I’m not convinced there is such a thing as healthy chocolate. However, this meltin-your mouth decadent treat is free from refined sugar and bad fats, so enjoy – it’s delicious! Instead of making a block of chocolate, try pouring into chocolate moulds. Feel free to add chopped nuts and fruit.
Ingredients: 1 cup coconut oil 1 cup cocoa (or cacao) powder ½ cup pure maple syrup 1 tsp vanilla extract (optional)
