"skinny" chocolate

What could be better than chocolate that is 100% good for you? It is called skinny because it is slimming as long as it is eaten without carbs. What's more it is also a treasure for those who thought they had to renounce chocolate forever due to sugar. Sweetened with stevia and packed with health benefits this superfood is a staple in my house. It only requires a few ingredients and takes just a few minutes to make. Plus there are so many variations on the basic recipe that you can enjoy whatever kind you are in the mood for: sweet, salty, fruity, spicy; it is up to you.  Adapted from Trim, Healthy Mama


1 cup coconut oil, heated just until it liquifies
1/2 cup cocoa powder
dash vanilla
stevia to taste (I use 2 packets of stevia in the raw)
optional: almond or peanut butter, nuts, coconut, dried fruit, mint or fruit extract, spice

Stir ingredients together. Pour onto wax paper lined plate or pan (I use an 8 x 8 baking pan). Chill in refrigerator or freezer. Snap pieces off as needed. It's that simple.
