And that’s a very important thing—because metabolism is about a whole lot more than feeling warm and toasty. You can go ahead and start doing just that, by simply making this homemade chocolate and chowing some down. Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan, then add in the rest of the ingredients (except the fleur de sel). To make chunky dark chocolate bars, line a baking dish with parchment paper, and pour in the chocolate.
Just dip them in while the chocolate is still warm and in liquid form, then lay onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat. It makes me sad to see so many people shunning chocolate and cocoa at the advice of certain nutrition gurus, simply because it has a small amount of caffeine. Besides caffeine, cocoa contains a hefty amount of some very key nutrients that are hard to find in such a potent source elsewhere.
So, providing your body with natural, wholesome sources of this very important fuel is ideal. While salt is demonized by most of the mainstream nutrition scene, here among the alternative realm of real food, it’s generally pretty well-accepted as a beneficial nutrient.
Salt acts as a thermogenic substance in the body, which means it increases your energy expenditure and heat production. I highly recommend reading the books I’ve referenced here in this post—Eat for Heat, by Matt Stone, and The Nourished Metabolism, by Elizabeth Walling. Most cacao powder is RAW (processed at very low temps)… so, not quite the same as the Cocoa Powder Processed with Alkali that you are linking to on Amazon. I would be quite interested to know, if you can refer me to any scientific researches, that prove that coconut-oil has a positive effect on the metabolic rate and bodytemperature?
Your best scientific approach for the answer to your question would be to seek out your own sources on the internet. I have never cooked with or used carob powder before, but from the recipes I’ve seen in Nourishing Traditions, it looks like you can substitute it for cocoa. I made this last night, followed the recipe exactly, and mine looks identical to the posted photo of the chocolate. I’ve been on a low carb version of a paleo diet for 6 months and a variation of this recipe is one of my favourite snacks although I skip the sweetener and melt in a bar of 85% dark chocolate and chop up 1 date which I find is enough once you have switched to a low-carb diet.


I raised my body temperature (and my metabolic rate) by a full degree in less than a week, simply by eating coconut oil!
Caffeine actually has some health benefits, and there’s really no reason to avoid it entirely, if you ask me.
Natural sugars feed the metabolism and shut down the body’s stress response—raising body temperature and stimulating a healthy metabolic rate. Both are an invaluable resource in figuring out what you need to get your metabolism in optimal shape, so you can live a healthier, happier, more stress-free life.
I only recommend products I genuinely love, and that I believe would be of value to my readers. Nothing in this blog is intended for the treatment or prevention of disease, nor as a substitute for medical treatment, nor as an alternative to medical advice.
Is it the pure honey from like a bee farm (pure honey goes white when refrigerated) or the honey you buy from your local supermarket eg capilano brand??
I tried making a homemade “magic shell” which is very similar to this recipe, sweetened with cane sugar (which rapadura is, except less-refined)—but I quickly discovered that sugar and oil do not mix! It didn’t separate or do anything weird and i think it tastes kind of like a mounds candy bar. Molasses would make it even more supportive to the metabolism—with all that good magnesium in there! It does snap, though not quite like a chocolate bar, it’s still a bit more flexible than chocolate (probably due to the coconut oil, which is extremely soft even when solid) but it does, indeed, snap. Our bodies evolved to run on fat rather than sugar and we are capable of creating all the glucose we need internally. And with this recipe, you’ll get an amazing mix of metabolism-stoking ingredients—every one of them offers a benefit to boost body temperature and get your metabolic rate pumping. Then, either cut into bars or break into chunks. If you want to add a sprinkling of fleur de sel, do so!
Most of us are at least somewhat deficient in it, and few foods are a rich source of this critical mineral.
Getting enough glucose into your cells provides fuel they need to do their job, which is to provide energy to all of your body’s systems.
I made it again, but with honey and let it come to a good boil for a couple of minutes (whisking constantly).


I’ve been thinking about melting it down and adding natural peanut butter (which has no sugar) just to cut the sweetness. But yes, you could easily dilute it though by just re-melting and adding more coconut oil and chocolate. The only reason most humans crave sugar is because it is highly addictive but there is growing evidence that it is actually poisonous in high doses. Your body weight depends on the body metabolism rate that is how fast your body is burning up the calories, which you are taking through your food. That’s essentially what metabolism is—how effectively your cells are able to take in this fuel and turn it into energy.
But hey—eat up some of those chocolate-covered pretzels I made, and you’re 4 for 4, baby! I gave it a good whisking right before pouring it into the pan, and then put it straight into the fridge while it was still warm.
There is only ever a maximum of 2 teaspoons circulating in our blood at any time and any excess sugar gets converted to fat by the liver and stored (especially around the belly).
When our body metabolism rate falls much below our calorie intake the result is obvious weight gain. Be sure to store your chocolate in the refrigerator or even the freezer so it doesn’t get melty. Some foods enhance the body metabolism rate helping you lose the extra pounds faster while some foods may do just the opposite. Really don’t want to throw this out, given all the expensive ingredients that went into it. Thank you for posting a great recipe that is so easy and each person can adjust to their preference! Metabolism boosting foods or fat burning foods are neither rarely available nor are expensive.
I belive we are made in the image of God and the foods that he provided for us has a purpose not only as fuel but also medicinally and just for our good pleasure.
