Nothing better than a cup of tea and a piece of chocolate after dinner or when that 4pm sweet craving kicks in. Free from sugar, gluten, dairy, this bark instead features superfoods like cacao, coconut oil and nuts. This means that you'll experience nutritional benefits - stacks of magnesium for muscle relief / stress, healthy fats to improve skin quality and of course, natural mood enhancement.
So instead of feeling guilty because you're dreaming of chocolate, whip these up and know that you're nourishing your mind, body and soul with every bite.
1/4 cup coconut oil
2 tablespoons cacao
2 tablespoons of rice malt syrup, or preferred sweetener - I find maple syrup works well too.
pinch of himalayan salt
Chopped nuts - I used macadamias and a few coconut flakes, but explore the world of nuts and add whatever you desire. You could add seeds or berries too.
Line a tray / plate with baking paper
Heat coconut oil / cacao / sweetener / himalayan salt in a saucepan on low heat. To be honest, I'm not exactly sure of the quantities I used because I don't cook like that - I cook to taste. So as you're adding ingredients, have a taste or two (one of the best elements of being the chef, duh) and make sure it's to your desired sweetness.
Gently spread the sauce on the tray / plate and sprinkle nuts over the to
Place in freezer for a few hours - this one needs to be kept in here or the fridge as it will melt at room temperature.
Perfect as a little gift for your health loving friends!
