Raw cacao is basically the remains of the cacao seed after the cocoa butter is extracted. Raw cacao is supercharged with magnesium and flavanoids, which makes it good for you inside and out. Cacao beans are rich in a number of essential minerals, including magnesium, sulfur, calcium, iron, zinc, copper, potassium and manganese.

For my birthday I took in some peanut butter brownies and cinnamon spiced cupcakes to work, but to balance the sweet treats I decided to add some of these pumpkin healthy balls to balance the good vs bad. You will be surprised to know that actually these disappeared before the brownies and cupcakes! Yes, people at work were first skeptical, however they went back for seconds, thirds and forth!
