Behold a genius creation! Ok so maybe I’m overselling it and I’m sure this is nothing new, but it’s new to me and I love it! Truth be known, I got the idea to do this because a nut mix I had in the car got overheated the other day and the little dark choc pieces melted to create one big piece of nutty chocolate - it was yum.
I can down half a bar of chocolate in no time, and although there are some great dark chocolates that are relatively low in sugar, I wanted to make the chocolate go further and up the nutritional content. I always have a supply of nuts and seeds so I decided to get creating with a healthy blend of nuts, and melt down the chocolate to bind it all together (combined with a little coconut oil to help). The result is delicious.
It was pretty easy, and you can mix it up depending on what you have in your pantry.
I used a variety of the following to line a baking tray;
1/2 block dark chocolate low in sugar like Whittakers
1 TBS coconut oil
Add some extra goodness like a seed blend (LSA for example) or some chia seeds. I added in 2 TBS of The Wholesome Co’s stress and mind blend.
Roughly chop all of the nuts, lay on a tray lined with baking paper. Add in seeds, buckwheat and cacao nibs. Chop apricots and add.
Melt down chocolate with coconut oil and pour over top. Make sure all of your nut mix is covered and place in fridge to set! Once hard, break up with your hands and place into air tight containers.
