  • 8 tablespoons coconut oil (organic palm oil works well too, as well as butter)

  • 6 tablespoons cocoa powder (or carob)
  • 9 teaspoons honey (see Recipe Notes)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla


  • Melt coconut oil and almond butter over a simmer. Continuously stir until it slightly thickens, then remove from heat. Stir in the liquid sweetener and vanilla. 
  • Stir in cocoa or carob, sifting first for better blending results.
  • Stir in powdered sweetener, continuing to stir until the mixture slightly thickens.
  • Add liquid sweetener and vanilla.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Pour the mixture into an 8x8 pan and place in fridge or freezer to harden.


Variation: Add ½ cup shredded coconut or chopped nuts or seeds after removing from heat.
