Homemade healthy, sugar-free, dairy-free, vegan chocolate - tastes just like a golden rough! So good!

Homemade Golden Rough


  • 1/2 cup coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup cocoa powder (unsweetened from the healthy food store - its a super food!)
  • 1 tablespoon tahini (I used hulled in this recipe but use either)
  • 3 tablespoons rice malt syrup (or your sweetener of choice)
  • handful of coconut chips (preferably the unsweetened kind)


  • Add the cocoanut chips to a dry frying pan and cook over medium heat until golden - watch them close as they will burn easily.
  • Melt the coconut oil in a saucepan on low heat. Whisk in the cocoa, followed by the tahini, rice malt syrup. Poor into a baking paper lined dish and sprinkle with the toasted coconut. Freeze until set. Serve straight from the freezer or fridge.


My chocolate bar was about 1cm thick. Crimp the baking paper at one end so it doesn't run to thinly.
If pouring into moulds add the coconut first and then the chocolate mixture.
If it is a hot day the chocolate will melt if left out of the fridge too long.
