Orange-Almond Chocolate Crunch

Orange-Almond Chocolate Crunch
 Adapted from this recipe for chocolate-covered bananas! Perfect GAPS-friendly chocolate. 

 

We didn’t eat any ‘chocolate’ or cacoa/cocoa while on GAPS for the first 3 or so months.  Honestly, we didn’t start missing it until around then, and started using it a little bit.  We seemed to have digestive issues with it then, but it seems like we do okay with it now.  After making the chocolate covered banana recipe, we realized that when you mix cocoa/cacoa with coconut oil and let it harden in the freezer….it makes SOLID CHOCOLATE!! How amazed we were.  Here is my fun twist on your typical chocolate bar.  Its quick, raw, full of minerals, fats and quick honey energy. The perfect snack? I’d say so.  

 

 

 

RECIPE:

2/3 raw cacoa powder (cocoa would work too)

2 C coconut oil

1 C slivered almonds

1 C unsweetened coconut

4 T raw honey & 4 servings stevia

2 t vanilla extract

½ t sea salt

½ t orange oil

 

  1. Mix together chocolate and coconut oil until incorporated.

  2. Stir in the rest of the ingredients.

  3. Check for sweetness factor, add more honey/stevia if needed.

  4. Line a large baking sheet with sides with parchment paper; if any of the sheet is showing brush with coconut oil.

  5. Pour chocolate mix onto tray, freeze until hardened and break into chocolate pieces. (about 15 minutes)

    Store in fridge/freezer in container.

15 minutes in freezer and its hard and ready to crunch!

15 minutes in freezer and its hard and ready to crunch! Yum!
