Making your own chocolate is an absolute game changer. Not only is this a guilt-free dessert, but it actually has beneficial properties. Some people have been known to correct their iron deficiencies just by adding organic raw cocoa powder to their meals and desserts everyday. Raw cocoa powder is not only rich in iron and magnesium, but it also has antioxidant properties. The key is to buy the good stuff from a health food store, and to gently sweeten it with a banana, maple syrup or local honey. When you add coconut oil to the mix ... you've got fudge baby.
I like to add walnuts for texture and brain boosting properties. Make a batch at the beginning of the week and store in the freezer for your chocolate fix through the week. The good thing is, it's so nutrient dense and rich, you'll often feel satisfied with one (maybe two 😉). Therefore; no need to binge.
