      Add 1/4 cup of coco powder. You can use 1/4 cup of chocolate chips too with the coco powder. Hope this helps. Please share your feedback once you try.
      Thanks. 🙂

      Hi Sim!!
      According to Ayurveda, Honey becomes toxic when heated. But Agave and Maple Syrup are safe for cooking. You can add 1/4 cup Agave or Maple syrup instead off sugar.
      Let me know if you have more questions.
      Thanks. 🙂
