Healthy raw chocolate – with Anna from Gleem Hamburg
Tasty AND healthy sweets that are beneficial for your body and your skin.
Who doesn’t want that???
I met Anna from Gleem – Finest Natural Sweets in Hamburg.
And we made healthy raw chocolate balls together which you can do at home.
They are raw, vegan, gluten-free, paleo and only sweetened with dates.
You can watch the video step-by-step here.
Below you’ll find the whole recipe.
Anna’s recipe makes it easy for you to make healthy raw chocolate balls at home.
Ingredients for the filling for Anna’s healthy raw chocolate:
- 4 g / 1 tsp of hazelnut paste
- 180g datepaste (you can get the datepaste here in Anna’s shop or blend dates with water in this proportion: 5 dates to 1 tsp of water)
- 10 g raw cacao powder
- 1 pinch of salt
Knead all the ingredients to a get the truffle mass.
The salt makes sweets sweeter, it’s like a natural flavor enhancer.
Then form small balls or squares in the size of a praline.
For the chocolate icing:
(or use 70g cacao butter and 30 g cacao powder)
Add the mass into a metallic bowl on top of warm water.
Make sure that the best temperature to melt chocolate is at 33°C / 91 °F.
If the water is too hot or too cold please change the water.
It might take a while to melt the chocolate in this method.
But we want the chocolate to stay raw and also not to become grey after cooling down.
When everything is melted use 2 forks to turn the pralines in the chocolate.
Then let the chocolate – which is too much – drop back into the bowl.
After that put the praline on a baking paper.
As long as the chocolate is still liquid you can garnish the pralines with nuts or blossoms.
Once you are done put the pralines in the fridge or freezer.
É voilà, enjoy your delicious healthy raw chocolate balls to a nice cup of coffee.
Thank you Anna for this great recipe and the cool video we did together.
