About a week ago I was with Ronin at our favorite little outside lunch spot. It was completely empty except for one other lady who sat at the table right next to us. My first impression of her was that she looked young for her age (she was probably around 50). Her skin was perfect, she had almost no wrinkles and she was in amazing shape. She was not wearing a stitch of makeup (hey I notice these things) and seemed to just ooze this healthy happy glow. I was feeding Ronin and she commented on how cute he was. She went on to say that she was a new Grandma and we began to chat. We started to talk about food and she told me that she was a nutritionist who also specialized in muscle testing for specific food alergies. So interesting and I can not wait to make an appointment!
Anyway I told her I eat a Paleo diet and she said, "Oh I have the most amazing and easy recipe for Paleo dark chocolate!" Of course I needed to hear this. In the original recipe she said something about adding raw cashews but for the life of me I could not remember how exactly I was supposed to do this so I left that out and it still turned out awesome. So thanks to the beautiful random stranger, named Sue I bring you a chocolate recipe that you most definitely need in your life.
What you will need:
- 1 cup of unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1/2 cup of melted coconut oil
- 1/3 cup of honey
- a few dashes of sea salt
- Mix all of the ingredients together in a bowl.
- Pour the chocolate batter onto a parchment lined baking sheet and speed it around evenly.
- Place the baking sheet with chocolate into the freezer and freeze for about 30 minutes or until it is set.
- EAT and enjoy!
This is incredible and I highly suggest you pair this with wine (I sound fancy but trust me I'm not) like my husband and I did the night I made it. You can also get creative and add whatever add ins you like... such as bacon, cranberries, flavored stevia, pistachios, almonds, orange peel or whatever your little chocolate loving heart desires.
