This is such a simple recipe but it really is worth having on hand for when your sweet tooth hits as it can be made quickly!
It also gives you some lovely crunchy protein and good fats so you can tell yourself, it's not ALL about the chocolate. ;)
So yep, this is a recipe that can be easily tweaked and where you can use whatever you have on hand but I do recommend the rice bubbles and the chocolate part!
200 grams chopped up dark chocolate - use your preferred brand but for this recipe I used 2 x 100 gram blocks of 70% fair trade organic chocolate from Aldi $1.99 per block! as it was so quick and easy and something I had on hand!
1/4 cup of coconut oil
2 cups of rice bubbles, puffed rice or puffed buckwheat etc. (1 cup of buckinis would even be nice here!)
1-2 cups of an assortment of seeds and chopped nuts. I used a mixture of roasted cashews, raw walnuts and pepitas for this one but you could use sunflower seeds, almonds, macadamias, goji berries or whatever floats your boat!
Spread your chosen mixture of nuts and seeds on a tray lined with some baking paper.
Melt the chopped up dark chocolate and coconut oil in a glass bowl over a saucepan of boiling water. Stir until melted together.
Remove glass bowl from the heat and add your rice bubbles to the chocolate mixture and stir in gently.
Then tip the chocolate and rice bubble mixture over your nuts and seeds.
Leave in fridge until set and then break up your crispy bark into pieces to store in a container in the fridge.
So that's it!
Easy peasy and because the dark chocolate is nice and rich, you won't eat too much of it and can just grab yourself a piece of bark with a cuppa after a meal or just when that sweet craving is rearing it's head.
It will melt quickly out of the fridge if you live in a warm area due to the coconut oil content.
Yours in health,
