Chocolate Syrup {honey sweetened}

Chocolate Sauce {honey sweetened}


Chocolate sauce is a staple in most homes and the ingredients on your standard bottle you can buy at the store is less than ideal.  While we strive to eat a more traditional and healthy diet, that doesn’t mean we’ve given up all ‘the good stuff’.  No we still eat chocolate and drink coffee, but we do it a little different than most.

Instead of just buying the standard fare at our local grocer, we stick to traditional foods and make our own.  We don’t use chocolate syrup often but when we do I’d like it to be somewhat wholesome.

    Hi Katie! Thanks for stopping by the Let’s Get Real hop today. You had me at chocolate. I eat a mostly Real Food diet and still love chocolate. Dark chocolate is full of antioxidants so if I’m eating chocolate without all of the junky ingredients then it is health food, right? My kids will think I’ve lost my mind when I tell them I’m making chocolate syrup. We love banana “sundaes” with peanut butter drizzled over them. Now I can have peanut butter and chocolate. Super yummy!

      Oh Christina, YES it’s a health food….or at least that is what I tell myself 🙂 Peanut butter? I haven’t thought of that. I will be trying that soon! Hope you enjoy it.

    Doesn’t boiling the honey kill all the healthy properties of it???? Could you boil everything and add the honey and vanilla after it has cooled a bit? Otherwise, what is the benefit of the honey?

    This was pretty good on our gluten free pancakes with homemade organic strawberry culis, fruit and lebneh (Middle Eastern cheese, like thick yogurt). I don’t like the fact that the raw honey is heated. Still use raw though to hopefully avoid some other bad stuff.
