5 Ingredient Paleo Chocolate
Dark, smooth and rich... deliciously decadent almost fudge style chocolate. It's so good it should really be bad for you. BUT it's 100% naturally sweetened, organic, and full of good fats. So good in fact, we would go so far as to say its actually good for you!!!!! Chocolate... good for you! I know... blasphemous ;)
- 1/4 cup Coconut Oil (or 2oz of cocoa butter)
- 1/4 cup Local Raw Honey
- 1/3 cup Cocoa powder 100%, unsweetened
- 1 tbsp Pure vanilla extract
- 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon Ceylon
Over a low heat, melt the coconut oil in a small sauce pan
Next add the honey, stir and remove from the heat
Now add in the cocoa powder and stir until fully incorporated
Add the Vanilla extract and Cinnamon, stirring until smooth and creamy
Using a tablespoon, place 1 spoonful of the mixture into muffin cases and place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes, or freezer for 10 minutes.
Remove from the cases and eat!
NOTE: These melt REALLY quick, so eat straight from the fridge or freezer! As an alternative, you can stir 2 tbsp of chopped nuts, shredded coconut, hemp and/or chia seeds into the mixture before refrigerating. Or, as pictured, start with a tablespoon of the chocolate, let harden in the frig or freezer, then add some almond butter followed by another tablespoon of chocolate. Almond butter chocolate cups! YUM!
