Chocolate Bark with Sunflower Seeds and Blueberries (Vegan, Gluten-Free)

This stuff is good. So good in fact, that I made it approximately five hours ago and it is loooong gone. I suppose that's what happens when you make something that is as delicious as it is nutrient dense. This bark is packed with antioxidants, iron and magnesium. Oh, and it's wicked easy to make, too.

Chocolate Bark with Sunflower Seeds and Blueberries 

  • 1 Cup Dark Chocolate (chips, chunks, bar.. doesn't matter what form, just be sure it's at least 60% Cacao and dairy-free) 
  • 1/2 Cup Dried Blueberries (be sure the only ingredient on the label is blueberries; no added sugar or preservatives)
  • 1/2 Cup Raw Sunflower Seeds
  • 1 Tablespoon Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 Tablespoon Vanilla Extract
In a double-broiler (you can make your own with a metal bowl over a saucepan filled 1/3 of the way with water), combine the chocolate with the coconut oil and vanilla extract. Continue stirring as it melts. Once it has melted, stir in the sunflower seeds and blueberries. Scrap out onto a sheet of wax paper and smooth out to desired thickness (1/4-1/2 inch is usually good). Place in the fridge or freezer to set until hardened. Once it's set, break off pieces and store in a container in the fridge. Enjoy and try to not eat it all at once!

Peace & Love,
