Recipe: Melt In Your Mouth Raw Honey, Dark Chocolate & Coconut Bites

Dark Chocolate CoconutDark Chocolate Honey Bites

1 cup Jacobite East Lothian honey (stockists – The Mousehole Deli in Portobello)
1 cup Lucy Bee extra virgin raw organic coconut oil  
1 cup cocoa powder (try extra brute red brown from Cocoa Barry)
1 tsp of pure vanilla extract (I used Bulletproof Madagascar upgraded vanilla)
1/2 tsp sea salt (ad more for that sweet salted taste)
optional: nuts (salted nuts even better!)


Place all ingredients in a food processor and process until well blended. Line a large loaf pan with wax/parchment paper and spread mixture about 2cm thick. Wrap up in parchment paper and refrigerate for several hours (overnight) Cut into small squares and store in an airtight container in the fridge.

Tip: Don’t melt the coconut oil or it will sit on the top of the cocoa honey mixture. Lightly soften. It’s ok if some of the oil sets on the top. Less honey will give a firmer texture.

New Stockist: Mousehole Deli Portobello takes delivery of Cockenzie House honey

the-mouse-hole-deliAt last this year’s honey is ready and I’m proud to be supplying The Mousehole Deli in Portobello, our first stockist.

They have in stock Jacobite limited edition Cockenzie honey. This is a very small batch of honey, only 30 x 110g jars and exclusive to the deli at £5.50

The local East Lothian runny honey was made by my honeybees in Cockenzie during the last two weeks of August and has a delightful unique flavour, a hint of blossom from willow herb & garden flowers within Cockenzie House and surrounding gardens.

You can find the Mousehole Deli at 131 Portobello Hight Street opposite the police station
