Brain Candy Recipe: The Dessert that Boosts Memory

I eat this all the time! It’s the yummiest. It’s high in plant-based fat, and the brain needs fat to function. Researchers have linked low-fat diets to the rise in dementia in this country. 

This sweet recipe is made with coconut oil, which contains the mid-size triglycerides capable of slowing down or reversing the process of dementia. 

It’s sweetened with raw honey, which in traditional Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine is known to help drive cures deeper into the body. If you're vegan, you can definitely substitute with maple syrup. 

Raw cacao is packed with antioxidants, magnesium, sulfur, zinc, iron, and B vitamins. It increases the availability of neurotransmitters like serotonin in the brain, making us feel happier. 

The real kicker is the gingko biloba, made from the leaves of the gingko tree. This tree is one of the oldest trees on the planet. The supplement sharpens memory and improves thinking. You can buy it in pill form and use the powder inside for this recipe, or just buy the powder from a health food store or Amazon


  • 1 cup raw, organic coconut oil, softened

  • 20 milligrams of gingko biloba

  • ¼ cup (to ½ cup) raw honey

  • 1 cup coconut shreds

  • ¼ cup coconut flour

  • ¼ cup raw, organic cacao powder

Here’s what you do:

  1. Mix the wet ingredients

  2. Mix the dry ingredients

  3. Mix all together.

  4. Roll into balls and keep refrigerated. Always eat straight from the fridge as they get melty.

  5. Eat two a day and pay attention to your new and improved short-term memory.
