This chocolate sauce is delicious and perfect for pancakes, mixing with steaming hot nut milks for a gorgeous hot chocolate or for glazing brownies. It’s quick and easy to whip up, it’s rich, deep in flavour and one way to enjoy beautiful chocolate without breaking your healthy habits. I love indulging in this sauce on a Saturday morning over my protein pancakes before I go off to ballet or in the afternoon after a busy day in cup of hot chocolate
Makes one small batch
1/4 cup of warm water
1/4 cup of coconut sugar
1tbsp coconut oil
1tbsp cacao powder
In a small pan, on the lowest heat melt the sugar in the water.
Once the sugar has melted, add the coconut oil, cacao and mix thoroughly.
Raise the heat, bring the mixture to a boil quickly and then lower to the original heat immediately, the sauce will thicken up slightly in the next minute. Once it does, take it off the heat and it is ready to be used.
Top Tip: You can elevate it by adding vanilla, cinnamon, Himalayan pink salt or cayenne pepper.
