If you’re in love with chocolates like me (I’m IN LOVE!! with chocolates, big time), I can understand if it’s really difficult for you to stay away the heavenly taste. Buuuut (a big but :P), you can always choose a healthy variety… okay, less sinful. 😛
Or… you can always make your own chocolate!! 😉
You will need:
- 4 oz pure cacao beans (I think cocoa powder will do, but I’m not sure)
- 2 tbsp raw honey
- 1 packet stevia powder
- vanilla almond milk (optional)
Depending on how bitter-sweet you want your chocolate to be, you can adjust the measurements. Place ingredients in a sauce pan, place under medium heat and mix well until melted.
When I made this, the consistency was not very thick, but after cooling at room temp and placing the finished product in the fridge, it hardened into a bar. I like mine more on the bitter side though.
Seeing that my first chocolate recipe was not such a big hit, I made some Chocolate Syrup instead. 😀
Home-made Chocolate Syrup
- cocoa powder – 1 tbsp
- water – 2 tsp
- honey – 2 tsp (raw or unfiltered, your choice, just go natural)
- Mix well. Drizzle!
I drizzled it on top of my favorite overnight oats!! Original recipe from Gina of Fitnessista.com.
- 1/2 cup oats (I used quick cooking this time, but you can use old fashioned oats)
