Raw Chocolate Lavender Love Bars [Recipe]

Raw Chocolate Lavender Love Bars [Recipe]

Mmm, yes! It’s time for another mouthwatering raw chocolate recipe!

This time I give you one of my absolute favorite creations, which will both surprise and delight you…

The raw chocolate is an activating afrodisiac, whereas the Lavender Essential Oil acts as a soothing, calming and harmonising secret agent.

Kind of like being high and cosy on MDMA, but more healthy. ;)

 

Raw Chocolate Lavender Love Bars…

Les ingrédients…
  • Raw cacao powder
  • Raw cacao butter
  • Coconut oil
  • Fine organic coconut blossom sugar
  • Young Living Lavender Essential Oil (1-2 drops should be enough!)
  • Organic vanilla powder
  • A hint of sea salt, or better yet: Himalayan rock salt

Tip: I buy most of my chocolate ingredients either on iHerb.com or at Ekoplaza here in the Netherlands. :)

Amounts all depend on how much you want to make.

Coconut oil and cacao butter should be in about equal proportions, and then simply add cacao powder, coconut sugar, lavender essential oil & salt until you’ve reached a sweetness and darkness that make your knees weak.

Instructions:

Melt cacao butter au bain-marie (= pour hot water into a big bowl, and place cacao butter in a small bowl, inside the big bowl).

It melts more quickly if you’ve first chopped the cacao butter into small pieces, or grated it into finer shavings.

Stir every few minutes. Make sure it doesn’t get too hot, so it stays raw.

Chocolate au bain-marie

Once the cacao butter has melted, add coconut oil and stir until that’s melted too (if it isn’t already).

Stir in cacao powder and coconut sugar to desired flavor pleasure. Add a pinch of vanilla powder, a tiny bit of salt and a drop of Young Living Lavender Essential Oil.

Taste. Add more of anything if needed.

Then pour into your favorite chocolate moulds. Hearts, cubes, bars or buddha shaped moulds if you have!

Then slip it back into the fridge while you take a dance break, do some push ups, write a love letter or watch this video

Take it out, pop the chocolates onto a plate… and ENJOY!

FAQ – helpful hints & tips:

I buy most of my chocolate ingredients either on iHerb.com or at Ekoplaza here in the Netherlands. :)

– Be generous with the cacao powder (nothing worse than chocolate mousse that doesn’t taste like chocolate!)

– How much lavender oil? Start with just one drop. It’s quite intense.

– Important: ONLY use Young Living Lavender Essential Oil, which as far as I know is the only one you can actually eat. It’s raw, organic, therapeutic grade, and won’t harm you in any way as long as it’s diluted in chocolate, tea, almond milk or similar. (On it’s own it’ll be too strong.)

– You can also swap the lavender oil for peppermint essential oil for delicious minty chocolate bars.

– Real vanilla powder should be dark brown in color. (When you buy something called vanillin or “natural vanilla flavor” it’s most likely made either synthetically or “naturally derived” from cow dung – yuck!)
Go for the real deal, mi amore.

– Coconut oil becomes liquid at 24/25 degrees celsius. So unless your apartment/beach house/raw food kitchen is that warm: put it in a bowl on the heater, or melt au bain-marie: coconut oil in a small bowl, inside a bigger bowl with warm water. Make sure it’s below 47 degrees to keep it raw.

– The top of the fridge is usually coldest, and will harden the coconut oil and cacao butter the fastest.

– Bonus bonus points if you get together with friends or a lover and feed each other…[divider–padding]

It helps to have friends around for tasting! :)

Q: Is this really healthy? Exactly what’s so good about it?

A: Well, I’m glad you asked. Let’s start with the raw cacao:

The botanical name for the cacao tree is theobroma cacao – which means “food of the gods” in Greek.

Cacao powder improves heart health, lowers blood pressure and reduces LDL (“bad”) cholesterol.

Raw cacao is super high in antioxidants, magnesium and iron and also contains compounds that act as stimulants believed to boost serotonin and endorphin levels in the brain that gives you a pleasurable sensation similar to the “runner’s high” people get after exercise.

Raw cacao also contains tryptophan and phenylethylamine, which are responsible for causing feelings of happiness and sexual arousal.

Coconut oil melts on your tongue and is full of good anti-inflammatory mono-unsaturated fats that…

… Reduce the risk of heart disease, some cancers, diabetes and high cholesterol

… Prevent and assist with both rheumatoid and osteo-arthritis

… Help to burn fat and reduce weight

… Help prevent vaginal dryness (yes, really)

… Are high in vitamins A, C, E, K and B6, fiber, magnesium, potassium, riboflavin, niacin, folate and pantothenic acid

Coconut sugar has a low glycaemic index and won’t cause any blood-sugar spikes. Slow = nice.

Lavender Essential Oil is calming, soothing, improves sleep and has even been shown to counteract depression.

 

 

And now… over to YOU.

And if you want to spread the happy gospel that healthy & OMG delicious! really can dance hand-in-hand in a rose-colored sunset – please share the link for this recipe on facebook, twitter and wherever you’re hanging out!

I wish you a very tasty weekend…

With love,

    My coder is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.

    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress on a number of websites
    for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
    I have heard great things about blogengine.net.
    Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
    Any help would be really appreciated!
