Raw DARK Chocolate almond bark- 5 ingredient heaven

This full, smooth and incredibly delectable raw chocolate will satisfy your chocolate cravings and give you a boost of nutrition!

Dark-Chocolate-Sea-Salt-Almond-Bark-5

Chocolate:

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil
  • 1/3 cup Raw cacao powder
  • 1 TBSP agave nectar
  • 1 TBSP almond butter
  • ½ cup sprouted almonds

Filling: optional others

¼ cup chopped filling

– Almonds, hazelnuts, raisins, cashews, goji berries, hemp seeds, walnuts, macadamia nuts, dates, cranberries, pumpkin seeds, dried bananas, pecans, peanuts, shredded coconut, and dried fruits such as blueberries, mango, cherries, or apricot.

Directions:
Put the coconut oil in a bowl, and place that bowl inside another bowl filled with warm water.  This will allow the coconut oil to heat up just enough to melt.

Add the cacao powder, almond butter and agave, and mix well.

Next throw in your fruit, nuts, and flavorings, pouring into an 8 x 8 pan lined with wax paper.

Place the pan in the freezer for around 10 to 15 minutes, then remove and cut into 16 even pieces.

If you use coconut oil, store in the fridge to keep from melting as it will soften at room temperature.

 

 Your never going to eat other chocolate!
