This fruit and nut bar is from my good friend Joanna Steven, owner of Sirova, new mom, researcher, and one downright cool raw chic.
If you like dark chocolate with sweet berries and crunchy nuts, you will love this bar. Loaded with minerals and healthy fatty acids, this chocolate hardens quickly in the freezer and is firmer than chocolates made with coconut oil.
Half a cup cacao butter (melted amount)
Half a cup cacao powder, sifted
2 T agave nectar
1/4 cup goji berries
1/4 cup almonds, chopped coarsely
- On a 7″ plate (you can use the bottom of a springform pan), arrange the almonds and goji berries so they are uniform.
- Mix the cacao butter, powder and agave nectar until smooth. Pour gently over the berries and almonds, until uniformly covered.
- Place the plate in the freezer for the chocolate to firm up, about 15 minutes.
