Who doesn’t love chocolate? It’s the one treat that doesn’t seem all that bad since pure chocolate is good for you. But is the chocolate bars or chocolate treats you find at the check out counter have any of the good benefits that pure chocolate offers? Not really! Full of high fructose corn syrup and GMO’s it’s not really what you would describe as a healthy option. But what options do we have when we want a little chocolate in our life but don’t want those GMO’s getting in the way? I have made a list of a few organic GMO free chocolate bars you might enjoy! But First here is a super easy recipe to make GMO free chocolate cups and there is no cooking required! Plus if you do have kids they will love helping you make these. These are chocolates you don’t have to feel guilty about.
Non GMO Chocolate Peanut (or Sunflower) Butter Cups:
-1/2 cup Coconut oil
-1/2 cup Cacao powder
-1/4 100% Pure Maple Syrup
(no fake stuff as it is full of GMO’s!)
– *optional : a pinch of cayenne pepper to give it some kick
Mix all ingredients in a bowl, once all smooth place in a small cupcake wrappers filled half way up. Place in freezer for at least half an hour and enjoy! Just take out the ones you will be eating and keep the rest in the freezer as they melt if the temperature is high! So easy and kids love to make them! *It is easier if the coconut oil and the nut butters are at room temperature before mixing.
If you are not into cooking then here is a few options to buy non gmo chocolate treats in bulk (since it is cheaper that way)
