Coconut Oil Chocolates (Clean Eating, Low Fodmap, Dairy Free, Gluten Free)

I am a huge follower of damy health www.damyhealth.com while on my clean eating phase, sadly though clean eating is very hard for me to do as many of the ingredients are high fodmaps, like chickpeas, honey, garlic, onion, many fruits/veg.  Occasionaly though I can find an appropriate meal or treat to eat thats clean.   Chocolate doesnt always sit well with me and I then clicked,  what about Amy’s clean eating chocolate recipe it uses simple ingredients that are low fodmaps and clean and the base is coconut oil,  which is amazing in itself and very very good for you!  I made a small batch as a trial and it was awesome!!!     This is great to make up and use as ice magic as it taste so much like ice magic!   Remember though that moderation is the key,  this is your typical treat option.

So here is this awesome chocolate recipe.  (the amount of cocoa/maple depends on taste, start with 1/4 cup of cocoa blend and then test, you can add more if needed or more maple syrup)

Coconut Oil Chocolate

1 Cup Virgin Coconut Oil (Room Temperature)

1/4 to 1/2 Cup unsweetened Cocoa Powder

1/4 to Cup Pure 100%  Maple Syrup

1/2 Tsp Vanilla Extract

*flavour ideas see below*

In a food processor combine all ingredients, stopping to scrape down the sides until well combined and smooth. Spray chocolate molds with coconut oil spray and  Pour mixture  into chocolate molds.  Or you can use mini muffin tin and scoop 1 tablespoon of mixture per mini muffin cup (spray first with coconut oil spray).   Put in the fridge (or freezer if you cant wait!)  for a couple of hours to set.

This recipe is great as you can make up any flavour you want really,  why not add in a 1-2 teaspoons of your favourite flavoured essence or oil  like pepperment or hazelnut or what about bailey’s irish cream!!   You can make a jaffa flavour by adding orange essence and the list goes on!!!

Another way is by putting everything in a sauce pan and mixing till all melted then pour into moulds and freeze,  I have done this melted option and it works fine.  But make sure you stir often while pouring so the sweetness doesnt sit at the bottom, the first few your pour will be less sweet and the last few will be nice and sweet.
