Making your own paleo chocolate at home is easy and doesn’t take long at all. Here’s a simple recipe for a delicious chocolate bark filled with nutrient-rich ingredients and free from refined sugar. You can mix things up and try adding different flavour combinations such as goji berries, different varieties of nuts and seeds or extra shredded coconut for a healthy coconut rough.
Paleo Chocolate Ingredients
1 cup cocao butter
6-7 tbs cocao
2 tbs rice malt syrup (or maple syrup, a little sweeter)
1/2 cup toasted shredded coconut
1tsp vanilla extract
1 tbs bee pollen
2 tbs petitas
2 tbs golden linseeds
2 tbs chia seeds
Small pinch sea salt
Fill a medium-large saucepan 1/3 full of water, place a heat resistant bowl over the saucepan (and ensure the bowl is not touching the water).
Bring the water to a simmer and pop the cocao butter in the bowl. Once melted throw in the cocao, salt and vanilla extract and gently whisk together.
Put a fry pan on a high heat for 1-2 minutes. Pop the shredded coconut in and remove from the heat. Keep tossing the coconut to ensure it doesn’t burn in the residual heat.
Line a baking tray with baking paper and throw in the coconut. Remove the bowl from the pan and pour the chocolate mixture over the coconut. While the chocolate is still wet sprinkle in the seeds and bee pollen.
Pop it in the fridge for 2 hours. Once chilled break a piece off and enjoy.
