Easter is a time where there can be a lot of guilt around what you eat, well my sparkling reader, don't I have a treat for you, a healthy one! Say hello to my homemade healthy chocolate recipe, which I've created this year especially for Easter (I do though plan to continue making it throughout the year).
These chocolates are dairy free, gluten free and refined sugar free, and if you switch out the honey, they are vegan too (honey is just my personal favourite sweetener). I am super proud of this recipe. I've made a healthy alternative to store bought chocolate for a long time, but this recipe is by far my best yet.
You will need.. saucepan + spoon + measuring spoons + chocolate mould + baking tray
4 tbsp coconut butter
3 tbsp coconut oil
1 tbsp smooth 100% peanut butter (or nut butter of choice)
1/2 tsp honey (or sweetener of choice)
1/4 tsp vanilla essence
2 tbsp cacao powder, sifted
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon, sifted
Melt in a saucepan over low heat coconut butter, coconut oil, peanut butter, honey and vanilla essence.
Stir while heating and until smooth then remove from heat.
Stir through sifted cacao powder and ground cinnamon until smooth.
Spoon tsp of mixture into desired mould.
Place mould on baking tray and set in freezer for 30 minutes before eating.
These will keep best in the fridge or freezer, removed just before eating.
Makes approx. mould tray and a half (depending on your chocolate mould)
Time approx. 35 minutes (including set time)
If you make these I would absolutely love to know what you think in the comments below, and if you take a photo please share it on Instagram and tag @sparkleondarling so I can see. I cannot wait for you to try these.
Happy Easter my sparkling readers.
All my love,
