Today I want to share one of my favorite treat recipes with you! This recipe is awesome for anyone who would like to cut sugar from their diet and add more protein and healthy fats. You will find that most of my recipes may seem a little odd, but believe me, your body will THANK YOU!
1/2 cup raw cacao butter
1/4 cup unpasteurized cultured butter or organic ghee (see my post here on selecting dairy products)
1/2 cup raw cacao powder
1/4-1/2 cup grade B real maple syrup (or sweetener of choice, I use 1-2 tsp green stevia leaf powder)
pinch of Celtic Sea Salt
1/2-1 tsp vanilla (I use raw ground whole bean)
sprouted nuts, seeds or nut/seed butters
spices, such as cinnamon, turmeric, ginger, and cloves
1-3 tsp of your favorite prebiotic powder, such as FOS
raw bee pollen sprinkles
Find a heat safe glass bowl that fits nicely in a pot without touching the bottom. Or if you have a double boiler, that is great too.
Pour about an inch of water into the pot. Place it on the stove over medium to medium high heat until it begin to just boil. Then turn it down to medium low and place the glass bowl over it (without the bottom touching the water).
Grate the cacao butter and measure it out while heating the water. Place the grated cacao butter into the glass bowl and let it start melting over the heat while you measure out the coconut oil.
Add the coconut oil and butter and whisk until well blended.
Then add the cacao powder, protein powder, and salt. Whisk again. When all melted, turn off the heat.
At this point, add the sweetener. Then whisk until completely smooth.
Once smooth, add any extras you like and stir well.
I find it best to use silicone molds. If you don't have any, you can use cup cake papers placed in a cupcake pan.
Pour the chocolate into container of choice and place in the freezer for 10-20 minutes, until it solidifies.
Once solid, you can store it in the refrigerator and delight yourself in the yumminess!
Guess what chocolate creations these will be! 🙂
