Chocolate. Muffins. Sounds good, right?! What if I told you to add a lil mushroom goodness to your grain free chocolate chip muffins?
The mushroom craze is where it’s at right now, and I know if you’re a skeptic, you’re thinking that it sounds disgusting. The folks over at Om Mushroom gave me the goods at Natural Products Expo to see how the power of mushrooms could transform my recipes.
These little bites of chocolate heaven are enough for you to be sold, too. They are super healthy, pop right into your mouth. Recently, I’ve had some requests for some kid friendly recipes, and I think this is the perfect treat.
I used Om’s Lion’s Mane. Om’s products are organic! They are driving the mushroom market right now. Some facts taken from their website about Lion’s Mane which is a great supplement for memory, focus, and nerve health:
Focus and spark your mind for brilliant cognitive function. Health food for your brain to inspire clarity, creativity & mood. Regenerate nerve health, Lion’s Mane is reported in many studies to stimulate the synthesis of Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), a protein that promotes the growth and normal function of nerve cells.*
I have heard about the benefits of Lion’s Mane, and I’m very excited to test out the impacts in my own cognition and nerve health.
