How to Make Simple Coconut Oil Chocolates that Taste Amazing | Mother Rising

This year I have radically changed my diet, which has allowed me to lose more than 30 pounds. (I’ll share more about that on another day. Promise!)  One of the big things I have done is remove refined sugar from my diet, and limit other kinds of sugars as well. And limit carbs. However, sometimes a girl needs a sweet treat, especially at night. In this post I will share with how to make simple coconut oil chocolates that taste amazing, that are good for you too and could be an integral part of your weight loss plan. You can do it, mamas!

Here's how to make easy coconut oil chocolates that taste amazing and are good for you too! Only six ingredients and dairy free, gluten free & grain free!

Coconut Oil Chocolate Ingredients

These coconut oil chocolates have only six ingredients, none of which I would say are bad for you in moderation. In fact, some of them are extremely healthy! The six ingredients are unrefined coconut oil, cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, SweetLeaf stevia powder and pink Himalayan salt. If possible, I try to buy these ingredients organic.

Unrefined Coconut Oil

Coconut oil has many benefits. It is a healthy fat that you can feel good about eating. My favorite thing about coconut oil, however, is that it makes breast milk better by increasing the immunity of the baby. Isn’t that amazing?! Mothers who ingest and use coconut oil topically will make their breastmilk better by strengthening its antimicrobial properties.

Here’s a brand of coconut oil that I like (link).

Coconut oil is delicious! In fact, here are more Mother Rising coconut oil recipes that taste great and are good for you too!

Cacao Powder

Cacao powder tastes great, but also has a rich supply of magnesium, dietary fiber and antioxidants.

I like this brand (link).

Maple Syrup

Maple syrup is how we get these chocolates to taste good. Maple syrup tastes AMAZING paired with cacao powder. I’ve tried this recipe with no maple syrup, only sweetened with stevia. It wasn’t good. Don’t do it! If you would like less sugar try cutting the maple syrup in half.

I’ve tried this maple syrup before (link). Yum!

Vanilla Extract

Coconut oil chocolates and vanilla extract go together like peas and carrots. Just like Forest Gump and Jenny.

Here’s a link to the one I buy (link). However, you can easily make your own vanilla extract!

Sweet Leaf Natural Stevia Sweetener (optional)

Here’s where I might loose some of you. In order to put less maple syrup in the recipe (for less sugar) and it still taste good, I added some stevia.

I think a little bit of maple syrup and a little bit of Sweet Leaf stevia is the perfect combination (link). You could even try the Sweet Leaf drops (link)! It would probably mix together easier…

Pink Himalayan salt (optional)

Adding a pinch of salt just makes these already delicious coconut oil chocolates delicious-er. Because that’s a word.

I use pink Himalayan salt (link). Costco usually has a good price on this, by the way.

Coconut Oil Chocolates Directions

Step 1:  Mix all ingredients together in a bowl.

Notice how my coconut oil is in the in between state of liquid and solid. My thermostat is set at 76 degrees and coconut oil begins to get solid at that temperature. If your home is warmer than 76 degrees your coconut oil will be liquid, making it easy to combine ingredients. If your home is cooler, you might need to heat the coconut oil to allow ingredients to combine effectively.

I ended up having to heat my mixture in the microwave for less than a minute. You could also mix the ingredients on the stove at low heat.

After the mixture is melted and combined well, pour into an ice cube tray. This recipe will make 12 cubes of chocolate. Success!

After they are frozen, which may take between 30 and 60 minutes, pop them out of the ice cube tray.

Store them in a freezer Ziploc (link) or other container. I limit myself to one per day. Somehow, they’re gone within a week. Hmmmm…

I have found that when making homemade chocolates you can reduce some of that “ oily “ taste by replacing half of the coconut oil with cacao butter. A good source of different nutrients and they are very tasty. You can order cacao butter from Amazon.
