By Naturopath Stephanie

Makes 10-20 pieces


  • 1⁄4 cup of cacao butter
  • 3⁄4 cup of raw cacao powder
  • 1⁄2 cup of coconut oil
  • 1⁄2 cup of pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoon of chopped pistachios
  • 2 tablespoon of chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoon of goji berries


On a stove, melt the coconut oil and cacao by placing a glass bowl on-top of a small pot of simmering water. Stir well until melted but lukewarm.

Add the cacao powder, maple syrup, vanilla essence and a pinch of salt and stir well until a chocolate liquid forms.

Take off the heat. Stir in half of the chopped nuts and goji’s.

Pour the mixture into a rectangular baking tray lined with baking paper.

Sprinkle remaining nuts and goji’s on top for a pop of colour. Place into the freezer for half an hour to set.

When ready to serve, snap bark into triangle pieces
