Cocomint Skinny Chocolate (df, sweetener free)

Whoa. That was some GOOD skinny chocolate. So good, I must post the recipe... and perhaps make more to take a picture. We'll see how long it lasts once I do. ;)

If you can't do sweeteners, and also do not thrive on popular low-carb sugar substitutes, I hope this recipe will bless you.

2T coconut oil, melted
1T coconut butter
dash of mint flavor (I use frontier organics)
2T shredded unsweetened coconut
1T unsweetened cocoa powder
1 t maca powder (sneaky supplement-- I use to balance hormones-- feel free to omit)

First, put a plate in the freezer (I often leave one in for when the urge strikes). This prevents the skinny chocolate from sticking to the plate, and helps it set in a flash. 

Melt coconut oil in a metal measuring cup on the stovetop or over a cup of tea. Meanwhile, measure dry ingredients into a small bowl. As soon as coconut oil has mainly liquefied, remove from heat (if a couple little lumps remain, swirl with a fork). Mash in coconut butter until well combined. Add mint flavor and dry ingredients and stir well. 

Pour onto frozen plate, return to freezer and patiently wait two minutes until it magically solidifies.  Enjoy!! Serves one.
