Perfect for satisfying your sweet tooth while staying on track with your health goals, this chocolate bark is a must-try for all chocolate and nut lovers.

Recipe Tips

We're using several types of nuts. However, this bark will work just as well with just one to two types of nuts or even seeds if you follow a nut-free diet.

Make nuts easier to digest by activating them! Activation involves soaking the nuts in water for a specific amount of time, which helps to release enzymes and increase the bioavailability of important nutrients such as vitamins and minerals. Additionally, activating nuts makes them easier to digest and can enhance their natural sweetness and nutty flavor.

To activate nuts, simply soak them in filtered water for the recommended time (usually around 8-12 hours for almonds and 4-6 hours for other nuts), then rinse and drain them before using in recipes. This simple step can add an extra boost of nutrition and flavor to your favorite dishes.

Is 90% dark chocolate too bitter for you? You can use same amount of 85% dark chocolate, or even use sugar-free milk chocolate sweetened with healthier low-carb options such as Stevia, Erythritol or Allulose.

Need to make these keto bars travel friendly? Use cacao butter instead of coconut oil! Unlike coconut oil, cacao butter is stable at room temperature.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
