Yo, it's almost valentines day and tis the season to eat chocolate! This recipe has five ingredients! Yes, you read this correctly, five amazing ingredients to both rock and ease your world.
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
3/4 cup virgin coconut oil (if you don't like coconut taste, exchange for almond butter or tahini)
LOTS OF OPTIONS FOR SWEETENERS! 1/4 coconut nectar or maple syrup or raw honey (note: coconut nectar is less sweet and bit more sour than maple syrup. It also has a lower glycemic index. I like to use both for different occasions. If it is for the 'shifting' palette (those folks used to eating a standard American diet, then use maple syrup! If you use raw honey, it may 'weep' ... meaning that the coconut oil and honey may not dissolve into each other.)
1/2 tsp vanilla
dash of sea salt
Melt coconut oil. Once melted add cacao, vanilla, sea salt and coconut nectar. Stir together and refrigerate until thick, but still a little runny. Enjoy by the spoonful, on ice-cream, or with a banana!
