Dark Chocolate Bark Recipe


Dark chocolate is well-known for its high levels of antioxidants, which makes it a great dessert! The darker the chocolate, the less sugar is added, so the healthier it is for you. Chia seeds are a great source of omega-3 fatty acids, and other nuts such as cashews and almonds provide some protein, fiber, and additional healthy fats. Sea salt is a fantastic source of not only sodium, but also many other trace minerals. 

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz dark chocolate, at least 65% cacao
  • 3 tbsp chia seeds (or hemp, or flax, or all!)
  • 1 cup nuts of choice (cashews, almonds, pistachios, walnuts…)
  • 1/2-1 cup gogi berries, dark cherries, currants, or dried fruit of your choice
  • Sea salt, to taste

Directions:

Warm the chocolate in a double boiler, stirring frequently until melted. While the chocolate is melting, mix the nuts, seeds, and dried fruit on a piece of parchment paper on a baking dish or plate. Once the chocolate has melted, pour over the nuts and fruit. Dust with sea salt. Let cool and harden. Break into pieces, and enjoy!
