Hello! I found these beauties on Empowered Sustenance’s site . I have loved looking through her site! Now this post, really weirded me out. As you all know, I love fats! I cook with them constantly. I believe that fats are a necessity and can help many ailments. However, I have never been one to grab a stick of butter and eat it. These are basically just that. :) I made these  this past week and tried them out throughout the week. They are Great!! They have greatly helped me during those periods of low blood sugar. Sometimes I accidently go a little too long before my next meal and suffer from a blood sugar crash. They babies are amazing! Best of all, one batch makes a LOT! I usually pop 3-4 before going out to exercise, or even sometimes before bed if I ate a really early dinner. They really do curb your sweet tooth!

  • Small pinch of unrefined salt
  • Optional: 2 Tbs. cocoa powder for a chocolate version (a empowered sustenance reader’s suggestion) Might try this next batch!


  1. Have the butter at room temperature. Stir together all ingredients then scoop it into adisposable pastry bag or zip-top bag. You can use a metal pastry tip like I did, I just stuck the metal tip into the end of a zip-top bag and then cut off a corner of the bag (see picture above). If you don’t want to use a tip, just snip of the corner of the bag.
  2. Squeeze bite-sized buttons onto a baking sheet lined with unbleached parchment paper. Place in the fridge until firm, about 2 hours, then transfer to a storage container and store in the fridge.

Notes: For a chocolate version: A reader told me she made this recipe with the addition of 2 Tbs. cocoa powder, for a chocolate version, with success. That sounds like a great idea and I wanted to share it here!

Inspired by this recipe from Shaye at The Elliot Homestead.


Hope you try these out!! They have changed my life!


Living Satisfied!
