Organic Healthy Chocolate
Which kid does not like chocolate? Yeah actually chocolates are kids weakness and for me a way to bribe them to get things done.
Most store bought chocolate brands contain sugar or high fructose corn syrup and use soy lecithin as an emulsifier. Just reading the ingredients make my tummy hurt!
The ingredients used here are all easily available and are superfoods like Organic Extra Virgin Coconut oil which is rich in fat burning MCFA (medium chain fatty acids) and lauric acid. Its actually good for heart!
Organic Raw Cacao powder is purest form of chocolate you can ever consume, which means its raw and less processed than Cocoa powder. Its high in magnesium, phosphorous and iron and also super rich in antioxidants. Its also a very good source of fibre.
Organic raw honey is the most original sweet liquid that honeybees produce from the concentrated nectar of flowers that is unheated, unpasteurized, and unprocessed. It is an instant energy-building food containing all the essential minerals necessary for life, all of the B complex group, amino acids, enzymes, and other vital factor.
The recipe below is the basic chocolate recipe. You can add nuts, dried fruits or anything you like to suit your palate.
These are just melt in the mouth drops of heaven... And too easy to make so be aware, you are gonna get addicted to eat.
1/2 cup organic extra virgin coconut oil (melted)
1/2 cup organic raw cacao powder
3 tbsp organic raw honey
