Who on Earth doesn’t LOVE chocolate?!
I’m sure there are people out there, but for me and my family, we are obsessed! I can’t tell you how many times we are sitting around on a Friday night and we look at each other and say, “Should we go to the store for a candy run?” Agh! No! Sometimes the temptation is just too much, and who can eat all of that sugar and empty calories all of the time? Not us!
We need to have something on hand so when the chocolate and sugar cravings arise, we have a simple healthy alternative to grab – and it must satiate those nagging hankerings!
I was shocked to discover that my kids actually like and want these healthy chocolates. Generally speaking, they stay away from my “healthy” desserts, but in this case I have to keep them away so they don’t eat them all. I think it helped that this recipe is so easy they were able to make it themselves.
I started making homemade healthy chocolates years ago, but my kids weren’t exactly fans. I was on Pinterest the other day and I was reminded of the “healthy chocolate.” I decided to play around with a bunch of ingredients until I got what my family and I decided is the best ratio and formula.
After several attempts, and many thrown out batches, I think I came up with I consider to be the best homemade sugar free chocolate recipe. I sure hope you think so as well.
No more Friday night candy runs! This is our new go to chocolate.
What You’ll Need
3 heaping scoops of Chocolate Protein Powder of your choice– I used Arbonne
1/4 cup of Now Erythritol
10 drops of Now Dark Chocolate Stevia
1 teaspoon of unsweetened Cocoa
1/2 cup of Coconut oil
1 teaspoon of smooth peanut butter
Candy mold or Cupcake liners
How to Make it
In a small sauce pan over medium heat, add the Coconut oil, Peanut Butter, and Erythritol. Heat until the Erythritol, and Nut butter have dissolved, about 5-7 minutes. Remove from heat and add Protein Powder, Cocoa, and Stevia. Mix until the chocolate is smooth and creamy. Spoon into candy mold or cupcake liners. Place on a small baking sheet and place in freezer until solid– about 15 minutes. Store in the freezer for up to two weeks.
