When you eat a clean diet of whole, gluten-free foods, there are still times you are going to feel like indulging. And when you do indulge, you want to enjoy every single bite. My personal belief is that including “treats” you love in moderation and using the highest quality ingredients makes a fertility diet (and beyond) sustainable and pleasurable. Diet and lifestyle are meant to enhance your wellbeing and feeling restricted is counterproductive. Note: Even chocolate has healing benefits!
I found this recipe in the February/March 2015 issue of allrecipes and you can see the recipe here on all recipes.com. When I made it I forgot to put the parchment paper in the pan and it made it harder to get it out of the pan. It is beyond delicious and we enjoyed it with a cup of organic fertility tea— the minty taste was a lovely compliment to the chocolate.
Here’s what you will need:
1/2 cup of organic unsweetened cocoa powder
4 ounces of organic dark chocolate chips
1/2 cup of organic butter
3/4 cups of organic white sugar (I like the wholesome sweetener brand)
3 farm fresh, organic eggs
1 teaspoon of organic vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 8 inch pan, add parchment paper and grease again. Melt butter and chocolate chips in a double boiler. Add all other ingredients. Pour in pan. Bake approximately 40 minutes and let cool 10 minutes before placing on cooling rack. Cool 45 minutes before serving.
