  healthy homemade walnut dark chocolate

This recipe produces  one of the healthiest chocolate treats you will find.  It also tastes better than the commercial stuff you end up buying!  This is one of the few chocolates that I make without any of the other healthy sugars and it is not for everyone.  Only those who like a very dark chocolate will appreciate the flavour.

Ingredients:

4 squares (approx 112 gm) unsweetened baking chocolate
1 Tbsp coconut oil
1 teaspoon liquid light stevia*
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped
1/2 cup sultanas or raisins

Directions:

  1. Combine chocolate and coconut oil in a double boiler or carefully in saucepan.
  2. Heat until all the chocolate and coconut oil is melted.
  3. Add the stevia.
  4. Mix in vanilla extract after removing from heat.
  5. Line an 8 inch square pan or bread tin with parchment paper.
  6. Sprinkle evenly in the pan the walnuts and raisins.
  7. Pour melted chocolate mixture over the raisins and walnuts.
  8. Let cool in refrigerator or freezer.
  9. Once set, cut into squares.
  10. Store in covered container. Can also be stored in refrigerator or freezer, if desired.

    Sounds great and thanks for using Stevia! Will give it a try!

  2. Christina McClure says:

    What about using pure maple syrup instead of stevia?

  3. Stevia is best as it is so sweet without having all the extreme sugar effects. Sorry Christina maple syrup will not work. 1 tsp of maple syrup is not as sweet as 1 tsp of stevia.

  4. Christina McClure says:

    Darn..I’m not very big on stevia. Oh well guess I’ll have to use it anyway.

  5. Zee Kallah says:

    To have chocolate or to not have chocolate. That is the question.

    Sometimes, I almost sympathize with the many who do not want to know.

    How do we know that bakers chocolate is non GMO?

  7. Bryon says:

    Thanks so much for this recipe. I want to try substituting goji berries for the raisins.

  8. Goji berries sounds like a good idea. Let me know how it turns out.

  9. Doris Owen says:

    What about using more of coconut sugar? Also for those who don’t like darker than 65 %, what about semi-sweet chocolate?

  10. Doris, in the recipe above that will not work well. I have given a link to another sweeter recipe. See above as it is now there.

    For Vegan milk chocolate there are recipes in the Healthy Chocolate Project. I spend literally hours testing and retesting to get the best recipes so you can be assured you will get good recipes there.
