Healthy 3 Ingredient Chocolate

Untitled

Are you someone who enjoys healthy treats but still want them to be simple and satisfying?  Then this recipe is for you!  These little molded chocolates are truly magical.  Not only have they been regularly satisfying my chocolate cravings, they’re simple, satisfying and oh so sinfully divine.  Did I also mention that they’re raw, vegan {if substituting the honey}, gluten and refined sugar free, no bake/cook with just 3 ingredients?  Oh, and they help boost your metabolism!  I told you that they’re magical.

My last chocolate recipe from scratch produced a more classic chocolate experience with a base of cacao butter but today, we’re making it a bit more healthy with coconut oil.  Coconut oil is one of the most nutrient dense parts of the coconut and is rich in lauric acid which our bodies convert into monolaurin.  This conversion is helpful for fighting off bacteria and infections in our bodies.  Coconut oils medium chain fatty acids are easily digested and sent right to the liver for energy production, giving the body an instant boost of energy while allowing better absorption of vitamins, minerals and amino acids into our bodies.  What better way to intake coconut oil than through the vehicle of chocolate?

These little gems are fast and easy to make.  It takes me about 15 minutes from start to finish to create 8 perfect little bites.  The hardest part of this recipe is waiting for the chocolates to chill and set but that really only takes a few minutes too.  I love using my seashell molds for these but you could also pour these into lined cupcake tins or a smaller pan lined with parchment.  Beyond that, the possibilities for flavor combinations are endless.  A bit of instant espresso will enhance the chocolate depth while fleur de sel will balance out the flavors.  A fine dusting of cayenne will give your chocolates a sexy kick and chia or hemp seeds or goji berries will take these up another healthier notch.  I’ve even been known to gift these with a sprinkle of edible stars.  Better still is that you could turn this into chocolate sauce/fondue, a coating for pretzels, truffles or bark, even.  So basically, these are not only healthier treats to indulge in for this halloween or any of the upcoming holidays, these make perfect little treats to share with your loved ones.

Serves: 8 Chocolates
Ingredients
  • 3 tb unrefined, virgin coconut oil*
  • 3 tb unsweetened cacao or cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tb honey {agave, brown rice syrup, etc}
Instructions
  1. Whisk everything together and pour into desired molds.
  2. Chill in the fridge/freezer until set.
  3. Mine took about 5 minutes to harden in the freezer and my seashell molds yielded 8 chocolates.
  4. I highly recommend keeping these chilled as they melt fairly quickly.
Notes
I like to make these when my house is warm so the coconut oil is already melted and it can be kept raw but if it's not, you can always heat it over the stovetop/microwave.
