Chocolate Recipe (Healthy and Vegan!)

Hi friends! Today I wanted to share with you my favorite chocolate recipe, because who doesn't want more chocolate in their life?! I am a self proclaimed choco-peanut butter-aholic (is that a thing?!). Chocolate and peanut butter are my go to dessert craving. I am a firm believer in intuitive eating and never denying myself a food but instead making it in a healthier way. In this healthy chocolate recipe, there are no preservatives, high fructose corn syrup, or any other questionable ingredient. It's simple ingredients and easy to make recipe make it a go to for me. Plus you get all the benefits of the immunity boosting benefits of the raw honey and coconut oil. 

So here is my healthy version of chocolate :)

Healthy chocolate as a spread on an all natural graham cracker. YUM!

Vegan Chocolate Recipe:

1/4 c raw coconut oil

1/8 c raw honey

1/4 c cacao powder

pinch of salt

Combine the coconut oil and honey and warm on lowest heat setting until just melted. Remove from heat and stir in cacao powder and salt. Line a shallow dish or plate with plastic wrap or other non-stick material. Pour in chocolate mixture and put in the refrigerator to set. For a spreadable mixture, allow 30 minutes to set in fridge. If wanting a harder chocolate bar type firmness, allow mixture to set in freezer for at least an hour then break apart into chunks. (To maintain shape keep in freezer.)
