Recipes | Paleo Chocolate with Walnuts 

“You really eat weird food.” I get that comment all the time from people who observe how I remake popular dishes in a healthier way. I simply like to use what’s from the earth to make my food – I don’t prefer to eat a ton of processed, chemical-laden foods. I’ve been on a bit of a binge with eating this week since I started lifting again post-race and it sparked me to figure out how to make a paleo version of dark chocolate. I made mine with walnuts… You can read about walnuts here.

For the sake of ease, all of the ingredients I used can be purchased at your local Aldi (save the vanilla… That was a special Walmart purchase). 

It’s super easy and can be done in about 5 minutes plus chill time. 


3/4 cup coconut oil

3 Tbs. honey

3/4 cup baking cocoa

1 tsp. Vanilla 

Walnuts (optional)

What to do: 

In a microwaveable bowl, combine oil, honey and vanilla. Microwave approximately 30 seconds and then stir until all the oil has melted and is smooth. Add baking cocoa, stir until smooth. 

Spray a glass pie plate with cooking spray. Add walnuts to the bottom if you so choose. 

Then pour chocolate mixture over top and chill for about one hour in the refrigerator until hard.
