HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE DARK CHOCOLATE –

Print Recipe
HOMEMADE SUGAR FREE DARK CHOCOLATE -
Instructions
  1. Mix the coconut oil into the cocoa powder, 1 Tablespoon at a time. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl periodically to make sure it all gets incorporated.
  2. Stir in the sweetener, vanilla, and salt.
  3. Divide between two lightly greased mini loaf pans or a lightly greased chocolate mold
  4. Allow it to set at room temperature for 30 minutes, then transfer to the fridge to set completely.
  5. Store in the fridge until you're ready to eat it. This gets a little mess if kept at room temperature.
Recipe Notes
  • I highly recommend using granulated stevia which has a finer grain. If you would like to use raw or coconut sugar, you may want to grind it to a finer consistency in a coffee/spice grinder or mini food processor so that your chocolate doesn't end up gritty.
  • You can replace the granulated sweetener with 6-8 drops (or to taste) liquid stevia.
  • Or you can use the 1/4 cup sweetener that the recipe calls for, plus 1-3 drops liquid stevia (to taste), for slightly sweeter chocolate. 
  • You can replace the coconut oil with cacao butter (1/4 cup or about 1.6 ounces by weight) if you prefer, or cannot eat coconut. Either way, the chocolate needs to stay refrigerated as it will be very soft at room temperature.
  • Yield: 2x6” bars or about 9-10 mini chocolate bites

  1. Preheat Outside Grill on Medium High setting when you start your prep.
  2. Pat tuna steaks with paper towels to remove excess moisture then place in a shallow dish.
  3. Mix all spices with oil and lemon juice in a small bowl with a fork or wisk. Allow to rest for at least 5 minutes to blend together.
  4. Brush mixture on both sides of Tuna steaks and allow steaks to rest for another 5 minutes.
  5. Grill steaks on hot grill 2-5 minutes on each side to attain desired doneness. For well done there should still be some pinkness to the center. Most prefer barely warm red centers. Be Brave, you will be surprised at the flavorful moistness and un-fishyness of this Tuna!
  6. Overcooking to a uniform color would be a sad waste of a great dish!
