Raw Cacao Chocolates
As you may know, I absolutely love Cacao - it has some amazing health benefits.
Not to be confused with cocoa, cacao is made by cold-pressing un-roasted cacao beans. The process keeps the living enzymes in the cacao and removes the fat (cacao butter – also a great ingredient for cooking!).
Cocoa looks the same, but it’s not. Cocoa powder is raw cacao that’s been roasted at high temperatures. Roasting changes the molecular structure of the cacao bean, lowering the overall nutritional value.
Tip! Try adding a layer of almond butter to the bottom of your moulds for added protein!
Let me know how you get on with your versions! Send me photos if you can.
