The new best chocolate combo. Rich cocoa powder blended with hemp seeds. The perfect spread, day or night, that’s gluten-free, vegan, paleo, and sugar-free. Decadence at its healthiest and tastiest!
Have you ever tasted something so good that it really made you pause, the world literally stops for a moment? I have. Not even joking, some foods can just be that good. It’s those moments that you start to believe taste is the most important of the 5 senses. But then you snap back to reality and realize if you didn’t have smell then taste would be pointless (they work together you know!). Like when you’re sick and your nose is stuffed up. You can’t taste a thing and it’s just terrible! Plus, I always seem to be extra hungry if I have a cold (need the energy?), so it can really cause problems. Anyway, back to the recipe!
February’s Theme: Favorite Chocolate Matches – Does your chocolate need a friend? This month’s posting will be after Valentine’s Day, so you may have a bit of extra chocolate around. What’s your favorite chocolate match? Be it traditional peanut butter or something more exotic like cayenne + chocolate. Show us your favorite healthy chocolate combo recipe.
Not joking, I almost ate this whole recipe in one sitting. It’s silly to even call a recipe since it’s only 3 ingredients, but my o my, this stuff is crack! I love hemp seeds and obviously I
live for adore chocolate. I go through containers of unsweetened cocoa powder like it’s my job! And it has to be Hershey’s Unsweetened Cocoa Powder. Nothing fancy or expensive, just this good old intense, bitter cocoa. This may just be my new favorite nut seed butter. Spread this THICK on some apple slices and you’ll be in heaven. That moment when the world stops will happen! It tastes so naughty, but there is nothing “bad” about it!
Chocolate Hemp Seed Butter
Ingredients: (makes enough to fill an 8oz jar)
+ 2 Cups Raw Hemp Hearts
+ 3 TB Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
+ 10 Drops Chocolate Stevia
+ 1 TB Water
+ In a high-powered blender (or food processor), combine the hemp hearts, cocoa powder, and stevia. Pulse and blend until you get a butter consistency. Add a tablespoon of water if you need to get things a little more combined and moving. Blend it all up well and store in a jar, in the fridge, for however long it lasts <—– not long!
Hemp seed butter is so good! It’s this crazy “nutty” perfect taste that just goes so well with the cocoa! I am so in love with this stuff! I really wish I had some now! By the way, this isn’t a very “sweet” spread. You can add more or less sweetener depending on what you like! I kept the integrity of the unsweetened cocoa powder since I love it so much!
So tell me:
+ Are you one of those “Nutella people”? I’ve never had it. I love hazelnuts and chocolate though, so I’ll have to make some vegan some time!
+ What’s your favorite chocolate flavor combo? Really, chocolate on everything. I don’t care, I will eat it if it has chocolate 😉
