OK, so who out there is a a chocolate fiend? I know I am! From candies to cakes, I am a chocolate person through and through. In fact, I often feel if dessert doesn’t somehow include chocolate, then it doesn’t truly count. Believe it or not, one of my all time favorite sweets is just a good bar of chocolate. Portable, handheld, and rich, what’s not to love? It keeps me sane and makes me happy, and I’m not lying when I say I have a piece of chocolate every single day. I’ve spent tons of money on fancy bars with this flavor or that flavor, and I’ve even accepted the added sugar, but after approaching chocolate like the true Bold Baker I am, I’ve created a recipe for Vegan Sugar Free Chocolate Bars! My sugar free chocolate is a dark chocolate bar with all the good stuff and none of the bad, so you’ll feel great about giving in to your chocolate desires. How to Make Sugar Free Chocolate Bars My Vegan Sugar Free Chocolate Bar recipe is the gift that keeps on giving, in my opinion. Not only is there no sugar and no dairy, but there are only 3 ingredients in this recipe: Good quality cocoa powder, coconut oil, and sugar-free maple syrup. Making the bar itself is as easy as mixing these things together, then spreading them thinly over a lined tray or into chocolate bar molds. Both of these methods work really well. After the chocolate sets in the freezer for just 30 minutes, you’ll have yourself a homemade, sugar free, dark chocolate bar — with no processed ingredients whatsoever. What’s the Best Kind of Cocoa Powder? Since the main ingredient in my Vegan Sugar Free Chocolate Bars is the cocoa powder, its really important you use a high quality, unsweetened cocoa powder. I used a dutch processed cocoa powder, but as long as you use something that is unsweetened you will get all that deep chocolate flavor you’re looking. What is Monkfruit Sweetener (aka Sugar free maple syrup?) Sugar free maple syrup is what adds sweetness and smooth texture to the bar. I like to use Lakanto brand Maple Syrup as it’s naturally derived from monkfruit, vegan, and just so happens to be low glycemic. If you want you can use honey or regular maple syrup making for a low-sugar bar instead of sugar-free, go right ahead! It will still be a great alternative to a store bought bar. Can I Add to My Chocolate Bars? Once you have the 3 main ingredients mixed up, it’s so easy to dress up this bar of chocolate. You can flavor this with anything you want, in any combination, that appeals to you. From adding extracts, to chopped nuts, to coconut — it’s pretty endless. I’ve made salted chocolate bars, pistachio chocolate bars, and even sunflower seed and toasted coconut chocolate bars to name a few. Get creative and have fun making up your own flavors as you go along. Can I melt this chocolate or bake with it? This chocolate can be chopped up and added to things that are NOT going to be heated or melted. Since there is very little fat holding together, the bar itself does not melt like a regular bar filled with fats and fillers. This is more of a snacking bar, great for everyday cravings and homemade gifts! Get More Healthy Recipes!

Recipe Notes *If you do not want to use lakanto maple syrup you can use honey or regular maple syrup but then the chocolate bars will not be completely sugar free. For a sweeter bar add 2 tablespoons more of whatever liquid sweetener you choose. *These chocolates can be chopped up and added to other things but they can not be re-melted and used in placed of melted chocolate in other recipes. *Feel free to use whatever combination of add-ins you like!
