Healthy Sweet & Salty Chocolate Bark

healthy sweet and salty chocolate bark

So this was an accidental DREAM of a clean treat made on Snapchat last night! So you will have seen I had a chocolate craving and hit the shops for ingredients and then hit the kitchen to concoct a delicious mess!

The basic ingredients for homemade chocolate as you all know from my Clean Mars Bars recipe is Coconut Oil, Cacao Powder and a little something sweet – generally Maple Syrup, Agave, Honey or Stevia. I wanted something quick and easy so with that in mind I decided to go with a Chocolate Bark. I had no idea how it was going to turn out but I was pleasantly surprised!

Chocolate Bark

  • 1 Cup Coconut Oil
  • 1 Cup Cacao Powder
  • 1/3 Cup of Maple Syrup
  • 1/8 Cup of Meridian Coconut & Peanut Butter (optional)

You can replace the Maple Syrup with Honey or Agave if that’s your preference, or leave it out completely. The Peanut butter is not necessary, or you can replace with Almond Butter.

Additional Ingredients

  • Hazelnuts
  • Almonds
  • Walnuts
  • Macadamias
  • Cashews
  • Goji Berries
  • Cranberries
  • Himalayan Pink Salt for roasting the nuts

These weren’t measured, I just added a handful of each. You can put as little or as much of each as you want, add additional nuts / fruit bits or leave some out. Totally depends on your preference. You could also add seeds to this too – eg pumpkin and sunflower!


  • A mix of leftover crushed nuts from the above
  • Goji Berries to decorate
  • Desiccated coconut to decorate
  • Sprinkle of Sea Salt for taste
