Healthy Home Made Chocolate

Healthy Home Made Chocolate
  • 1 cup extra virgin coconut oil or cacaobutter
  • ½ cup nut and/or seed butter. We use pumpkin seed butter, sunflower seed butter, almond butter, cashew butter or smooth peanut butter. (Check them to make sure they have no added sugar or salt)
  • 2 Tbsp manuka honey
  • ½ cup cacao powder
  • 1 pinch of celtic salt
  • Optional - 1 scraping of vanilla bean seeds
  • Optional - a handful of chopped apricots, slivered almonds or other dried fruit or nuts
  1. This is a devine treat, made from whole foods and is dairy, egg, grain, gluten, sugar and wheat free. It can be made nut free if required as well - just change the nut/seed butter option. Enjoy! (Just remember, it is high in calories so keep the pieces small...)
  2. On a very low heat, melt the honey, coconut oil and nut/seed butter together (and the vanilla bean if you are using it). Do not boil.
  3. Stir in the cacao powder and the pinch of salt. whisk until smooth and take off the heat.
  4. Pour into a small slice tin lined with baking paper (stick the paper to the tin with a smear of oil).
  5. Sprinkle on your choice of nuts or fruit and pat gently into the mixture.
  6. Place the tin into the freezer for 1-2 hours to set. Make sure it is kept level.
  7. When set, remove from the freezer. Carefully peel off the baking paper (easier to do once it has had a couple of minutes at room temperature). Break the slab into small pieces using your hands.
  8. Recipe makes around 24-30 small pieces.
  9. Note: Needs to be kept in the fridge or freezer because it melts at room temperature. Take out to eat as needed.
