Homemade Natural Chocolate {Sugar-Free}

This is one of those recipes that I regret finding... a little... This homemade, naturally sweetened chocolate is as easy to make as it is to eat, which is dangerous for a chocoholic. Thankfully, it's made with good-for-me ingredients that I don't feel guilty about consuming!

This recipe is adapted from DIY Natural and is a must try for anyone who loves chocolate but wants to avoid unhealthy ingredients.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup almond butter (any kind of nut butter or sun butter would work)
  • 1/4 cup honey (original recipe calls for 1/3 cup but I found it to be too much)
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 cup cocoa
  • 1/4 - 1/2 tsp sea salt, optional

 

Directions

  1. In a small saucepan over low heat, combine coconut oil, nut butter, honey, and vanilla; stir until smooth
  2. Take off of the heat and add cocoa and sea salt; stir well with a whisk until smooth
  3. Pour chocolate mixture into a silicone candy mold or pan; I use an 8x8 silicone baking pan
  4. Place chocolates into freezer until solid, then pop out of molds or take out of pan and break into pieces
  5. Transfer to a sealed container and keep in the fridge or freezer (they contain coconut oil so they will melt if left at room temp)
