So many people worry that giving up sugar also means giving up chocolate, but that’s definitely not the case. In fact – and we’re not joking when we say this – chocolate can actually be good for you. As long as it’s in a form as close as possible to its natural state, that is… So that means none of the processed chocolate you’ll find lining the junk food aisle of your local supermarket! There are some decent dark chocolate brands out there with high-quality bars, but often they don’t come cheap. If you’re on a budget, making your own sugar-free chocolate recipe might be something to consider – and it’s easier than you think!
Sugar-Free Chocolate Recipe
- 200g cacao butter
- 1/2 cup + 2 tbsp raw cacao powder
- Rice malt syrup/sweetener of choice (we used 6 tablespoons in our chocolate. You can use more or less, depending how sweet you’d like it to be)
- Toppings, such as almonds, cacao nibs or dried fruit
- Melt cacao butter in a small saucepan slowly over low heat. Do not allow it to boil.
- Add the raw cacao powder and stir until it is mixed in with the cacao butter.
- Add the rice malt syrup, stirring it in and tasting as you go. When you’ve reached the desired sweetness, remove from the stove.
- Pour into a lined brownie pan and set in the fridge until solid.
