How to Make Chocolate Bars with Coconut Oil

loading...


I love chocolate. Fortunately, for all the chocolate lovers out there, studies have proven that dark chocolate is really good for you. It is loaded with antioxidants and has many health benefits, including lowering cholesterol and blood sugar. Dark chocolate has magnesium, which helps relax the nervous system and muscles; build teeth and bones. Dark chocolate also contains copper, which is needed for  metabolic functions in the body.

Making your own chocolate is not hard at all.  Simply mix cocoa powder with coconut oil (here) , vanilla, salt & sugar together, and  you can create a chocolate bar that is both healthy and delicious!

Coconut Oil Chocolate: The Best Metabolism-Boosting Snack

  • 3/4 cup  Coconut Oil
  • 6 tablespoons raw cacao
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • dash of salt

Melt oil if needed. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Pour into molds, about 1 tablespoon each. An ice cube tray works well. Place in the fridge or freezer. Sets up in about 10-15 minutes.

Coconut oil is one of the most powerful metabolism-boosting foods on the planet. I raised my body temperature (and my metabolic rate) by a full degree in less than a week, simply by eating coconut oil! It’s pretty amazing stuff.
“Coconut oil is renowned for its ability to assist with metabolic rate and body heat, but any source of coconut will do. The medium-chain saturated fatty acids seem to be the active warming ingredient. Coconut is of course very calorie dense with a low water content, and cooking foods in oil of any kind increases the calorie to water ratio [to create a warming effect from your foods].”  Eat for Heat, Matt Stone
