Craving Chocolate?

Craving Chocolate for IN Magazine by

Cacao is naturally rich in antioxidants, magnesium, iron and calcium. This type of chocolate has a positive influence on brain chemistry and is a natural mood-booster. Read more about chocolate and enjoy my recipes in Craving Chocolate online here.


The less processing and refining chocolate undergoes, the more nutrients it retains. Cacao in the forms of powder, nibs and bars offers a wealth of nutrients and is great for baking.

The cacao bean is not sweet. So, for a healthier sweet treat, instead of using sugar to sweeten your chocolate treats, use honey, maple syrup, coconut palm sugar, stevia or even fruit spread.

All of my recipes are gluten- grain-free and are celiac-friendly. Dairy is optional, and I made these truffles with coconut palm sugar.
