Sea Salt-Almond Butter-Chocolate Bark

Ok, so the title of this recipe is way too long, but I felt it best described what this creamy, melt in your mouth, chocolate delight had going on. I could have just called it Superfood Chocolate Bark, but that's so boring, even though it's packed with so many health benefits it should be added to the USDA food pyramid. Seriously, look at that ingredient list and tell me this shouldn't be its own food group. 

We've got coconut oil that's full of good fats and lauric acid to help support the thyroid, energy production, hormonal balance and has antiviral, antibacterial properties. Raw cacao powder is packed with antioxidants and a fun way to get in some essential minerals like magnesium, chromium and zinc. Almond butter to add some protein and richness. Medicinal mushrooms to help the immune system and goji berries for antioxidants and trace minerals. Another bonus is this is low glycemic and if you skip the goji berries, zero glycemic. If you don't have stevia and xylitol, you can easily substitute with your favorite sweetener. This recipe is a snap to make and you probably have most of the ingredients in your pantry. If not, check out the City & Sea Trading shop and stock up!

Sea Salt-Almond Butter-Chocolate Bark
Makes 12 servings

Prep time: 15 minutes, plus 20 minutes to chill

1/2 cup coconut oil, warmed to liquid
¼ cup raw almond butter
1-2 tablespoons xylitol granules
1 tablespoon reishi powder (optional)
1 tablespoon chaga powder (optional)
Dash of vanilla powder
Goji berries (optional)

Blend all ingredients except salt and goji berries, if you’re including them, in a blender until smooth. You want to break down those xylitol granules, so about 1 minute in a Vitamix.

Pour chocolate over a baking sheet lined with parchment or wax paper. I like my bark to be thin, so I spread it out a bit, but if you like it thicker use a smaller tray or you can pour into chocolate molds. Sprinkle with sea salt and goji berries. Chopped nuts would also be a great addition or other dried fruit.

Chill in freezer for 20 minutes or until solid. Break into desired size pieces by hand. Store in a container in the refrigerator or freezer.

*Omica liquid stevia is more potent than store bought brands. Adjust to taste.

This might possibly be the yummiest thing ever!! Has anyone tried to make it with carob? This would make a heavenly post-dinner dessert with a cup of tea. I Know carob won't have the same wow factor, but I'd like to give it a try.
