When I first embarked on my health junkie path, cutting out refined sugar, dairy and a whole host of other nasties meant that chocolate was way off my menu! This was so tough for me, a self-confessed sugar addict, a chocoholic, a lover of the brown stuff…..I felt desperate and would without fail fall off the wagon every time.
Once I began to connect with other health nuts and shared my distress of not having chocolate in my life, I was very swiftly handed a raw chocolate recipe by a superfood goddess! The recipe was dairy-free, gluten-free, refined sugar-free……oh, and it was good for you too! This person is now one of my closest friends! Over the years I have adapted the recipe and played with different flavours and textures. This recipe here is my favorite version but always experiment to find what works for you.

I really love to use measuring ‘cups’ for my recipes because it’s easy and creates a more instinctive feel when you are cooking. You can purchase them really cheaply, they are easy to store, easy to clean and so quick to use. I got mine from a cooking shop called ‘Steamer Trading’ but a quick search on the internet and you will find plenty of options.
NOTE: You will also a suitable style silicone mould for your chocolates. Start with a small ice cube style version before you invest in getting fancy. My first raw chocolates were fish shaped.
