Cacao-Hemp Brittle

2 Tbsp Navitas Raw Cacao Powder

2 Tbsp Rocky Mountain Grain Hemp Powder

1 Tbsp Dr. Bronner’s Whole Kernel Unrefined Coconut Oil

1 Tbsp Nutiva Coconut Manna

½ - 1 tsp Vanilla Extract

12 drops Stevita (or stevia of your choice to taste)

2 tsp chopped toasted almonds (or nuts of your choice)

Coarse sea salt to taste


Line a baking sheet with wax paper. Combine cacao and hemp powders in a mixing bowl. In a separate bowl, melt coconut oil and coconut manna together over a steam bath (for a thinner consistency, increase the amount of oil while reducing the amount of manna). Add vanilla and stevia to the oil. Pour the liquid into the dry ingredients, incorporating thoroughly. Pour or spread mixture on wax paper. Sprinkle with nuts and sea salt. Chill in refrigerator 30 minutes. Eat. Swoon.

Keep this treat cool, as the coconut oil will revert to its liquid state if warmed.

1 part Orange Juice of your choice

2 parts Sparkling Water of your choice
