Happy Monday everyone!
I am back from my wonderful trip to Florida. We had a fantastic time visiting my family, and I am feeling so grateful right now. It had been about four years since I last saw my Mom, Dad, and brother. Thank you to everyone who wished us well during our road trip:)
As much as I love to travel, as Dorothy said, "There is no place like home". I was very anxious to see my pets and get back into my happy raw kitchen today!
I was delighted to make another yummy recipe from the amazing Kate Magic. After making Kate's incredible Marching Biscuits I was looking forward to trying this chocolate recipe also shared at the Raw Living site.
The recipe is I Can Go Go Go Too...
There are two delicious layers to this treat. Each layer is brilliant on its own, and combined makes a fabulous and healthy treat.
For half the recipe, I subbed the zest of one orange for the orange oil. I omitted the optional ingredients, and used agave for the sweetener in both layers.
The chocolate layer called for coconut butter (I used Artisana), but was a bit thick, so I added a heaping spoonful of coconut oil(I used Tropical Traditions) to the mixture to loosen it.
I molded them in a brownie bite pan, and topped the chocolate layer with a mix of chopped goji berries, cacao nibs and hemp seed. Half the recipe made 20 bite sized chocolates.
Since Valentine's Day is soon, I added a raw chocolate heart to the lighter layer of several choccies, which was actually the bottom:) These would make a lovely treat for your 'special someone':)
I absolutely love this recipe! I am always amazed that yummy raw treats can be so good for us too!
Huge thanks to the lovely Kate Magic for sharing this fantastic recipe with us! I look forward to trying more of your recipes soon:)
Thanks for stopping by today, and I hope to see you soon:)
