Raw Coconut Chocolate (DF, GF)
Raw Coconut Chocolate
3 Tbsp Coconut oil
2 Tbsp Almond, Brazil and Cashew Nut Spread
1 Tbsp Raw Cacao powder
1/2 tsp. Raw Maca Powder(optional)
a pinch of Sea Salt
Sweetener of your taste and preference (I like 1 1/2 tsp. Raw Honey for a toffee like consistency once chilled)
Ensure Honey(if using), oil and nut-butter are warm enough to be at a thin consistency before combining
Simply blend ingredients in a bowl and sweeten to your preference. Once combined, carefully spoon into chocolate moulds of your choosing and place in freezer.
Maca can easily be omitted from the recipe.
Maca is a great adaptogenic herb. It is useful for energy and ladies libido (hellooo.) Always consult your herbalist when including herbs into your diet. I do personally find it too stimulating to have before bed time , a little bit like caffiene. It does give a gentle caramel tone to the recipe. Overall this is a very energising recipe.
Enjoy! E x
