This is a super TASTY chocolate bar that is no-bake, rich and satisfying
These chocolate bars have a lot of good stuff in them. They are fudgy and chewy with a bit of crunch and have been my go to treat for awhile, and they will be yours too once you try them!
What I love about these chocolate bars is that they don’t require any baking and are super easy to put together.
The real star of these chocolate bars are the Goji berries! Native to China, the goji berry has been used in traditional medicine and recipes for thousands of years, and there are plenty of reasons why. First of all they have a beatifully sweet and chewy flavour, similar to a candies or jubies, except that they give your body a ton of reasons to be happy. That’s because they are loaded with Vitamin C and Zinc- both essential nutrients for giving your immune system fuel and strength, and are also a great anti-oxidant, fighting free radicals roaming the body. They contain 11 essential amino acids, iron, protein and fiber- no wonder they call it a SUPERFOOD!!
These bars are easy to keep in the fridge and last for two weeks or much more, but they never last that long in my household so I will never know for sure.
Chocolate is delicious, tasty, nutritious when eaten whole and just goes better with nut butter. My favorite combination is peanut butter and chocolate, but coming in at a very close second is almond buttter. And sometimes I prefer almond butter as I do in this recipe. I did try it with peanut butter first, but the almond butter is more subtle and still gives a nice fudgy texture. Because of the coconut oil used, it’s best to eat these directly from the fridge as they will become quite soft and messy when left out too long. The freezer will give these a richer, more firm consistency and will be delicious too so its reallly up to you!
The added cacao nibs give it that crunch and more anti-oxidants to boot!
It’s important to melt the almond butter and honey together but ensure you don’t boil it, simply heat slightly until you can mix them well. Boiling honey can kill its powerful enzymes and can weaken its anti microbial properties, so remember mild heat to melt them together!
I used a 9 x 13″ pan to make them thinner, but if you prefer a thicker chewier bar, then use a 9 x 9 ‘ dish instead. Don’t forget to let them cool in the fridge for a couple hours or freezer for an hour before cutting them up!
Okay so why would you make these? Well because they are easy, you don’t need to bake them, they are nutritious and they are really really good. And if that doesn’t convince you, then maybe these pictures will make you drool!
I used two different kinds of cacao below, one was regular and the other dutch. That is why they are slightly different colours, but any type will do.
