Well what a crazy week. As some of you know I have had some major website issues in the last week. He (no idea why it is a he?!) has been very cranky and hence no posts. I didn’t want to push my luck now it is back up and seems to be working. Tonight I thought I’d try and post a new recipe given the massive backlog I have… fingers crossed he doesn’t break again.
We all know I love sugar. I am not denying it. Give me 600kgs of lollies and I’m a happy camper. But it doesn’t hurt to have a few healthier treats up your sleeve as well. This one is a MASSIVE hit with the kiddies.
I was watching a tv program a few weeks ago and caught the tail end of a recipe. It looked like a delicious chocolate but made with coconut oil, cocao and stevia from memory. I didn’t catch the quantities so thought I would have a play. The base of the recipe is similar to my Healthy Chocolate Crackles I posted last year.
What I love about this is you can change the flavours to suit your tastes – add some chia seeds, add some dessicated coconut, add chopped nuts or seeds. The world is your oyster.
I make the mixture up and then pour into my Zip Pops. I love this because I can then set them in the fridge or freezer and when I need them I simply push out of the Zip Pop and slice into discs and discard the wrapper. Easy peasy!
