Coco Nut Butter Bark
I don’t know about you, but for me, there are two things I love. One is new recipe books (I have a huge collection!) and the other is healthy treats. When a new cookbook provides me with a healthy treat recipe to try, it is like the perfect combination!

This recipe was totally inspired by the book I Quit Sugar by Sarah Wilson. It is a great book that I can recommend, especially for those of you who experience sugar cravings and especially the negative symptoms of detox.

I have pretty much had a batch of this bark recipe in the freezer since I discovered it, with each batch being a slight variation on the one I made before. I thought I’d share it it here now in the lead-up to Easter. If you have a sweet tooth that you are trying to ignore this year, then this recipe is a perfect chocolate egg substitute.

It is a pretty easy recipe to experiment with, and I encourage you to do the same. Add in different nuts and seeds, cacao powder, coconut milk or any other combo you think might taste nice.

This version I am sharing with you here is my favourite combination. This is seriously such an easy and delicious recipe, it takes just minutes to prepare, and doesn’t contain any nasty sugar yet provides a fix for a sweet craving you might have.

Ingredients

1/3 cup melted coconut oil
1/4 cup almond butter (I make my own by putting almonds into the food processor with some almond oil)
2 tablespoons coconut flakes
2 teaspoons coconut nectar
1/8 cup cacao nibs
1/8 cup goji berries (optional)

Instructions

  • In a small bowl, combine the oil, almond butter, coconut flakes and coconut nectar.
  • Add in the cacao nibs and goji berries so they are combined with the liquid mixture
  • Spread the mixture onto a tray lined with baking paper or foil
  • Freeze for 10-15 minutes, then break into pieces.
  • Pig-out guilt free!

**Note that the pieces of bark will melt if left at room temperature, so keep in the freezer or put into a container in the fridge.
