If you’re anything like me, you simply have to find a health alternative to all things chocolate. Since cocoa powder is allowed in the GAPS diet once digestive issues have been righted, I knew I had to come up with a source of chocolate that was sweetened with only honey.
The result was mouthwatering chocolate bliss.
Simple Homemade Chocolate Chips
2/3 cup organic virgin coconut oil
2/3 cup raw cocoa powder
2 tsp raw honey
Melt coconut oil over low heat on stovetop. Remove from heat. Add in cocoa powder and honey. Mix to incorporate.
Line rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper. Pour chocolate mixture evenly over paper. Place in freezer for 15 minutes.
Remove from freezer and place hardened chocolate onto cutting board. Using a large cleaver, chop chocolate in rows one direction, and then the other, forming chocolate chunks (whatever size you prefer).
Voila! A healthy alternative to a delightful treat! Keep in freezer until just before use, as they begin to melt quickly at room temperature.
Note: These melt when baked into cookies, so just be aware they sort of ooze out of the bottom of your cookies a little–but not too bad!
