Superfood Dark Chocolate Bark

Chocolate bark is a holiday season favorite, and one of the best things about it is it’s so easy to make in so many different ways.

You can add different nuts, seeds, and dried fruits (as well as many unhealthy things like candy and Oreo chunks, but we wouldn’t recommend it). This approach is about as healthy as it gets, since it’s packed with crunchy superfoods, but it also works because it has a ton of different textures.

Plus, it’s really colorful and will look super pretty on your favorite platter (and on Instagram, obviously).

20 minutes

12 Servings

Ingredients

1/2 cup sliced almonds

10 ounces dark chocolate chips

1/2 teaspoon ground coffee

1/4 cup goji berries

2 teaspoons chia seeds

1/4 teaspoon sea salt

 

Directions

Superfood Dark Chocolate Bark
  1. Preheat your oven to 250 F.
  2. Place the almonds on a baking sheet and toast in oven for 10 to 12 minutes. Once lightly toasted, remove from the oven and set aside to cool.
  3. Place chocolate chips on a baking sheet lined with parchment, sprinkle over coffee grounds. Set in oven for 2-4 minutes. As soon as the chocolate has softened, remove it from the oven.
  4. Using a spatula, spread the chocolate out until about ⅛ inch thick.
  5. Sprinkle on toasted almonds, goji berries, chia seeds, and sea salt.
  6. Slide the chocolate with the parchment onto a cool counter to harden. Let set for one hour or more if needed. You can also let cool in refrigerator.
  7. Once chocolate has hardened, cut into random shapes with a sharp knife.
  8. Be sure it’s cooled and hardened completely before storing.

WHY WE LOVE THIS RECIPE

Dessert that’s filled with superfoods? Yeah, we’re into that. Dark chocolate is incredibly nutritious on its own due to its high flavanol content. Goji berries are antioxidant-rich; chia seeds contain protein and healthy fats. The bark is also gluten-free, unlike many of the other cookies you’re likely to make around the holiday season.
