If you're looking for a gluten free recipe for a chocolate spread that doesn't contain nuts (without naming names, you know the one we all love - _that_ chocolate hazelnut spread...) then you're in the right place!
This nut free spread makes a fantastic frosting for cakes, especially birthday cakes! Add in a couple of drops of essential oil to createa great chocolate partnership - our favourite is chocolate mint, but orange or rose oil would also work really well.
Sometimes nothing but chocolate will do. Even if you are following a super strict healthy paleo diet, you're going to have a day when you really, really want something chocolatey. Nowadays it's so hard to find chocolate that doesn't contain things like soy, along with a humongous quantity of sugar, and so often you don't know if the nut allergy warning is just a company trying to protect itself or a real warning, so If you make your own you're always going to know what's in it.
Because our recipe uses raw cacao powder and cacao butter you are getting lots of lovely magnesium which is something the vast majority of us are deficient in these days. Pumpkin seeds are also packed with magnesium as well as zinc and a good dose of omega 3 fats. Using only dates and maple syrup to sweeten this chocolate spread means that this is rather a healthy naughty treat, so you still get to wear your halo.
This spread is utterly delicious on our gluten free pancake recipe which you can find here.
