Best Chocolate Ever!

chocolate bowlIn case you haven’t noticed my recipes are not exactly structured, so I thought I would share how I came up with my latest greatest chocolate recipe!

I’m busy working, going about my day.  I suddenly have a desire for something delectable – sweet and gooey, yet nutritiously dense and still good for me!

I go to the kitchen with no prepared plan.  I ask myself ‘what have I got?’  And I start.  This is what happened today….

I took a small bowl out and started adding things. Of course, I didn’t measure anything, I’ve just added approximate quantities!  Use what you feel works for you.

  • 2 Tablespoons of coconut oil with a rich coconut smell. Every brain needs more coconut oil.  It improves cognitive function in everyone!
  • 1 Tablespoons organic FRESHLY ground peanut butter NOW STOCKED AT MY LOCAL KROGER – thank you Kroger!!!
  • ½ Tablespoon honey, local raw organic
  • 1 Tablespoons organic pumpkin seeds now stocked by same Kroger!!
  • 1 Tablespoons roasted cashews also from Kroger
  • 1 Tablespoons of goji berries – because I just read more about their awesome anti-aging properties!  I love goji berries more than ever!
  • 1 Tablespoons hemp seed
  • 1 heaped teaspoon raw cacao powder

Best Choco EverI just spooned it into a smallish bowl and stirred.  No heating, nothing!  Just stirred it all until it was all mixed up and then spooned it into 4 small containers and popped them into the freezer because I decided I would share it with my family!  I was very tempted just to spoon it into my mouth – so they should really be thankful!

Alternatively I was thinking of plopping the whole bowl straight into the freezer to get hard and then spoon it into my mouth a bit later!

Anyway you look at it, it’s an instant chocolate bar worth 5000 times more than the highly processed stuff you can buy sold by large companies that I have been told exploit slave labor.  So it is a labor of love for my body, my taste buds and the welfare of Fair Trade.

Have you ever plunged into the delicious nutritious world of Fair Trade raw cacao?

  1. Most shoppers LOVE their boxed and frozen fare. I am a bit of an anomaly. There is no soda or Velveeta in my cart! I purposely shop the perimeter of the store for meats, dairy and produce with a few conveniences (bread, cereal) thrown in. This forces me to cook from scratch and menu plan whether I feel like it or not. You can even find coupons for healthier options.

    • Great point! Staying on the perimeter of the grocery store is the safest.

      Getting back to real food can be an adventure. Figuring out how to survive without the traditional morning bowl of cereal has been most liberating for me! I will never go back to buying cereal or eating bread! Life is so much better without it!
