More does mean better when it comes to chocolate.
The higher percentage of cacao means there will be less added sugar. 100% cocoa has 0g of added sugars. But not too fast—pure cacao is VERY bitter. Start with 70-90% and you will have a nice balance of chocolatey goodness without all the extra sugar.
Here’s What You Need:
- 1/2 cup oats (measured dry), cooked
- 1 ripe banana, sliced
- 1 Tbsp raw whole shelled pepitas (or your favorite unsalted/raw seeds)
- 1 dark chocolate square 70-90% cacao, smashed
- 1 Tbsp almond butter
Combine in a bowl and enjoy!
