Do you find yourself going back for more when you get started on the chocolate even homemade raw dark chololate?

I’ll sometimes but not with these creamy cacao bites!

These cacao treats contain gelatine and healthy fats that’ll make you feel well nourish and satisfied after only one or two of these bites ­čśâ

INGREDIENTS

4 tbsp Grass fed beef gelatine
┬Ż cup Water
2 cups Coconut cream (or 400ml can)
1/3 cup Coconut oil
2 tbsp Honey or rice syrup
┬Ż cup Raw cacao powder
3-5 drops Peppermint or wild orange essential oil (optional)
1 tsp Vanilla bean powder
Large pinch of sea salt

 

DIRECTIONS

Saucepan

In a small bowl, stir the beef gelatine into the cold water.  Set it aside to let the gelatin bloom for 3-5 minutes.

Add the coconut cream, coconut oil and sea salt to a medium saucepan. Place it over low heat and stir until the mixture is smooth.  Turn the heat off and add the bloomed gelatine and continue stirring until the gelatine is dissolved. Then add sweetener, cacao powder, vanilla bean powder and peppermint essential oil and stir until combined.

Take the pan off of the heat and pour the mix into silicone molds or a glass baking dish. Refrigerate the gummies until solid, about 1-2 hours for moulds or 3+ hours for a glass dish. Store the gummies in the refrigerator for up to a week.

Thermomix

In a small bowl, stir the beef gelatine into the boiling hot water until mixed.

Set the Thermomix to 50C for 5 minutes at speed 4. Add the coconut cream, coconut oil, sea salt, sweetener and vanilla bean powder and spin until combined. Then add the dissolved gelatine mix to the Thermomix bowl and spin at speed 8 for another 5 minutes. The last 1 minute add the cacao powder and essential oil until desired flavour.
