Berries and Choc Sauce

Simple, but delicious. One of my 'go to' pancake toppings.

ā€‹

Ingredients

Fresh (or frozen and thawed) berries

2 tbsp coconut oil 

3 tbsp rice malt syrup 

Pinch of fine himalayan pink rock salt

2 tsp pure vanilla essence

2 tsp cacao powder

1-2 tbsp coconut milk

ā€‹

Method

1. Heat a saucepan on low to medium heat and add the coconut oil and rice malt syrup, stirring until it mixes together and the coconut oil melts completely.

2. Add the cacao powder, mixing it in well so there are no lumps, then add the vanilla and salt. Stir for a few minutes while on the heat, until it thickens to a sauce. Take off heat and leave to cool for 5 mins or so. Add some coconut milk 1 tbsp at a time until it is the right consistency to drizzle.*

3. Put berries on top of your pancakes and drizzle with the chocolate sauce.

 

* if you add too much coconut milk and it is too liquidy you can return the pan to the heat to allow it to thicken again.
