Any chocolate addicts out there? My homemade version is smooth and ahhmazing but without any refined sugar or the artificial ingredients. Instead it’s packed with healthy medium chained fatty acids and minerals. It’s by far the EASIEST dessert you can make at home! I love the idea of fueling your brain and body with a sweet treat and with this one it’s oh so very easy 🙂
What age? If you swap honey for maple syrup or date syrup, it’s good before 12 months but I don’t like the idea of getting the babies used to sweet treats. Finio was offered his first chocolate when he was 14 months old. Before that he had plenty of fruit and healthy fats were part of our everyday diet.
The chocolate bar made in 22cm/9cm mold gives a beautiful chocolate that’s approx 8mm thick.
If you use coconut oli you’ll likely receive a milky layer at the top. It’s normal 🙂
- • 1/3 cup melted ghee or coconut oil (approx. 4 tbsp)
- • 1/3 cup carob/cocoa (I use a mix of both)
- • 1 tablespoon raw honey
- • 1 flat tablespoon homemade plum jam - optional
- • 2 teaspoons GROUND sesame seeds/nuts or shredded coconut
- • optional: a handful of puffed quinoa/amaranth/chopped nuts/chopped dried fruit
- 1. Melt ghee in a saucepan over medium heat. Remove from heat and add cocoa. Stir until well combined. Set aside for 5 minutes so it can cool down.
- 2. Once it's cooled down you can add honey and jam (can be skipped). Stir well. Add ground sesame seeds etc and stir. You can add dried fruit/chopped nuts/puffed quinoa etc.
- 3. Pour the mixture into a silicone mold (22cm/9cm) and put in the fridge or freezer to set. It should be ready in 30 minutes. Take it out and cut into pieces with a sharp knife.
- Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 month.
