Heart Chocolates

Healthy chocolate

I blame my past as a sugar addict. I blame my trip to Rome a few weeks ago. But then I wonder, do I need to justify myself? This Heart Chocolates recipe is very good and they’re are bite size which may hopefully prevent you from over eating. But then again, would that be a bad thing? Not that much since they’re healthy. A super chocolate if you ask me. They contain only natural sugars and not a drop of dairy. And as you are used from me, I only used a couple of ingredients to make these bite size chocolate hearts.

Just don’t make the mistake I did. Don’t make too little….

I came up with the idea to make the healthy version of raw chocolate, but then with a little extra health benefit. I wanted the delicious chocolate taste, the chocolate experience that would melt in your mouth but with a hidden extra health benefit.

So coconut oil was for sure to be featured in this recipe to create the melty yumminess. All this together makes the best vegan chocolate ever. Creamy and rich and it melts in your mouth, just like chocolate made with dairy.

Did you know that intestinal parasites hate pumpkin seeds?

The healthy kick are the pumpkinseeds.  It’s loaded with a wide variety of nutrients ranging from magnesium, and calcium, to iron, protein and zinc. Pumpkin seeds also contain vitamin A and good fats.

healthy chocolate This doesn’t mean the other ingredients are not healthy though! They also give this chocolate a great nutritional kick!

Chocolate addicts please note, you are so much better off eating a piece of this healthy chocolate than a square of traditional chocolate.

Refrigerate until solid.
