Healthy Cake Pops
The delicious chocolate balls are real mood enhancers. This is due to the wholemeal spelt flour, as it contains tryptophan, from which our body produces serotonin, a "happiness hormone". Dark chocolate also helps us to relax, thanks to the secondary plant substances contained in the high cocoa content as well as stomachsium, we can relax.
Cake-pops bring fun to the cake buffet with their colourful decorations, but they don't always have to be full of sugar. Why not try chopped nuts or very finely diced fruit instead of the chocolate shavings. A real eye-catcher is a mix of chopped pistachios and dried strawberries,
especially for children, because they are much smaller than a piece of cake or pie. You can reduce the amount of snacking unnoticed.
