- 3 tablespoons coconut oil
- 4 tablespoons cocoa powder
- 3 tablespoons agave syrup (you can also use maple syrup)
- handful of roasted almonds
- optional: you can also add other kinds of nuts or even dried cranberries
Kitchen equipment needed
- Small saucepan
- Cling film
- Small airtight container (preferably square)
- Chefs knife + cutting board
Preparation — 5 minutes
COAT the airtight container with cling film and set aside. Roughly chop the almonds or other nuts using a chefs knife and cutting board.
HEAT coconut oil in the small saucepan and let it melt slowly. Use a whisk to stir in the cocoa powder, mix well until you’ve reached a smooth mixture. Remove the small saucepan from the heat before adding the agave syrup, this step is important to keep the mixture smooth. Adding the agave while the mixture is still on the heat will result in a thickened mixture and that’s not what we want.
Making sugar-free dark chocolate bites
ADD almonds, cranberries or other nuts to the mixture. POUR into the prepared container and refrigerate until firm. That will take about an hour, or speed it up by placing it in the freezer for about 10 minutes.
USE a sharp knife to cut the chocolate bar into pieces. Enjoy this sugar-free dark chocolate bites with a cup of coffee or tea. It’s a great replacement for regular chocolate for people who can’t eat sugar. It’s so easy, so give it a try!
You can also add a little bit of water instead of the nuts, then you can easily spread it onto a slice of bread.
