This superfood chocolate bark is loaded with healthy nuts, seeds, and dried fruit. It’s the ultimate healthy treat!
It seems like from the start of January everyone is looking to eat healthier and detox from the holidays.
I’ll admit…I’m one of those people.
While I of course still enjoyed some healthy soups and salads over the holidays, I definitely also indulged in some not so healthy treats. I also took some time off from the gym. (after having come down with a bad cold, and then coming down with laziness.)
So this 2018 so far has been all about yoga, green smoothies, and quinoa salads for me.
That being said, I still have a really big sweet tooth. I always find I need at least a bite of something sweet after a savory meal. Anyone else the same?
Rather than reaching for really sugary treats, I decided to work on some recipes that are both healthy, but still satisfy that sweet tooth.
This superfood chocolate bark has officially become my new favorite healthy treat. It’s made with 70% dark chocolate, (and we all know how good dark chocolate is for you!) chia seeds and goji berries. (among some other healthy nuts & seeds)
I mean, I don’t even know if it’s fair to call this a “treat.” It’s really more like an explosion of superfoods all mixed together!
The thing I love most about the superfood chocolate bark is how easy it is to make. I’m talking 10 minutes, 6 ingredients, 1 bowl, and 1 pan.Print
Superfood chocolate bark
- Pour the chocolate chips into a bowl
- Fill a small pot halfway with water and bring to a boil.
- Lower the heat to medium and place the bowl on top of the pot of water (*the bowl should be slightly larger than the pot, so the bottom of the bowl sits just on top of the pot)
- Use a spatula and stir the chocolate every minute or so until completely melted.
- Remove from heat.
- Line a pan with parchment paper and pour the melted chocolate into the pan.
- Use the spatula to spread the chocolate into a large rectangle.
- Sprinkle the hazelnuts, goji berries, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, and chia seeds on top.
- Place in the fridge to cool for 30 minutes.
- Using a sharp knife, cut the bark into pieces.
- Store in an airtight container.
Tips & suggestions:
- You can use a silicone mat instead of parchment paper to prevent the chocolate from sticking
- You can also use a microwave on a low setting to melt the chocolate
