Raw Superfood Chocolate Bars Recipe

Alongside my recent post about dessert foods that are best for people with PCOS, I have been thinking of some new recipes that could work well. I enjoy making my own raw chocolate, so thought about making a bit of a twist on the normal bars that I make. Normally they are just a dark, raw bar, so why not mix it up a little bit?

The handy things about these bars, is that you can pretty much use whatever you have in your cupboard. You can see the ingredients that I used below. But if you have other bits and bobs in your cupboards, then go ahead and throw them in. You could use sultans, raisins, other naturally dried fruit, peanuts or almonds, for instance.

But without further ado, here are the ingredients that I have used and what you need to do.

Raw Superfood Chocolate Bars

Ingredients:

  • 140g raw cacao butter
  • 6 tbsp raw cacao powder
  • 80g raw nut butter (I have used almond and cashew and they both work well)
  • 6 tbsp coconut sugar
  • 6 tbsp maple syrup
  • pinch of Himalayan pink salt

For the Mix-Ins:

  • 120g nuts (I have used a mixture of walnuts and cashews but choose your favourite)
  • 70g dried cranberries
  • 30g goji berries
  • 40g figs

What to do:

  1. Place the cacao butter into a bowl and place over a bowl of simmering water. Let the butter melt slowly (it needs to stay below a certain temperature to still be classed as ‘raw’. If you have something like an AGA, then let it melt slowly on that instead).
  2. Chop all of the mix-in ingredients on a large chopping board. Then stir all of the mix-ins together in a large bowl. Spread evenly along the bottom of a lined baking tray or the bottom of silicone chocolate bar moulds, if using.
  3. Mix the cacao powder, along with the nut butter, sugar, syrup and salt, into the melted cacao butter. Whisk together to make sure that you get it all nice and smooth.  Then pour onto the top of your mix-in base. Make sure that it is all distributed evenly.
  4. Leave to chill in the fridge for at least two hours. Chop and store in an airtight container and it will keep in an airtight container for a couple of weeks.

These are seriously more-ish but actually rather filling. So you don’t need to have too much and they really hit the spot when you want something sweet. My kids have been eating them too and my husband said they tasted ‘really normal’! haha. I’ll take that as a good thing! Enjoy.
