At a certain time of each month I have a need/craving for chocolate. Maltesers, I love them and they are so yummy. Obviously I can't have them now so need an alternative. Can anyone suggest anything please I'm desperate!

Thanks in advance.
1) Hot chocolate made with soy milk and a spoonful of organic cacao +/- sugar (I like sugar).

2) Try this recipe that a friend has directed me to, but which I haven't yet tried: http://quirkycooking.blogspot.com.au/20 ... -free.html

3) Make the Chocolate Brownie recipe from this site and keep in the freezer for moments of need: http://www.overcomingmultiplesclerosis. ... +Brownies/

These are my go-to snacks when I must have something chocolate:

Brownies-

Chocolate zucchini muffins(taste more like a cupcake because they are pretty rich)-

Cocoa smoothie-
1 c. Milk (soy, almond, rice, whatever you prefer)
1TB. Cocoa powder
1 frozen banana

Blend until smooth and enjoy! You can add 1TB. Almond butter for a more creamy treat, but it is just as good without it!

I hope these help because chocolate bars are a no-no and really, who wants a tiny square of chocolate when they can enjoy a whole muffin? I never thought I could give up chocolate, but it's been almost a year and the craving disappeared about 1-2 months into it. I was shocked!

Great thanks for those, will try them next month maybe as the craving has totally gone now.
Would these be allowed? http://www.thewannabechef.net/2012/01/0 ... -brownies/

Raw Salted Almond Brownies


Prep time: 10 minutes

Cook time: 0 minutes

Ingredients(Makes a dozen brownies):

16oz pitted dates
1/4 cup raw almond butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
1/3 cup almonds
1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt

Method:

Put the dates in a food processor and blend until they stick together into a ball of dough. If the dates haven’t come together after a few minutes, add a tablespoon or so of water until they do.
Add in the cocoa powder and almond butter and continue blending until they are mixed into the dough.
Add in the almonds and sea salt. Pulse until the almonds are broken up into pieces.
Turn off the food processor and move the mixture to a different bowl. Work it with your hands until all of the ingredients are well mixed together and the almonds stick in the batter.
Turn the dough out onto a piece of parchment paper and press with your hands into a square shape roughly 9×9. Cut into 12 pieces. Store in a sealed container at room temperature when not eating.
Yes! Those look good! I might have to try that next time. Let me know how they taste if you try them.

Cheers,

They are really lovely!! Try them.

One thing to mention though is to add the dates slowly and make sure you add a tablespoon of water if they are not binding together. If you out in all the dates at once it can overwhelm your blender/food processor and burn out the motor.

We made the almond butter too. It was good to know how to do it because neither of us had made a nut butter before. We ended up with loads though so now need to work out some other uses for it.
