So my wife has been craving some chocolate, so I decided to try and make her something close to her favorites

so I grabbed some supplies

I dumped in 2 cups of unsweetened cocoa powder, 2/3 cup of honey and a teaspoon of sea salt

I melted a cup of coconut oil

and mixed it well

I covered a pan with wax paper and smoothed it all out on the pan

and sprinkled unsweetened coconut and almonds on it

I set the pan outside to harden and after about 40 minutes, it was set

was good!

Now this is not Low-Cal,I did a quick breakdown on MFP but is Paleo friendly

Trader Joe’s – Organic Virgin Coconut Oil, 16 Tbsp, 15mL

Calories 1,920

Hershey’s Cocoa – Natural Unsweetened Powder, 32 tbsp

Calories 320

Honey – Clover, 11 Tablespoon

Calories 660

Let’s Do…® Organic – Unsweetened Organic Coconut Flakes, 3 Tbsp. (15 g)

Calories 110

Natural Raw Sliced Almonds – 1 Tbsp, 2 tbsp

Calories 40

Total 3,050

Price wise it was about 4 dollars total for ingredients

really good, tastes just like a dark chocolate mounds with just a slight after taste which I think is the honey, as long as the wife is happy with them, I’m good!

So my wife has really taken to this side of paleo, she’s doing chocolate banana popsicles, those things are awesome when the need for a snack arise
