When I first embarked on my health junkie path, cutting out refined sugar, dairy and a whole host of other nasties meant that chocolate was way off my menu! This was so tough for me, a self confessed sugar addict, a chocoholic, a lover of the brown stuff…..I felt desperate and would without fail fall off the wagon every time.
Once I began to connect with other health nuts and shared my distress of not having chocolate in my life, I was very swiftly handed a raw chocolate recipe by a superfood goddess, this recipe was dairy free, gluten free, refined sugar free……oh, and it was good for you too! This person is now one of my closest friends! Over the years I have adapted the recipe and played with different flavours and textures. This recipe here is my favourite version but always experiment to find what works for you.
I really love to use measuring ‘cups’ for my recipes because it’s easy and creates a more instinctive feel when you are cooking. You can purchase them really cheaply, they are easy to store, easy to clean and so quick to use. I got mine from a cooking shop called ‘Steamer Trading’ but a quick search on the internet and you will find plenty of options.
