Most people love chocolate but believe that they have to live without it on a strict diet. I've come up with a way to make it part of my diet and nowadays I eat chocolate almost every day. Since I'm on a macro type diet, I can choose where I get my fats from so I started experimenting with three of my favorite products from Fitnessguru, coconut oil, peanut butter and almond butter. I use either peanut butter or almond butter and mix it 75/25 with coconut oil. I then add between 6-12g of Green & Black's Organic Cocoa Powder, some raw organic vanilla seeds or vanilla extract and finally some sort of sweetener (Stevia, Xylitol or Sucralos). The chocolate taste absolutely amazing (it feels like cheating) and I've played around with other extracts such as peppermint, rum, custard, caramel, coconut, coffee, maple, hazelnut, banana, strawberry and orange/lemon. I've added various sorts of chopped nuts and even some raisins, even though I usually stay away from products that contain a lot of fructose.

A typical recipe would look like this:
50g of peanut butter

25g of coconut oil

8g of Green & Black’s organic cocoa powder

4th of a stalk of vanilla seeds/2g vanilla extract

10g Stevia/15g Xylitol/5g Sucralose


Most of the times I pour the chocolate on top of my fluff and put it in the freezer for 5 minutes, but I’ve also bought moulds to make my own pralines. When you put it in the fridge or the freezer, the coconut oil acts as the cocoa solid and making the chocolate go from saucy to solid. I got to add that if you leave them out in room temperature the chocolate will start to melt quite quickly.

Here are some examples...
