Home Made Healthy Chocolate

I love chocolate and I eat way too much of it but I can't give it up either....there has to be some good treats in my life.  The other day I made these chocolates and I had 1 to 2 a day as my treat and didn't eat any other sweets during the day.

The recipe is from Cut out the Crap blog which is a great resource.  Here is the link to the chocolate recipe.  I forgot to take a picture of the finished chocolates and now they are all gone so I guess I'll have to make another batch.

It's just 3 ingredients coconut oil, cacao powder and maple syrup.  It says you may need a touch of milk however I didn't need this at all.  If you want to make a healthy chocolate give this a go and it took less than 5 mins to mix up and put in the molds.  You could use ice cube trays but the chocolate pieces would be much bigger and hard to cut in half and only eat half.  I buy my coconut oil from Aldi and it's half the cost of the other supermarkets and it's organic too.  The maple syrup comes from Aldi as well.  These are so easy and taste great.  I put mine in the freezer (out of sight) and just got one out when I needed it.

  2. Thanks for sharing Kathy. I get my coconut oil at Aldi's too, but I didn't know they sold maple syrup.

    1. The maple syrup is above the freezer section opposite the yoghurt...I think they have cake mixes there.

  3. I make this as well and love Aldi's range. I also brown a small handful of seeds and nuts (chopped almonds/ sunflower seeds and pepitas) in coconut oil and throw that in the mix with some raisins or sultanas. You can also add a spoonful of peanut butter and any diced dried fruit. Yum - it doesn't last long!

  5. Looks good. I do not have a sweet tooth and can have chocolate in the house at all times with out being tempted so I probably wouldn't make my own but for chocoholics I can see the benefit.
