The Spread

shachar blog2

The Ingredients:

‎2 T Coconut oil‎
‎4 T Raw cacao powder‎
‎4 T Pure maple syrup
‎1 t Pure vanilla extract‎
Pinch of Himalayan salt

Another part of your mission, important none the less, is to visit your ‎neighborhood health food store and get to know these foreign ‎products…‎

In cooler temperatures the coconut oil will be solid. Start by placing ‎the jar in a bowl of boiling water. In just a few moments you will have ‎enough liquid to use.‎

Add all of the ingredients, with the exception of the cacao powder, ‎and whip by hand. Once the mixture is thoroughly blended, fold the ‎cacao powder in three equal portions while whipping in between until ‎a smooth cream like texture is obtained.‎

‎I welcome you to tinker with the flavor. For example add in grated ‎lemon or orange zest or even cayenne pepper!

If you are looking for treats to take along to athletic activities, try ‎dipping almonds or other nuts in the spread and then stuffing dried ‎dates with them. Yummy!‎

Hi Helenie Beanie and all those names that are so fit for a queenie!

I made similar healthy chocolate with Whalen in CA, also adding melted raw cacao butter, which we poured into little heart-shaped molds in trays and chilled. I later got a precious picture in the mail of Whalen's chocolatey handprints, mouth and nose print!

Grand website and easy for me to participate. Love you!
