It is so good.
- 6 TBSP coconut oil
- 1 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 1/2 TBSP unsweetened cocoa powder
- 1 TBSP maple syrup
- 2 TBSP unsweetened shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup chopped almonds
Melt (not cook, just melt) coconut oil in a small saucepan.
Whisk in vanilla, cocoa, and maple syrup until completely dissolved. Failure to do this will result in separation and an oily top.
Whisk in remaining ingredients, making sure they are completely incorporated.
Pour mixture into pan and tip to evenly spread. Use an 8X8 pan (or 9X13 for a double batch) - lined with parchment paper.
Place pan in freezer for 10 minutes to harden. ENJOY!
For those with little ones - this treat melts quickly when handled by warm little hands, so have them sit at the table while eating it.
In the fact that it is mostly coconut oil, Coconutty-Almondy-Chocolatey-JOY makes for a terrific dessert. That deliciously wonderful fat will help you feel satiated in addition to making the most of the digestion of the good meal you just ate.
