In an effort to come up with something to satisfy a craving for chocolate yet avoid any processed sugar I came up with this little recipe in which I surprised even myself with how amazingly rich and delicious it was!
I think this will be a great alternative to Halloween treats, Easter candy or other situations when you need a healthy GAPS alternative.
2/4 Cup Artisana Raw coconut butter (softened)
1/2 Cup melted coconut oil
1/4 Cup honey
1/2 Cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
1/4 Cup almond butter
1/2 Cup shredded unsweetened coconut
Mix all ingredients well. Pour into unbleached muffin tins, put in refrigerator for 2-3 hours until solid. Enjoy cold or freeze to save.
Try with peanut butter instead of almond butter or experiment with peppermint or vanilla for an added twist.
Disclaimer: If you are not used to eating healthy fats and oils resist the temptation to eat more than one of these at a time, they are very rich! Coconut oil has amazing health benefits, but when I first started taking it, I could only tolerate small amounts at a time. I made these in regular muffin tins, but mini muffins tins would make the perfect size candy.
