Special Notes

  • This recipe makes about 10 bites- double if you want more!
  • Can use 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon and 1/4 teaspoon ginger if you do not have pumpkin spice.
  • You can try to use almond butter or another nut butter instead of coconut butter, but I prefer the coconut butter.

Dr Jockers Comments:

This is a really fun and tasty chocolate recipe that your family will go crazy for.  It is full of healthy ingredients that provide good fats and anti-oxidants for the body.

Coconut butter is a combination of full fat coconut milk and the coconut flour fiber.  It is very thick, but when heated it becomes gooey and can be manipulated into various shapes and mixed into dishes.  The fats in the coconut butter are great for improving metabolism and helping us to burn fat.  The fiber within it is great for our microbiome and supporting healthy bacteria and good bowel habits.

I love the combination of raw chocolate and coconut fats as it is a great fuel for improving blood supply throughout the body and especially to the brain.  Chocolate is known to stimulate dopamine to improve energy and focus.  I personally, will only use chocolate during the day as a performance enhancement agent.  At night, it can be too stimulating and disrupt good sleep.  Take this into consideration when making this recipe.

If you like things very sweet, use the higher number of stevia drops in the instructions.  If you like less sweetness than use the lower number.  Over time you will find the right amount for you.

  1. As I grew up , there was a saying “You got to eat a peck of dirt before you die!! ” I am constantly amazed at what our grandparents/forefathers did for health so many years ago.
