- 57g coconut oil
- 2 tablespoons of maple syrup
- 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla extract
- 125g 80Noir Ultra dark chocolate
- 30g Dutch cocoa powder
- 228g Gluten free wholegrain puffed rice cereal (I use Kallo)
- Flakey sea salt to sprinkle (optional)
- Prepare a 9x13" pan with non-stick spray and parchment paper.In a large pot, add the coconut oil, dark chocolate, and the cocoa powder.
- Stir constantly until everything is melted together and well combined. Add the maple syrup and vanilla extract.
- Be careful not to let the chocolate sit in the bottom of the pan as it could burn.
- Add the crispy rice cereal and quickly stir until all the cereal is well-coated with the chocolate rice krispy mixture.
- Spoon the mixture into the prepared pan and gently press down until you have an even layer. Don't press too firmly as this can make the treats hard. Allow the treats to set for 15 minutes to cleanly slice OR enjoy them right away.
- If you're slicing into bars, pull the set mixture up and out of the pan. Slice into 15 squares.
- Top with flakey sea salt and enjoy!
- Store leftover in an airtight container at room temperature.
1. Q: What are the benefits of using dark chocolate in coeliac friendly recipes?
A: Dark chocolate is a great option for coeliac friendly recipes because it is naturally gluten-free and contains antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals that promote overall health. When choosing dark chocolate, make sure it has a high cocoa content to ensure fewer additives and the absence of gluten-containing ingredients. We obviously recommend 80Noir Ultra
2. Q: How do I ensure that my dark chocolate is indeed coeliac friendly?
A: To make sure your dark chocolate is coeliac friendly, carefully read the ingredient list on the packaging. Avoid any products that have added wheat products or other gluten-containing ingredients. It is also essential to look for potential cross-contamination warnings, such as "may contain traces of gluten" or "processed in a facility that also processes wheat." - 80Noir Ultra is Gluten Free.
3. Q: Can I replace milk chocolate with dark chocolate in coeliac friendly recipes?
A: Yes, you can substitute milk chocolate with dark chocolate in most recipes by adjusting the sugar content accordingly. (I personally keep the sugar content the same as I prefer it) Dark chocolate tends to have a higher cocoa content and less sugar than milk chocolate, so you might need to add extra sugar or sweetener to achieve the desired taste. Its all personal preference.
4. Q: What type of dark chocolates should I use in coeliac friendly recipes?
A: When selecting dark chocolates for your recipes, choose those with a high cocoa percentage (70% or more) for maximum health benefits and flavor intensity. Besides checking for gluten-free labels on the packaging, also opt for products with minimal additional ingredients to ensure their coeliac friendliness. 80Noir Ultra is perfect for this.
5. Q: Can you give examples of coeliac friendly dessert recipes that involve dark chocolate?
A: Some delicious examples of coeliac friendly dessert recipes using dark chocolate include flourless chocolate cake, dark chocolate almond bark, gluten-free brownies, no-bake chocolate oat cookies, and crunchy quinoa-dark chocolate clusters. These options highlight the versatility of dark chocolate while catering to gluten-free dietary needs. We will be showing these in the next couple of weeks so keep a weather eye out.
