CHOCOLATE SYRUP, made with avocado oil! {Paleo, 3-ingredients}

Megan Uncategorized 27 Comments

As Hershey’s learned many years ago, humans love chocolate sauce, pourable chocolate sauce.

Because… humans can do all sorts of things with pourable chocolate sauce. We can lick it off our fingers if a little drips. We can, of course, pour it over ice cream. We can keep it in the fridge for a really long time so it’s there when we need it. We can make chocolate milk in a snap. We can make hot chocolate like that. We can add it to coffee. We can make bulletproof mochas with it. We can put it on pancakes and waffles and whipped cream. We can drizzle it on the rainbows of our imagination.

We don’t need to heat it up. It’s ready.

(Obviously, we’re not going to buy Hershey’s, which contains nasty sugars and preservatives,
which cause inflammation and disease over time, and which supports slave labor in Africa. πŸ™ )

So here’s the “first ever” avocado oil chocolate syrup, to meet all our needs.

Why do we love this idea?

Well, avocado oil is all the rage, for good reason. Firstly, it’s good for us, just like avocados: high in monounsaturated fats and Vitamin E. Secondly, it can be used for cooking: safe for high temperatures. Thirdly, it’s a pourable fat, which makes it super convenient for baking and cooking.

And lastly, Costco sells it. If not for them, most of us couldn’t afford it. So, it’s accessible. If you don’t belong to Costco, here’s the best priced bulk avocado oil from Amazon.

Chocolate sauce made with avocado oil is all these things: made with good fat, safe to heat, pourable (which means convenient, easy, ready now, when you want it); and finally, it’s affordable.

Let’s talk flavor.

You will love this chocolate sauce. It is dark and delicious and perfect- just the right balance of bitter chocolate and rich maple. The avocado oil is tasteless. So that’s another bonus. While we sometimes enjoy the flavor of coconut oil or other fats, in chocolate sauce it’s SO nice to just taste the delicious chocolate!

For a GAPS variation, substitute honey for the maple syrup.

Instructions
  1. In small-medium size saucepan whisk together cocoa and avocado oil. Add maple syrup, whisking again.
  2. Over medium heat, whisk chocolate until warm, about two minutes. Do not simmer or over-heat.
  3. Serve or keep in fridge until ready to use. The chocolate sauce will stay pourable but may need to be whisked or shaken before serving after sitting in fridge.
Recipe Notes

To make chocolate milk or hot chocolate with this syrup, you'll need to add sweetener to taste. I use just a bit of stevia (this one or this one) and it works great- delicious! Or use preferred unrefined sweetener, such a maple syrup, honey or coconut sugar, stirring or blending to dissolve.

    Thanks, Raia. It’s mostly used for high heat cooking, but works wells in baking and in most applications.

  • I totally could have used this chocolate sauce on the fried plantains I made last night! Would have been perfect! Thanks for sharing such a simple recipe, I love avocado oil and use it daily. LOVE <3

    Ha ha, thanks, Karen! Necessity is the mother of invention. πŸ™‚

  • Megan Stevens

    Thanks, Sylvie! Me too, so easy and it has no flavor to distract, in addition to it being healthy. πŸ™‚

  • Oh sweet mercy…I must make this! My kids would LOVE it! I need to avoid sugar, even the yummy natural sugars like maple syrup. Could I substitute stevia or would that affect the consistency since there wouldn’t be that half cup of liquid?

  • Megan Stevens

    Hi Dawn, I spent 2-3 years with stevia as my only sweetener, so I can relate. I think, actually, that it will work to some extent. I haven’t tried it. But the texture of avocado oil makes it worth trying. I would also pull back the cocoa a bit, to get the right thinness/thickness/pourability, using stevia to taste. I’d love to hear how it goes.

  • Kristy

    Excellent chocolate sauce, my friend! I made some yesterday and Jami and I have been eating it straight out of the jar… and with a little ice cream too! πŸ™‚ Thank you for sharing your wonderful knowledge and recipes with all of us! Loves to you!

    Have you tried subbing honey for the maple syrup?
