This yummy Sugar-Free Chocolate Bites recipe has heart health benefits. Plus, it only requires four ingredients, meaning you can always have a batch on hand when you just gotta have chocolate.
1/4 cup coconut oil
1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
3 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1/2 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
optional toppings: chopped nuts (toasted if desired), chopped pretzels, dried fruit, sea salt, peanut butter, almond butter…
On a plate, set out 16 mini baking cups. (Or you could use a candy mold, silicone mini muffin pan, or 8×8 dish lined with foil.)
In a small saucepan over low heat, melt the coconut oil, then remove from heat and whisk in the cocoa powder, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Stir until smooth.
Carefully add a little chocolate to each of the baking cups. If desired, add toppings. Place in the freezer for about 15 minutes. Keep it stored in the fridge or freezer.
