Here at Skinny & Co. we like to keep things pure and raw! While this can sometimes seem easier said than done, here is a fantastic recipe to get that chocolate fix without sacrificing nutritional value. So when you are craving a delicious and nutritious paleo treat, try these phenomenal Raw Chocolate Almond Bars! Special thanks to one of our very own Skinny Community, Brandy Mason, for the amazing recipe!
- 1/2 cup + 4 tbsp. Agave
- 6 tbsp. Maple Syrup
- 3 tsp. Vanilla
- 1/4 tsp. Almond Extract
- 1 1/2 tsp. Salt
- 8-10 cups Coarsely ground raw almonds
To make the crave-worthy cookie portion, mix the first five ingredients. Immediately pour the wet mixture into ground almonds and mix thoroughly. Divide the mixture into two halves. Press each half into an 8 by 10 in. pre-sprayed pan, set aside.
- 3/4 tsp. Salt
- 2 tbsp. Vanilla
- 1/2 cup Agave
- 1/2 cup Honey
- 1 1/2 cup Cocoa Powder
- 1 cup + 1 tbsp. Raw Skinny Coconut Oil
After you have pressed the cookie part into two individual pans, make the chocolate portion twice and pour over each cookie portion.
Freeze immediately. For best results, give this delicious treat a few hours to fully set and harden before enjoying with friends, family, or as a not-so-guilty pleasure!
