My name is Kylie. I LOVE chocolate.
I do not like milky chocolate. It has to be GOOD chocolate. Chocolate is generally sugar-laden yes?
Not this chocolate. Perfect for when you are smack bang in the middle of #nurseyschool and studying your head off. OR when you are driving a million miles to and from Placement for said #nurseyschool, and you need a little ‘pickup”. Or – when you just feel like a non-sugar added sugar hit!
A little while ago, the lovely folks at Well Naturally contacted me to see if I would care to sample their new range, cook up a little something something and share it with my good friends in the blogosphere. Ummm. Let me think about it. Receive chocolate. Cook with it. Eat it. No brainer!
I received a delicious little package in the mail, filled with much goodness.
My heart sang. Immediately!
I was in full study mode at that time, so a few squares of chocolate were exactly what I needed.
Well Naturally (and I quote) “leaves out the undesirable ingredients, so you can enjoy more of the good stuff. because unhealthy treats are so yesterday!”.
No added sugar chocolate bars AND cooking melts – WIN WIN. Sweetened with stevia, there is no impact on blood sugar levels and zero calories. Well done Well Naturally!
Go on – try some! (Look for it in all good supermarkets.)
No arguments from me.
I proceeded to study hard, and indulge in chocolate. Win win. (for those playing along – I have three High Distinctions so far for this semester – woohoo!).
Let’s just say – Dark Chocolate with a hint of peppermint was my favourite, followed very closely by the Acai berry!
I whipped up a little
morning-tea whenever I feel like it, snack for myself, and proceeded to munch through it like crazy. A delicious vaguely paleo chocolate brownie. Full of no added sugars! Oh – and it’ll make you “number two” like you never have before!
- 100g Well Naturally No Sugar Added dark chocolate melts
- 2 cups nuts (I used almonds - you can use a mix!)
- 12 pitted dates
- 1 tbs chia
- ½ cup coconut
- ¼ cup cacao powder
- splash of water (enough to make the mixture 'stick' together)
- Throw everything into the thermomix (or processor - whichever appliance you have)
- Whiz on high speed until the mix comes together (TMX sp9)
- Add water is needed - I usually find water is needed to bring the mix together.
- Press firmly into a slice tin.
- NB - it doesn't make a big thick slice - I don't usually spread it across the whole tin, just enough so that the slice is about ½inch high
- Cool in fridge for 30 mins
- Seive cacao over the top
Speaking of WIN WIN…….
Thanks to Well Naturally, I have TWO packs of chocolate to giveaway. You want one – truly.
