Gimme all the BARK

I’m a little bit OBSESSED with bark. So far I’ve made Peanut Butter and Cinnamon Praline flavors. Have you tried them? OMG. You’ve gotta have some will power not to eat the whole dang batch! lol

The PB Bark has actually been the #1 recipe on Pretty Pies ever since I published it. And for good reason. It’s DELISH.

Chocoholic?

If you know me, you know I really love chocolate. You, too?

Sometimes that craving strikes and I’ve gotta have chocolate everything: pancakes, smoothies, mini PIES , big pies, and now chocolate BARK.

It’s incredibly EASY to make. But incredibly HARD to stop at just one piece 😉Chocolate Almond Bark (keto/vegan/paleo) PrettyPies.com

Oh, bark… how do I love thee

Let me count the ways. It’s because of your:

  • Crunchy, munchy add-ins
  • Incredible texture (that won’t break my teeth, haha)
  • Healthy ingredients — no sugar, dairy, or soy here! Just the good stuff.
  • Dose of good fats from coconut oil and almond butter. YAY!
  • Flavor! Almond is SO GOOD.

I always add some almond extract to my homemade almond butter. Yum! If you’ve never tried it, it’s another MUST. Add almond extract to a smoothie with banana, spinach and almond butter, too. Super delish!Chocolate Almond Bark (keto/vegan/paleo) PrettyPies.com

My favorite way to eat this is STRAIGHT FROM THE FREEZER. It doesn’t get rock hard like regular chocolate does. SO GOOD.

Prep Time5 mins

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup almond butter heaping

Instructions

  • Mix all ingredients (except the chopped almonds) in a food processor, mixer, or whisk by hand.
  • Taste and adjust to your preference (more stevia/cacao/salt/almond extract)
  • Pulse or stir in your choice of almonds (slices, slivers, whole or chopped)

Notes

I made this recipe in my food processor starting with 1 heaping cup dry roasted almonds that I processed into butter. Scrape down the sides and add in the rest. It's cheaper that way.
Must be kept refrigerated or frozen. Melts at room temp. Eat it straight from the freezer. No need to thaw.
