For people with a sweet tooth, completely cutting out sugar when treating an overgrowth of Candida is torture. Not only is sugar addictive, Candida will also ask for more of it by producing a substance similar to insulin.
The good news is that you can eat sweets even with an overgrowth of Candida, you just need to make them yourself 🙂
Today’s recipe for the easiest sweets to make: hedgehog cookies.
In the basic form, you’ll only need two things:
– about a cup and a half of chopped almonds
– dark chocolate with no sugar (it could be Lindt 85% – it contains demerara sugar [brown cane sugar], mentioned at the end, so only in a small amount). Those who like it sweet can add a tablespoon of xylitol (birch tree sugar, which is as sweet as white sugar, but has the opposite, even beneficial properties, including being antifungal and anticarious).
Melt the chocolate using the water bath method or steam, add the xylitol (optional) and stir. Add the chopped almonds to a bowl and mix with the molten chocolate until they are completely covered.
Use a spoon to form small round cookies and place them on baking paper. Wait for the chocolate to solidify. This may take a while, so it’s a good idea to make them in the evening and leave overnight to cool.
You can enrich the cookies by adding goji fruit and expanded millet groats, in which case they become a perfect snack by themselves. In the base form, because of the high content of fat and magnesium, you should complete them with vitamin B6.
