So...as promised here is the raw chocolate recipe that I have been shouting from the rooftops about!
Raw chocolate is incredibly EASY to make, delicious and a much much healthier alternative to the over processed and over sweetened chocolate found in the shops. All that you need is Organic Raw Coconut Oil, Raw Organic Cacao Powder and a syrup of your choice. I use Brown Rice Syrup.
Basic Raw Chocolate recipe:
- 200g Coconut oil
- 40g Raw Cacao Powder
- 1-2 tablespoons Brown Rice Syrup
- A pinch of Sea Salt
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth/combined.
It really is that simple.
You will be left with a mixture that can be rolled into balls or melted down and poured into a mould. If you are melting the chocolate be sure to do it slowly in a glass bowl over some hot water. It melts really quickly so be sure not to over do it!
I like having nice pretty shapes to snack on so I whack mine in a mould and then refrigerate for a few hours. When they are cold I pop them in a Tupperware box and keep them for those "I NEED A CHOCOLATE FIX NOW" moments.
