RECIPE: Chocolate cravings and the 5-minute fix

For perfectly justifiable feminine reasons I wanted a quick indulgent bite of something chocolate. Panicked at the thought of not having anything on hand and fearing the task of creating an entirely new recipe, I threw together a simple and most decadent  dessert.

5-minute Chocolate Mint Tart
(serves 2-3)
1 heaping tablespoon coconut oil (warm/melted)
1 tablespoon cacao powder
1 tablespoon maple syrup
a few drops of peppermint extract

In the smallest bowl/dish you can find (in our case, an espresso cup) combine all of the ingredients and stir until mixed completely. Stick the tart in the fridge for 5 minutes to harden. When it's firm it's ready! 

So easy! So delicious! and no nuts, flours, grains, or questionable ingredients.

Play with the combination a bit: omit the peppermint, add vanilla or almond extract, throw some goji berries in there, whatever! It's YOUR cravings you're listening to.
