Delicious Maca Chocolate Recipe

When you get the blend of chocolate just right, then that melting bite transports you to other realms of consciousness.

Its culinary alchemy has the power to make being in this rather chaotic world, oh so much more divine. And let’s face it, we all need some of that every now and again!

This is a particularly special recipe. Not only does it embrace the superior nutritional profile of raw cacao, it also benefits from the incredible health benefits of maca. Maca is a superior plant-food that grown at very high elevations in the Peruvian Andes. It is a powerful adaptogen, which means that it helps us to ‘normalise’ during stressful situations. Maca helps our vitality, balances hormones and supports us during anxiety and depression. In fact it has a catalogue of benefits.

  • 50g raw cacao butter

  • Dissolve the coconut sugar and vanilla extract along with the cacao butter.
  • Mix in the cacao powder, maca powder and raisins once the contents of the bowl have melted.

  • These store in either the fridge or freezer.

      I love maca with chocolate! These are so gorgeous. By the way, I bought your book for my mum and she (and I) LOVE it! She’s a vegetarian who is looking to go vegan but needs a little nudge. As she’s such a spiritual person (especially into her angels) I thought this would be the best way to help her along and I think it’s really helpful. Hugs x

      • Delighted to know you are a maca fan too Aimee. I find that the raisins in this really balance out the maca.
        It warms my heart to know your Mum and you enjoy my Angelicious book… it’s the perfect recipe book for anyone who connects with Angels!
        Love x

      Thank you for the great idea. My son is diabetic and I was wondering if you think I could substitute Monk Fruit for the coconut sugar? Thank you in advance
