Chocolate Spread (healthy option!) Carly Flynn / Wednesday, February 11, 2015 / Categories: Kitchen For the most part, my kids are pretty good when it comes to understanding treats, and the amount of sugar they're allowed. But sometimes I feel like a bit of a mean mum banging on about it, and that forces me to look for alternatives. This Dr Libby recipe is a great substitute for a chocolate spread - it's got no refined sugar in and tastes good too. Chocolate Spread Ingredients 1/3 cup cacao powder 1/2 cup maple syrup 4 tablespoons coconut oil Pinch of salt Method 1. Combine all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend for 10 seconds or until just combined. Makes 1 ½ cups 5 minutes Nutritional Information This is a wonderfully versatile spread to have ready to go in the fridge. Chocolate cravings needn’t be satisfied with processed confectionary when you have a dairy and refined sugar-free, nutrient dense option on hand. The fat content of this spread will leave you feeling satisfied, so try a tablespoon of this spread mid-afternoon drizzled over a banana, nuts and seeds or straight off the spoon. A higher fat snack mid-afternoon can be an effective strategy to help you choose a smaller serving come dinnertime.
