My aim is to inspire you. This is really really easy. Chocolate is also good for you – so you can eat it without guilt. Raw chocolate has even been shown to be beneficial in weight loss! Chocolate is a great source of iron, zinc and other important minerals that our bodies need. It is much better than a mineral supplement!
I want you to be so motivated that you jump up and go and make yourself some raw chocolate.
Then you share it with everyone you know.
I don’t know why. I just want to share the love!
This chocolate was made with ingredients I had available at the end of a month! This is what I did today, because that is the stuff I had.
- about 1/2 cup coconut oil
- about 1/3 cup smooth organic peanut butter
- about 1/4 cup honey
Melted in a saucepan on the lowest heat, stir occasionally. Once this mixture is melted, add:
- pinch Himalayan salt
- 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 heaped teaspoons raw cacao powder
Almost optional ingredients can be processed in a blender and then added to the chocolate mixture. This is what I used today, allowing some chunkiness:
- about 1/2 cup of a raw mix of fruit and nuts (almonds, sunflower seeds, cranberries, cashews)
- a handful (about 1/3 C) cacao nibs
- a handful (about 1/3 C) goji berries
Stir together and then put into whatever you have: silicon chocolate molds, BPA free plastic containers, glass dish. Put it in the freezer to get hard. Store in either the refrigerator or the freezer. It will melt at room temperature.
