Homemade Paleo Chocolate Recipe (gluten-free, low-carb)



You may have gathered that 1) I’m a chocolate freak, and 2) I’m not at all ashamed of it. Chocolate rocks.

When you follow my The Wild Diet, I promise chocolate for dessert. And that’s no lie. If you’re eating quality stuff, it actually packs a nutritious – and extremely satisfying – punch.

Many Americans are accustomed to fake chocolate. These boring, stale frankensweets are NOT chocolate. You can find quality, high-cacao chocolate in some stores (if you look hard enough), but Alyson and I decided to whip up some on our own (thanks Alyson, these blobs of chocolatey goodness made my day).  And making chocolate at home is far easier and more delicious than you might expect.

Basically, if you want to make chocolate, just combine five ingredients (or more if you’re jazzing up your chocolate) and throw them in the fridge. Deliciousness ensues.

Here are three paleo chocolate recipes to make any bad day a good one.

  1. Just wondering if there is a reason why you use coconut oil over cacao butter as the fat in the chocolate – is it hard to source where you are, or too expensive or did you choose CNO for health benefits/flavor or another reason? Just curious. I’m keen to get some paleo chocolates ready in time for Easter.
