I’m always on the lookout for yummy and healthy snacks, so when Nicole from Modern Day Hippie sent me some raw, organic and gluten free snack mixes, I couldn’t wait to try them out.
Being a chocolate lover, I decided to give the Chocolate Seedstation a go first. Organic, raw, gluten AND guilt free chocolate – happy days!
Inside the pack is a mix of pepitas, sunflower kernels, cacao, cacao butter, chia seeds, agave, coconut oil, desiccated coconut and vanilla. The coconut oil with vanilla and agave and cacao butter are in separate packets.
The first step is to blend the dry seed mix into a fine powder. I left mine with a bit of texture through it as I love my chocolate with a bit of crunch. (I don’t have a blender, so used my bamix instead which was a teeny bit messy).
The next step is to melt the cacao butter buttons. To keep the cacao butter ‘raw’, place the buttons into a small bowl. Pour a small amount of boiling water into a larger bowl, then gently immerse the smaller bowl containing the buttons into it, stirring occasionally.
Once the cacao buttons have melted (it takes a few minutes), pour it into the dry mixture and combine. I added a tablespoon of honey as I like my chocolate to be quite sweet.
Then pour the combined mixture into a 18 x 28cm baking tray lined with baking paper, and pop it in the freezer for one hour.
Once it has set, all you have to do is slice the chocolate into bite size pieces (try not to eat too much along the way!) and place the chocolate into a jar or bowl. Too easy!
The end result is truly delicious chocolate, perfect for any health conscious person who loves to indulge their sweet tooth. It’s also ideal for anyone on a gluten free diet.
I used two empty Glasshouse candle jars to store my organic Modern Hippie Seed station chocolate. These are a perfect healthy snack and would even make a lovely gift for a friend.
It’s incredible how chocolate that’s made without any sugar or dairy products can taste so good. Now I can indulge in chocolate as much as I like without feeling guilty!
Modern Day Hippie also has Choc Cherry Powerballs, Fruit and Nut Fantasy, Nut-a-licious and Sweet and Simple snack mixes which are super healthy and delicious.
