Chocoholics Spread

Delicious and way more healthier than store-bought chocolate spread. This spread can be eaten by itself! It's that good, kids will love it.

Ingredients

  • Pure cocoa powder (not the sweetened variety)
  • Pure organic maple syrup
  • Crunchy oat bran (optional)
  • Tahini (optional)
  • Peanut butter (optional)

Instructions

  1. Mix cocoa powder with maple syrup, approximately 3 teaspoons cocoa to 2 dessertspoons (4 teaspoons) maple syrup.

Notes

The calories are much lower than chocolate as there is no added fat, nor are there any other, possibly addictive or harmful, ingredients.

This paste can be eaten just as it is, or mixed with crunchy oat bran or other dry unsweetened cereal.

To make it richer, mix in some tahini or peanut butter (with or without the oat bran or cereal). This will put the calories up a bit, but as tahini has a strong flavour, you won't need much.

You can spread it onto rice cakes, or some other low calorie crispbread, or just eat it with a spoon!
