This is my go-to recipe every time the chocolate craving sets in. It's basic and refined sugar-free, using only raw cacao and coconut oil. The pomegranate seed addition with some sea salt give the chocolate a lift in the right direction with its sweet, refreshing notes. Alternately, if you really have to, you can melt a bar or two of good quality 80% cocoa chocolate and dress them up with the pomegranate seeds. You can also try this recipe with other pulps such as pomelo.


  • 1 cup raw cocoa powder
  • 1 cup virgin coconut oil or cacao butter, or ½ cup of each fat
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 – 3 tablespoons raw honey
  • ½ cup pomegranate seeds
  • A pinch of sea salt


  1. Gently melt the coconut oil and/or cacao butter in a double boiler on low heat.
  2. Gradually stir in the cacao powder and vanilla extract. Mix until a smooth consistency is achieved.
  3. Add in the honey and stir. Taste along as you do this.
  4. Layer a loaf tin with a baking sheet and pour the chocolate mix into it.
  5. Gently place the pomegranate seeds onto the mix. Follow up with a pinch of salt.
  6. Refrigerate for at least an hour and enjoy. Refrigerate to store as well.
