Coffee and cacao is a combination that is liable to do anything. If there is ever a day that I feel like there is a limitation a foot, I add a tablespoon of cacao to my Zoot
What is a Zoot? It’s what we call a cup of Bulletproof here in the hood. Okay, so I moved out of the hood in like 9th grade but that doesn’t mean I’m not still the realest thug out.
Okay, I’m not even a thug but I have a lyrical flow that would be a shame if I didn’t incorporate into my blogging abilities.
Alright fine, I didn’t even invent the Zoot Cup alone, it was a joined force of me and my business partner.
Regardless of this story, if you haven’t got zooted on a cup of Bulletproof Zooty, you’re missing out on a secret stash of super powers deep within yourself.
Today is your day though. I combined the powers of the Zoot with one of the world’s most cherished foods, chocolate.
This is no ordinary bar. It’s made with a uniquely processed cacao that is free of toxicity and loaded with all of cacao’s nutritional properties like zinc, magnesium, oxytocin and polyphenols for gut-health.
Enough chitter chatter though, let’s get to this chocolate platter.
Coffee-Cashew Cacao Bar
The great thing about this bar is you can eat it guilt-free. If you’re new to the blog here, then you should know that when I make chocolate I don’t play with sugar. I stick with only health-promoting sweeteners that keep the skin glowing and body functionally optimally.
Here’s what you’ll need:
- 1 cup of upgraded cacao powder
- 1 cup of upgraded cacao butter
- 1/4 cup xylitol
- 2 tbsp cashews
- 1 tbsp bulletproof coffee beans
- 2 tbsp BrainOctane
- 1 tbsp vanillamax
- 1 tsp raw honey *optional
Here’s how you make it:
- First, melt down your cacao butter in a double boiler.
- Next, add in the brainoctane, cacao powder, vanillamax and whisk together.
- Now for the xylitol. You’ll want to run it through a coffee grinder to turn it into a fine powder, this will make it easier to mix.
- When you have the xylitol powdered, add it to the mixture and then whisk.
- Take a large baking dish, line it with parchment paper then pour your chocolate in. It will disperse on it’s own but if needed, use a spoon to thin it out about the thickness of a regular chocolate bar.
- The next step is to chop up your coffee beans and cashews. You can use a knife and cutting board to do this. When they are chopped up to your desired size just sprinkle them over the chocolate.
- Freeze this for 20-30 minutes, Lastly, be it for looks or some additional sweetness or the healing powers from the raw honey, you can drizzle some over the top.
