We all LOVEEEEEEEEEE Chocolate don’t we??? OH MY GOODNESS! I love the stuff and who could of thought it could be so good for us!
All chocolate is made from Cocao. Chocolate consists of just one ingredient. NO SUGAR! NO DAIRY! NO CHEMICALS! JUST COCAO!
COCAO is a SUPERFOOD! It is high in Antioxidants, Magnesium, Iron, Chromium, Manganese, Zinc, copper, Vitamin C, Omega-6 fatty Acids, Phenylamine, Anandamide, Tryptophan, Serotonin, Fiber.
So it contains alot and thats why it makes our bodies so happy when we eat it but when cocao is cooked alot of these great things are killed… For example the Omega-6 fatty Acids turn rancid making them trans-fats… YUCKY! SO throw away the cadbury and GO RAW with chocolate! Once you get into it you will never look back!
Tonight after dancing I was feeling like a treat so I threw a few things together and this is what I got –
CHOC COCONUT ROLLS
1/4 cup ground Linseeds
1 cup Raw Almonds
1/2 cup Cocao
1 cup medjool dates
pinch sea salt
- In a food processor grind the almonds and Linseeds together
- Add the cocao and salt
- Throw in the Medjool dates
- When it has formed a soft dough take out of the food processor and roll into logs
- Cover in coconut
And there you have it… DELICIOUS RAW CHOCOLATE!
