I cannot get enough chocolate! I wanted to create a healthy “superfood” chocolate that was dairy-free, gluten-free, with no guilt associated!

Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

Cocoa powder is low in calories and fat and is rich in flavonoids including polyphenols, catechins and flavonols, with potential mood and cardiovascular benefits. Such promises explain our time-tested fascination with it. In fact, ancient Mesoamericans used cacao as both medication and currency. Plus, use leftover cacao powder when you’re feeling chilly to make a soul-warming superfood version of hot chocolate.
