Healthy Chocolate Spread

Here’s lookin’ at you, kid!

My “All Dressed Apples” recipe was really well received, so I couldn’t leave this option out for all the chocolate lovers out there.

When you are looking for a quick chocolate fix, this is an option that will serve up a satisfying healthy snack.

The Chocolate Spread

1 tbsp almond butter (see nut free options below)

1 tbsp maple syrup

1/2 tbsp raw cacao powder

Mix the three ingredients together until creamy.  This makes enough for 1 chopped apple.  Dip the apples in  or use as a spread.  To make a school friendly version, use sunflower butter, tahini or “Wow”  butter.  Option to top the spread with gluten free, dairy free chocolate chips, goji berries, shredded coconut, hemp hearts and/or chia seeds.
