There is something you may not know about me, I don’t like very sweet foods.
I use to love sultanas, their sticky sweetness sandwiched between apricots and almonds was my go to snack. Fast forward a number of years and quite frankly I’d prefer a bowl of crisp raw veggies. Seriously, what beats the crunch and refreshment of cucumber and celery.
However, after the gorgeous boost of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals there is space for some wholesome chocolate in the form of homemade chocolate bark. Even the virtuous are allowed a chocolatey snack occasionally 🙂
This recipe is easy peasy and mighty delicious. Sub any of the ingredients for other nuts, nut butters, seeds and dried fruit. You could even impress the guests with the addition of edible rose petals, lavender or freeze-dried raspberries. You are limited only by your imagination.
250mL Cacao Butter
2 Tablespoons Raw Cacao Powder
2 Tablespoons Honey
2 Tablespoons Peanut Butter
1/2 Cup Buckwheat Groats
1/3 Cup Almonds
1/3 Cup Goji Berries
Over a low heat, melt the cacao butter.
Once melted, remove from the heat.
Stir through all remaining ingredients. Set aside.
Line a flat tray with baking paper.
Pour the chocolate bark contents into the tray.
Place in the freezer until set.
Once set, break up into ‘bark’ pieces.
Store in the fridge.
