CBD Peanut Butter Chocolate Bars

CBD is the rage so, I made a CBD chocolate dessert for you. It’s the rage for a good reason, come find out and get the recipe!

This recipe is something I am SO excited about. CBD oil has been floating around the internet for a while now and you should know the truth behind it. What it is, what it’s for, who it’s good for & so much more. And before you ask, it won’t make you high!

What better way to say hello to CBD oil than having it in the form of a CBD chocolate dessert? I mean, who doesn’t love some chocolate and peanut butter to wind down at the end of the night? You can also have this treat in the morning or the middle of the day, it’s not going to make you zonk! It’s perfect because you can’t taste the earthy taste that’s unpleasant for some. Plus, it’s chocolate… case in point.

Theratreats is a CBD chocolate company that sponsored this post so, HUGE shoutout to them! Be sure to head over to their website to get your hands on some. There is 15 mg of CBD in each piece (4/box) and you can melt it down, bring it on the road, make hot chocolate with it or eat it straight up. While I used the dark chocolate with absolutely nothing else in it, they do have other flavors. You’re in for a treat.

Did somebody say CBD Chocolate Dessert?

One of my favorite parts about this CBD chocolate dessert is that it contains NO refined sugar. The only sugar in it comes from maple syrup and I barely used any. There isn’t even sugar in the Theratreats chocolate bar! Remember, you can make it with any nut butter of your choosing like sunbutter, cashew, peanut, almond or walnut. You really can’t mess these up, you freeze a bunch of layers of deliciousness and whatever happens happens. Peanut butter is naturally delicious so, you can serve these up to anyone.. kids included. Then, since they’re naturally gluten-free, you can bring them to your weird friend that doesn’t eat gluten aka me.

Science, it’s what I like

So, why’s everyone speaking so (high)ly about CBD… hehe, sorry I had to. Well, I’m so glad you asked because CBD is well-deserving of the lime light it’s getting. CBD stands for cannabidiol and it’s a phytocannabinoid found in Cannabis. CBD is not psychoactive and will not – I REPEAT – will not make you high or give you the munchies. Since it’s rise to fame is fairly ‘new’ there aren’t a lot of studies on it. But the ones that exist show promising results. Here’s what it’s show to help with:

  • counteract the effects of THC (getting high)
  • anxiety
  • acne
  • ADD
  • arthritis
  • neurodegenerative diseases
  • seizures
  • inflammation
  • insomnia
  • & pain

WOO, who isn’t stoked about this one? Better yet, God created us to have an entire endocannabinoid system. This system regulates caloric energy balance, immune function and emotional behavior. The way it works is like this: CBD in, says hi endocannabinoid (eBC) system. Then, eBC says “hey hippocampus and amygdala, let’s chill out a little.” = lessened stress. CBD induces autophagy (kill old cells & make room for new ones). Now, if you want more science, you’ll find it in all of my posts like these hormone lovingĀ grain free brownies!

      Can you please clarify what you are asking? If it’s asking about CBD – it’s one bar of what I mention in the post. If it about the coconut oil, the amount is stated on the recipe.

After two months of working with Ashlee, we got pregnant. She's kind, diligent and truly invested in my family and health. We tried for over a year to get pregnant with no luck after our first baby. I definitely recommend!

My back pain literally left, my puffy arms toned up and now I'm able to chase my baby boy around. HOLY CRAP, I was hesitant to implement the changes Ashlee always talked about on her Instagram stories (which led me to work 1:1 with her). Thank you Ashlee, from the bottom of my heart.
