This chocolate syrup is made with avocado oil. It’s healthy, it’s convenient, it’s fast to make with only 3 ingredients and no cooking!

Chocolate sauce.  We can lick it off our fingers if a little drips. We can 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 with whipped cream. We can drizzle it on the rainbows of our imagination.

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

Avocado Oil

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 of 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.

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. For Keto, use stevia to taste.

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.
