The trick to anything clean eating that involves chocolate is to buy the right chocolate. Not all chocolate is created equal. Most store bought chocolate actually contains such a small amount of cacao that I am surprised they can even get away with calling it chocolate.
Here is a great video on a few of the benefits (this is not an ad, just one we find informative)
You may have heard that dark chocolate provides antioxidants, among other positive health benefits. This is true if you consume the right chocolate. The higher the % of cacao, the better. Start with at the bare minimum 60%. 80% is best. The chocolate we use here (look at labels in the store!!) has only cocoa butter and raw cane sugar. Your chocolate should not have more than 3-4 natural ingredients.
For recipes such as these no bake cookies cutting the bitterness of the chocolate is easy!
It is as simple as adding some almond milk and honey. Here is how:
