood elevator and anti-depressant, bringing you back to your natural state of joy.  Raw honey is one of nature's most powerful medicines, it can be very soothing to a sore throat.  It is also a prebiotic, meaning it nourishes the good bacteria that live in the intestines.  

Each ingredient in this recipe is specific and intentional, one bite of these medallions is like taking a potent spoonful of medicine to balance and harmonize every system of the body!

 

 Ingredients

1/2 cup coconut oil (melted)

1/4 cup coconut manna

1/2 cup raw cacao powder

1/2 cup almond butter

1/3 cup raw honey

2 tbsp. Sun Potion Cordyceps

My fondest memory of childhood was my first trip to Hawaii. Everything was so vibrant and fresh. The first time I tasted a mango I became obsessed with food in that form, simple and unprocessed. I’ve gone through every food phase, from vegetarian to vegan to pescatarian to completely raw. Through those experiences I have discovered I need flexibility in order to maintain balance. So my approach now is MOSTLY plant based with medicinal herbs and adaptogens infused into as many meals as possible. The food I make is an exploration of the unlimited potential of nature, preparing foods with seeds, nuts, roots, stems, pollens, algae, seaweeds, fungi, sprouts, leaves and flowers!
