The BEST Almond Butter Bark I Have Ever Tasted!!!

Another super quick recipe that can help satisfy any “sweet” cravings you might have. And if you can’t do nuts, you can substitute sunflower seed butter for the almond butter.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup coconut oil, softened
  • 1/4 cup almond butter*
  • 2 TBSP coconut flakes
  • 2 tsp honey
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tbsps toasted carob powder

Process

  1. Mix all ingredients in a bowl.
  2. Spread on a parchment paper lined cookie sheet.
  3. Sprinkle with sea salt.
  4. Place in freezer for about 1 hour
  5. ENJOY!

Notes  You will be able to make a thicker bark if the almond butter is cold.  If warm, it will spread very easily.

*If you can’t do nuts, replace the almond butter with sunflower seed butter.
*The above photo is NOT my bark.  They used dark chocolate shredded on top & I mixed the carob powder into mine.  Try both!
