25 May / Dairy-Free, Refined Sugar-Free RAW Chocolate


Sorry for the delay folks – I had company in town last weekend.

Here is a great chocolate recipe – it’s a rich, decadent fix for chocolate cravings and with the agave nectar – won’t spike your blood sugar. Also, I often double this recipe for a thicker chocolate bar. Enjoy!

1/2 c coconut oil
1/2 c agave nectar
1/2 c organic cacao powder (carob powder would work too)
1 t vanilla extract
1/4 c chopped almonds (walnuts, pecans – or any nut you prefer) – optional
1/4 c shredded coconut (unsweetened) – optional

Blend all ingredients in food processor or blender until mixture is smooth, except for almond chunks. Pour into an 8×8 pan or round cake pan. Put in freezer for 1.5 hours or until set. Keep in freezer and cut bars out as needed.

Happy Eating!
Heather :)

    Wow these look amazing, thanks to Michele for posting a link to here on her facebook….I make something really similar to these, I call them Raw Vegan Chocolate Freezer Brownies. The major difference in mine is the addition of dates, and no coconut oil.

    Question, can you taste the coconut oil? I am not a big fan..sorry :( Or could you skip it do you think?

    The smoothness of these looks incredible.

    I just found your blog, sweet!

    If I wanted to substitue the agave nectar for Xylitol do you know how much I should use?

    Thank you
