A Superfood Chocolate Bark that has every nut-free superfood topping you can imagine! From Quinoa to flax, and chia seeds, goji berries pumpkin seeds, and coconut. In addition, this bark encompasses a medley of crunch and flavor! Furthermore sweetened with goji berries, mulberry berries, and raspberries. Gluten-free, dairy-free, vegan, and nut-free too!
Every time I made this chocolate bark for recipe development I kept adding more ingredients. Each time the chocolate bark was made it was delicious, but I knew there was something else that was missing. Of course, I started to play with many types of superfoods. Naturally, I started with two ingredients to stay safe and test it out. Followed by three ingredients, then four, and eventually MANY.
Without a doubt, I kept adding superfood toppings to the chocolate bark. It seemed that all of these ingredients worked really well together, and tasted really good together. Comparatively, even though all versions were delicious, the best one was the medley. And Superfood Chocolate Bark was born!
This chocolate bark is dairy-free, gluten-free, vegan, and nut-free. As a matter of fact, I always use the finest ingredients for any recipe that enters my body. Remember that any chocolate you choose much be good quality dark chocolate, otherwise, your chocolate bark won’t be as good. As a tip, usually dark chocolate is bitter, with an often unfavorable flavor. Though once blended with coconut oil it goes from bitter to buttery. Uniquely, what is created is a silky, smooth, delicious, and incredibly palate-friendly chocolate bark that is loaded with 9 superfoods.
- Pumpkin seeds
- Flax seeds
- Chia seeds
- Hemp seeds
- Goji berries
- Mulberry Berries
- Coconut shreds
