Raw Cacao Chocolates – The Lovetarian Way:)
As you know I'm passionate about promoting plant based nutrition and I deeply believe that eating this way is a true win, win, win. It's great for your health, it's great for the Planet, it's great for the Animals.
They truly embody the Lovetarian Way in & out of the kitchen:) Everyone wins...
When I eat those chocolates, I feel amazing, I feel energised & my sweet tooth is fully satisfied.
I can honestly say that anyone who likes chocolate & tries those, loves them.
You can adjust the flavourings & level of sweetness to your preference.
Without further ado, here is the recipe.
Ingredients for 17 big chocolates - in a muffin form.
Basic chocolate ingredients:
- 22 tbs sp raw cacao
- 20 tbs virgin coconut oil
- 3 tbs cinnamon ceylon
- 0.5 tbs vanilla
- 2 tbs maple syrup or honey or agave nectar
- 10 drops of stevia - depends how sweet you like it
Optional ingredients to add flavour, nutrients & volume:
- berries fresh or dry
- nut butters
- coconut flakes
- orange peel
- pinch of chilli
- fresh mint
- pinch of Himalayan salt
If it's warm, the coconut oil will already be fluid.
If i's cold, you can place the jar of oil in a bowl with hot water and let it dissolve for a few minutes, you might want to stir it with a spoon to get it melt throughout.
In a bowl place all the basic ingredients & mix them well. The consistency will be slightly thick & fluid.
Taste if it's sweet enough for you. Add more stevia and flavours you like - orange peel, mint, himalayan salt, etc...
Now, place 2 tbs of the mix into muffin forms ( should easily yield 17 - they will fill the form 1/2)
Afterwords you can top up with nuts, berries, nut butter which will double the size.
Make sure that all the optional ingredients are touching the fluid - once it gets solid in the fridge, all ingredients will be bound.
Once you are done, place the forms in the fridge, give it 15 -20 mins and you can enjoy your chocolates.
Hope you enjoy them Beautiful!
Much love from me to you, Namaste xo
