Thank you to our friend, Sherrie from The Wellness Seed for this fabulous recipe and insight below:
Why raw? A food is considered raw when it hasn’t been heated past 45 degrees Celsius. This keeps all the nutrients in. High temperature cooking will destroy many of foods nutrients.
Raw cacao powder is rich in antioxidants, magnesium and iron. If the chocolate you consume is raw, it can become part of a healthy, nutritious diet. Of course, if the sweetener you use is a sugar such as honey, maple syrup or brown rice syrup, these are still rich in either fructose or glucose (or both), so the chocolate must still be eaten in moderation. But, it’s Easter! So, enjoy this delicious treat.
