Let me just say: Chocolate Gravy and Biscuits. Let’s do it!
Is chocolate gravy a southern thing?
I grew up in Mississippi and Saturday mornings were my favorite time of the week. Because it was CHOCOLATE GRAVY day! We’d all gather around the table with a huge plate of homemade buttermilk biscuits and this amazing chocolate sauce. Oh, man! What a time!
Now, many years later, I’m able to relive that memory. But, in a much healthier way. The version my mama and granny made used whole milk, butter, and sugar. So, not healthy at all.
However, with just a few modifications, I was able to recreate that delicious cocoa gravy without all the hazardous ingredients. And, I, along with my five children, couldn’t be happier.
How To Make Chocolate Gravy
Add the cocoa and whole wheat flour to a small nonstick saucepan. I LOVE my Green Pans! Whisk the flour and cocoa together and set aside. You can use also organic unbleached flour or whole wheat pastry flour. They work just as well.
Place the saucepan on the stove, cook over medium heat, and continually stir the mixture until it starts to thicken and develops that gravy consistency. Finally, stir in the maple syrup, remove the chocolate gravy from the stove, and enjoy.
The most obvious way to enjoy this easy chocolate gravy recipe is over my Best Vegan Biscuits. But, it’s also great as a dessert. You can serve it over fruit or your favorite vegan ice cream. Just sayin’…
