This chocolate is quick, easy to make and tastes delicious! You can make it at home or while traveling; all you need is 4 ingredients and a fridge/freezer. Add nuts, dried fruit or flavouring to suit your taste buds.

It is gluten, lactose and refined sugar free, vegan and low FODMAP.

I use cacao which is full of iron, magnesium and is:
high in antioxidants
helps to stabilise blood sugar
contains dopamine and phenylethylamine which makes you feel good by improving mood.

You can substitute with cocoa for similar, but not as powerful, health benefits.

The next time you are craving chocolate why not give this a go?

1/4 teaspoon vanilla essence

Mix the cacao and maple syrup before adding coconut oil


Taste and add more maple syrup to sweeten if necessary. Mix in nuts, dried fruit, cacao nibs or flavouring at this stage if desired.
Spoon the mixture into ice cube tray or onto baking paper and fold into a rectangle. Refrigerate or freeze until set. The actual time will depend on how thick the mixture is. Freezing will set the chocolate quicker.
