Although this book is not a raw food book, the Paleo Cookbook For Dummies by Dr. Kellyann Petrucci has just been published and she has included some of my raw food recipes in it! She is very much into the health benefits of eating raw. So if your paleo or easing your way into raw, this may be a great book to check out!

Raw Chocolate Bark
I have been making this constantly. Its so easy and its so unbelievably good!
Its a basic chocolate recipe with added hemp seeds, chia, dried fruit and nuts. You can add whatever you like to it. Mix and match and experiment with different fruits, nuts, almond butter, shredded coconut and superfoods. You can even add flavors like vanilla beans and essential oils like peppermint, orange, etc… The cinnamon batch I made was the best so far.
Just use about equal parts raw cacao powder and melted coconut oil. Mix together (I use a hand mixer) and add a good amount of sweetener to taste (agave, honey, coconut syrup…) Just keep tasting until it’s not bitter and it is to your liking. I also add a couple of T of melted cacao butter but its fine if you don’t have any. Mix this well until there are no lumps and it’s smooth. It will be a chocolate sauce consistency. Next, add in your additions. For the picture above I added:
Chopped dried figs
Chopped dried apricots
Chia seeds (I love these in chocolate. It makes it takes like a nestles crunch)
Crushed and whole walnuts
Lots of Cinnamon
A little Himalayan sea salt
Mix this all together by hand. Then spread it out onto a parchment paper lined cookie sheet and place in the freezer for an hour. It doesn’t take long for this to freeze. Don’t make this too thin but not so thick that you cant break into it when you bite it.
