Crazy Easy Raw Blueberry Chocolate

Raw chocolate couldn’t be any easier to make than this! That’s because the recipe doesn’t contain cacao butter but instead, coconut oil which is quicker to melt (and you don’t need to grate anything). Just basically mix all the ingredients together, spread on a container, let the chocolate freeze for about 15 minutes and enjoy! You can use your imagination for the toppings: roasted nuts or seeds, goji berries, sprouted buckwheat, mulberries, quinoa pops or choose your own favourite.

How to sprout buckwheat? See a 4-minute video tutorial by Russel James – The Raw Chef – here. For this purpose, it’s enough to sprout the buckwheat just for 24 hours. That’s when you should see those small cute “tails” developing. Dry the sprouted buckwheat before adding them to chocolate. If you don’t own a food dehydrator, you can place sprouted buckwheat in the oven (spread on a baking sheet), 40°C=100°F for as long as they are dry. Just keep the oven door slightly open to remove the developing moisture.

Buckwheat

Buckwheat has an impressive nutritional profile and it’s gluten-free despite the name (wheat). Buckwheat is essential for cleaning and strengthening intestines due to its insoluble fibrous properties. It has higher levels of minerals than other grains, esp. zinc, copper, manganese and magnesium. It’s also a great source of quality proteins and fatty acids. Sprouting increases buckwheat’s nutritional value many times.

Coconut Oil

This tropical oil is made from the dried fruit (nut) of the palm tree. Coconut oil is high in saturated fats and medium-chain fatty acids (MCFAs). These are easily absorbed in the liver for instant and sustained energy, also giving fuel to the brain cells as ketones. Coconut oil can eliminate mental fatigue, help with memory problems, increase the healthy cholesterol and lower the risk of heart disease. These healthy fats in coconut oil can also improve blood sugar regulation and the capacity to combat harmful bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. For example, lauric acid in coconut oil is known to reduce candida.

Raw Cacao

Raw cacao is claimed to have a lot of health benefits! For example, it can improve your memory, increase your bliss, reduce heart disease, shed fat, boost immunity, and boost your energy.

Wild Blueberries / Blueberry Powder

Wild blueberries are the king of antioxidant food that can reduce DNA damage. They are great for brainpower and memory improvement, healthy bones and healthy heart and so much more.

Goji berries

Daily consumption of goji berries may improve overall well-being, and improve psychological performance and gastrointestinal functions. Goji berries may strengthen the immune system and increase memory and focus improvements. The high antioxidant content of goji berries is believed to benefit vision.

Ingredients

  • 1.2dl=0.5c Virgin Coconut oil
  • 1.2dl=0.5c Raw cacao powder
  • 1 tablespoon Blueberry powder
  • 1 tablespoon coconut nectar or organic honey
  • few drops organic Stevia
  • 1 tablespoon Lucuma powder (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla powder or 0.5 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a saucepan, melt the coconut oil over low heat (or in microwave in a microwave-proof dish). Remove from heat and whisk in the cacao powder and the rest of the ingredients until smooth.
  2. With a spatula, spoon the chocolate mixture onto a container or a plate with edges, so that you get about 1/4-1/2 inch thick layer. Sprinkle on the toppings of your choice. See the notes below.
  3. Place into freezer on a flat surface for about 15 minutes, until frozen solid.
  4. Once frozen, break apart into pieces or cut into bars.
  5. Store in the freezer until ready to eat because the coconut melts quickly when placed in room temperature.

Notes

For topping the chocolate, wait until it has almost solidified, to prevent the ingredients to sink deep into the chocolate and instead stay on the surface. You can use the following ingredients for example: Goji berries Mulberries Quinoa Pops Sprouted Buckwheat
