5 from 9 reviews

This tasty Paleo Dark Chocolate is easy to make, far less expensive than buying organic chocolate from the store, and satisfies any chocolate craving!


  • ½ cup coconut oil
  • ⅔ cup raw cacao powder
  • 34 Tbsp maple syrup, more or less to your taste
  • ½ Tbsp vanilla extract


  1. Melt the coconut oil over low heat.
  2. While the coconut oil is melting, line a baking sheet with parchment paper; set aside.
  3. Add the cacao, maple syrup, and vanilla extract to the coconut oil and stir well, whisking to remove any lumps from the cacao. Remove from the heat and pour onto the parchment paper-lined baking sheet. Smooth to about 1/4″ thick, then refrigerate until quite firm (1-2 hours.)
  4. Cut into 2″ bars.
