Super Dark, Super Healthy Homemade Chocolate Recipe

This super dark, super healthy chocolate recipe can be made in 5 minutes with ingredients available in India! Ingredients are simple:

  1. 5 tbsp cocoa powder (unsweetened) – I recommend Hintz Cocoa Powder, 454g – Rs 700 or Rs 325 for 125g
  2. 5 tbsp unrefined virgin coconut oil – I recommend Merit Extra Virgin Coconut Oil (Pack of 3) (500 ML) – Rs 1125 OR KLF Nirmal VCO 500 ML (Full) – Rs 260
  3. 2 tsp sugar (powdered preferably)
  4. Splash of vanilla essence
  5. pinch of salt

(Lasts 1 chocoholic only 2 days 🙂 )

Tip: Don’t use Parachute coconut oil! While Parachute is edible, it is NOT virgin coconut oil. Doesn’t have the benefits of VCO (virgin coconut oil).


Method:

  1. Mix the cocoa powder and coconut oil in a bowl. You’ll be shocked to see how well and easily it mixes.
  2. Add sugar and salt
  3. Stir again
  4. Optional: Add anything else you want (walnuts, chilli powder :P)
  5. Pour into chocolate moulds or a flat dish on baking paper and put in the fridge.
  6. Once hardened you can break it into little pieces.

Review:

homemade chocolate recipeThis is a fantastic recipe which literally takes 5 minutes to make! More than that, it is very healthy. Good cocoa powder (like Hintz) has a whole bunch of health benefits (anti-oxidants, minerals, etc) and coconut oil is SUPER healthy for you (aids weight loss, vitamin E for anti-aging, etc, etc). It doesn’t have any added preservatives or crap that chocolate in the market will have.

Best of all — it barely has a coconutty flavour! Yep, I’m not the biggest fan of coconut oil taste wise, but this is just an incredible combination! Do it!

Is that a face I see??
