Delicious bites of dark chocolate with a peanut crunch. The perfect treat after you have completed the 28-Day Be Healthy Program.

If you want to make this dairy-free and gluten-free choose your dark chocolate wisely by reading the label and checking for milk and gluten in the ingredient list.

My friend Anne Noonan has some delicious treat recipes and this is a favourite one.  Enjoy with a cup of herbal tea or a USANA Rev3 drink. 

Ingredients

 ½ cup coconut oil
 1 tbsp cacao* powder
 1 tbsp organic peanut butter
 ½ block dark chocolate - try a quality one like Lindt 80% (not milk chocolate)
 1 tbsp maple syrup (or less depending upon taste)
 1 pinch pink Himalayan sea salt or Maldon sea salt (choose the best quality salt you can afford and make sure it does not contain additives)

Directions

1

Mix coconut oil, cocao powder, dark chocolate and peanut paste in a medium pan.

2

Heat the pan on stove at a low heat and warm until the ingredients have melted and are well combined. Do not boil.

3

Pour into silicon moulds (or if you don’t have one of those, use cup cake baking cups) and freeze.

Note: double the ingredients and make extra for friends who drop
in. Store in the freezer to keep from melting. If you would prefer,
swap the peanut paste for chopped brazil nuts and currants.

You can add any extra ingredients that appeal to you. For example,
shredded coconut, blueberries, cranberries or goji berries.

*Cacao powder (and no, I have not misspelt it 🙂 ) is the rawest form of
of chocolate. It maintains the nutrients that are destroyed by
conventional processing as the beans are processed at low heat to
separate the cocao butter from the beans. It is high in tryptophan
which can help enhance mood. You will generally find it in your
local organic whole food health stores like Fundamentals, Mrs
Flanneries or Kunara.
