Chocolate... OR Super-easy-can't-eat-dairy-or-refined-sugars-but-that's-okay-because-I-can-eat-this Kind of Chocolate :)
Okay, so if you can eat a chocolate bar without the horrifying digestive after effects, please do. It's easier and can satisfy a sweet-tooth in no time.
However, if you can't, like myself. Try this.
Whips up in a few minutes. Then, just freeze and eat as the cravings hit you. Or melt 30 sec in the microwave for chocolate sauce.
Total Time: 5 minutes prep + 30+ minutes in the freezer or fridge
1/2 cup coconut oil
1/2 cup maple syrup or honey
1/2 cup cocoa powder
1 tsp vanilla
pinch sea salt
What to do:
1) Melt all ingredients together over medium heat, or for added convenience, in a jar for 30 seconds or so in the microwave! Use a fork or whisk to bring together, or just put the cap on the jar and shake.
2) If the coconut keeps separating, place it in the fridge for a little bit to cool it down. Then try mixing again. Or, you can add a bit more maple syrup, which sometimes help to keep it together.
3) For hard chocolate: Pour mixture in a parchment-lined brownie pan, smooth to flat, and place in freezer for 30+ minutes.
4) OR for chocolate sauce: Keep in a jar. Use immediately, or store in refrigerator and heat for 30 seconds and shake well.
