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. 🙁 )
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.
