Raw Coconut and Cherry Treats


  1. Place the cherries into a small saucepan and slowly heat, until they simmer for a few minutes. They will soften and become mushy. Allow to cool. Line a 7 inch square pan with baking paper.
  2. In a different sauce pan, slowly melt the coconut butter with the coconut oil. Stir in the maple syrup and vanilla.
  3. In a bowl add the desiccated coconut, pour the melted coconut mixture over the coconut and mix very well.
  4. Using 2/3 of this mixture spread it evenly over the base of the pan and press down firmly. (aprox 1 cup). With the remaining coconut mixture add the cooled cherries and mix well.
  5. Spread the cherry mixture evenly over the base layer and press down firmly. Refrigerate for 1 hour.
  6. In a microwave or double boiler gently melt the chocolate.
  7. Once the slice is set, drizzle with the melted chocolate. Allow to set for another 15 minutes in the fridge.
  8. Enjoy!
  9. * Notes: You can buy coconut butter at healthfood shops or you can make your own in a high speed food processor. To make it you just need 200 grams of desiccated non sweetened coconut. Place it in the food processor and blend on high for aprox 10 minutes in total. You will need to do it in intervals and scrape down the sides as well as give your machine a rest. It will get very hot. The heat from the motor will help with coconut to process. You will know when you have the desired consistence of a thick butter. Make sure your chocolate is dark and has a high cocoa content.

Live Changer

I have been taking HH, HG, and HT for nearly 8 months now, and they have been a total live changer.
From sleeping, to mood swings, hot flushes and feeling better within myself over all, I can’t speak highly enough of them, I only wish I had known about them years ago.


Taking the HH capsules for ease. Has helped with sleeping and given me some energy back. Definitely worth a try if your debating about it

Great results quickly

After struggling with Anxiety and PMDD for years i decided to give Happy Hormones a try and i have not regretted it. I began to feel better after a couple of days. I ran out of happy hormones and really noticed the difference for the 2 weeks i didnt have it. I feel calmer and can think clearer, my PMS symptoms also improved and i don't need to take time off work because of it anymore. I am really happy with the results.


After being suddenly hit with hot flashes (up to 20 a day) and night sweats in peri menopause, my HH tablets have made me feel normal again. I do need to take 4 tablets in the morning and 4 at night but they work. It did take a couple of months to get to this point where I now only have a couple of hot moments in the day, so I would advise to stick with them and give it time to work.

Pain Free

After years of being on the pill and still suffering with period pain and headaches every month, I'm happy to have found Happy Hormones. Now I have no idea that my period is on its way.
