In Paleo Chocolate News: 

This recipe is so easy and cheap, I would rather make my chocolate than buy it at the store! 

So for those of you unfamiliar with Paleo – This recipe is gluten free, processed sugar free and dairy free – but yet still creamy and sweet. (Can you hear the angels singing, too?!) 

Moreover, you can make it whatever you want it to be… If you like it really bitter, you can add less maple syrup. If you like it with nuts or peppermint for the holidays – go for it!

I have a serious chocolate craving, d.a.i.l.y. So, finding a paleo recipe for this was gold. Gold! 🙂

Now how to make Homemade Paleo Chocolate…

For this recipe, I really like to have a medium heat so that it comes together quickly, then I can get it in the freezer and eat it quicker – haha!

I use these stainless steel pans so I don’t have to worry about my whisk ruining the bottom – plus they’re really easy to throw in the dishwasher or wash by hand quickly. 

Recently, I went away from using non-stick pans when was gifted the stainless steel set for Christmas last year. So, I enjoy not having to worry about a non-stick surface chipping off with these!

  • Measure coconut oil and melt in a small saucepan on medium heat. 
  • Once completely melted, whisk in the Organic Cacao Powder until completely dissolved, then reduce heat to lowest setting.
  • Next, whisk in your maple syrup. Note: The syrup likes to sink to the bottom and then will only be on the bottom of your chocolate mixture, so make sure you whisk thoroughly. 
  • Optional: Add flavorings or additional ingredients here, such as peppermint candies, nuts, etc. 
  • Add mixture into parchment paper lined bread tins or any other baking pan with sides. Optional: Add your toppings to the mixture at this point.
  • Freeze for 1 hour and chocolate will be ready to eat/serve. Tip: Due to the coconut oil, you will want to keep this chocolate in the freezer.

I really love Navitas Organic Cacao Powder because it is non-dairy and almost no caffeine. According to livestrong.com regular cocoa powder has 198 milligrams of caffeine, whereas cacao powder only has 12 milligrams of caffeine.

What this means? I can eat it my chocolate all night if I wanted. Ha! AND it has vitamins and minerals unlike regular cocoa powder. So awesome.

I really love the flavor of maple syrup in this recipe. For instance, I have tried recipes where there was honey and let’s face it, it’s just not the same. Maple syrup has a really great caramel-y flavor like brown sugar. Thus, it is a great fit in this paleo chocolate recipe.

Toppings & More…

You can add vanilla to enhance the depth of flavor. I really love McCormick’s Vanilla as it is gluten-free – which you can find here. You can also add peppermint, nuts, dried fruit – whatever you like in your creamy chocolate. So, it is super versatile!
