5 Ingredient Homemade Vegan Chocolate Bars

March 08, 2022 2 min read

With just 5 simple ingredients! It is easy to make and doesn’t contain anything funky. Perfect for kids and adults alike!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1/2 cup + 1 tablespoon raw cacao butter
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup (or honey, agave syrup and the alike works!)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt (we LOVE pink Himalayan salts)
  • 1/2 cup cacao powder

Optional add-ins, such as

    • 1/4 roasted nuts (i.e. macadamia, hazelnut, almonds) 
    • Cacao nibs
    • Freeze-dried fruit or crystallised ginger
    • Peanut butter

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Prepare your chocolate molds (i.e. silicone ice trays!) or a small baking tray. You can also use a baking sheet or a pan of choice if you do not mind the chocolate in a different shape. Simply line a baking sheet (or dish) of choice with parchment paper. It is ideal for the dish to be very narrow as it will result in a better thickness. Set aside.
  2. Prepare a double boiler: Bring a small pot of water to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and place either a fitted glass (or ceramic) bowl or another smaller pot over the water. The key here is to make sure that water does not get into the bowl or pot. Add the cacao butter and allow it to slowly melt, mixing often. Once the cacao butter has melted remove the upper bowl or pot and set it onto a pot holder on the counter.
  3. Whisk in the maple syrup, vanilla extract and salt until smooth. Using a fine mesh strainer, sift in the cacao powder. Whisk again until uniform and smooth.
  4. Pour the melted chocolate into the molds or the lined baking tray. Smooth it out with a spatula and sprinkle any additional ingredients on top. We added roasted macadamia nuts to ours.
  5. Pop the molds or tray mixture into the refrigerator or freezer for about 10-15 minutes to set. Dig in!

It isn’t Easter without hot cross buns. And now if you're GF, DF you can enjoy these too! 

Gluten-free, dairy-free and refined-sugar free! We used brown rice flour and coconut sugar to keep these buns low GI and as wholesome as possible. Hot Cross Buns are our next favourite thing about Easter! I love all kinds, but the choc-chip variety are my favourite.

The chai adds subtle warmth and spice, and when smeared with some wholesome butter or equivalent, it will be hard to stop at one!
