Rocky Road Superfood Bars

These babies are so versatile, throw in your fav nuts, seeds or berries and edible essential oil to make your own bars.

Ingredients

  • 2/3 cup raw cacao powder OR 100% cacao buttons/liquor, melted (this option makes the dreamiest raw chocolate)
  • 2/3 cup coconut oil or cacao butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup or raw honey, or to taste
  • 1/2 cup coconut, shredded or chips, lightly toasted if desired
  • 1/2 cup toasted slivered almonds or preferred nut
  • 1/2 cup activated buckwheat or oats
  • 1/2 cup frozen raspberries or preferred berry- goji berries work well too.

Method

  1. Melt the butters and oils together over gentle heat- a Thermomix works well if you have one.
  2. Whisk or blend in sweetener and cacao powder.
  3. Toast coconut and nuts lightly if desired.
  4. Gently fold remaining Ingredients through.
  5. Pour into a loaf tin lined with baking paper.
  6. Set in the freezer.

Options:

  • Add 1/3 cup of your fav nut butter
  • Always sweeten and flavour with chocolate to desired taste
  • Cacao butter and Liquor (100% chocolate) are a splurge but make the best raw chocolate that stays set at room temp. Coconut oil and raw cacao powder are easier to find and a cheaper option that still works well.
  • Activated buckwheat gives the most delicious crunchy texture
  • Add a twist with a little pure orange oil
  • Your Juice Plus fruit chews are a fun addition!
