As Easter looms over your head, promises of chocolate and Cadbury mini-eggs float around you like snowflakes endlessly drifting down from the pale white sky.  If you're going to inevitably indulge, know that there are alternatives! Here's a 2-ingredient vegan chocolate recipe that isn't an assault on your taste buds. You can make it again (and again) without too much of a hassle on your part. You can make it for others or keep it as a tiny and tasty little secret to yourself and your tastebuds. Incorporate it into your favourite recipes that call for dark chocolate to impart a much bolder flavour. While it may not turn out to be the mini-eggs you dream and dream about, this 2-ingredient vegan chocolate recipe by PumpUp member @heybeau makes it possible for you satisfy your chocolate craving again and again.

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of melted coconut oil
  • 2 tablespoons of cacao powder

Optional

  • Maple syrup or agave nectar, to taste
  • Chocolate protein powder

Mix coconut oil and cacao powder together and add sweetener and/or the protein powder if desired. Refrigerate for 15 minutes and enjoy! Keep mixture cool for as long as it exists in your household. If you wish to increase the portion size of the recipe, do so by mixing the coconut oil and cacao powder in a 1:1 ratio.
