Healthy Chocolate Recipes on TV

I am a chocoholic so you can imagine how happy I was when I learned that chocolate can actually be healthy! No, I’m not talking about the regular chocolate bars you find at the corner store, and I’m not even talking about dark chocolate. I’m talking about raw cacao!

During my segment on Breakfast Television, I explain the health benefits of raw cacao. I also show you how to make decadent Raw Black Forest Brownies my cookbook Healthy Dairy Free Desserts and talk about four other healthy chocolate recipes. The segment originally aired on March 31, 2017.

Health Benefits of Chocolate

Yes, chocolate can actually be healthy when you enjoy it in raw cacao form and when you use it in recipes that don’t contain processed ingredients. Health benefits include:

  • High in magnesium which is perfect for sore muscles, relaxation, and strong bones
  • Contains lots and lots of antioxidants that fight ageing and help prevent cancer
  • Makes you feel happy because it contains phenylethylamine (PEA)

These are like one bite brownies with a kick of spice! The great thing about this healthy chocolate recipe is that the measurements don’t have to be exact, so don’t worry about fussing over whether you have added too much chocolate or not enough coconut oil.

Homemade Chocolate Bar

Making your own chocolate bar is really easy and you can control what kind of sugar you use! The main ingredient in this recipe is raw cacao butter which is the oil or fat that is extracted from the cacao bean over low heat. It is a source of healthy fats and antioxidants that help improve mood, memory and support the immune system.
