  • bowl and spoon


  • 1/2 cup cocoa fair trade (see link below)
  • 1/2 cup butter OR coconut oil OR lard, melted and partially cooled
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup for Paleo or liquid low carb sweetener for Keto or honey for GAPS
  • 2 pinches sea salt


  • In a small bowl combine cocoa and melted, cooled fat. Stir well. (Make sure no water gets in the bowl.)
  • Add maple syrup or low carb sweetener (or honey for GAPS), and stir well to combine. (If you use only stevia, your ganache will be thicker. Warm it gently to drizzle or spread more easily.)
  • The ganache is now ready to eat right out of the spoon! (...IF you used coconut oil or butter, not lard. Lard is excellent when you're topping something soft, like a cheesecake that's chilled!, and you don't want a hard topping [...BUT not as yummy all by itself when made with lard.]) Or slather on bread, waffle; use as a topping for cheesecake; drizzle over brownies etc.
