Gluten Free for your Chocolate Craving

I made these for a friend with Celiac, using a recipe another friend shared (the photo is hers as I left my camera at work) and they were a hit! They are obviously not low far - but they are low carb and rich enough you just need a little bite to satisfy your chocolate/dessert craving.

Chocolate Raspberry Dessert Bars (gluten free, no flour or white sugar)
3/4 cup coconut oil, melted;
1/2 cup coconut butter (comes in a mayonnaise style jar, found at most health food stores or online)
1/2 cup maple syrup or raw honey;
1/2 cup dark cocoa powder;
1/2 cup fresh raspberries;
1/4 cup dark chocolate, thinly chopped;
1/4 cup roasted almonds, chopped;

Preparation

Combine the coconut oil and butter, maple syrup, and cocoa powder over a double boiler, and whisk until blended and smooth.

Add in the dark chocolate bits, raspberries, and chopped almonds, gently stirring.

Line a 9×9 or 8 x 8 square baking pan with parchment paper and pour the chocolate in evenly.

Place in the freezer and freeze 15 to 20 minutes.

Slice while the mixture is still cold, and serve at room temperature. Store in refrigerator.

Thanks for visiting. Having been fortunate enough not to have to diet as a young woman - hitting middle age to find my Metabolism moved to Aruba and didn't even send a postcard was a rude awakening. Thanks for sharing the fun and the pain of getting back in shape. Note: If you are a stranger and include a link in your comment - it will not be posted, to ensure no SPAM or viruses are shared.
