What are the weekends perfect for? Stocking up on raw cocoa treats and of course watching the Seahawks win! These raw cocoa bars are an excellent alternative to candy bars. You cant even compare the two because these bars are raw, no artificial colors or flavors and no preservatives. After you make them, store in the freeze because coconut oil melts at half time, I mean room temperate.
What you need:
•1/4 cup organic raw cacao powder
•1 tablespoon organic agave syrup
•1/4 cup organic coconut oil
Peanut butter layer:
•1/2 cup organic peanut butter
•1/2 cup organic almond Butter
•2 tablespoons organic coconut oil
1 tablespoon unsalted peanuts, chopped
dash of sea salt
unbleached parchment paper
In your first bowl, prepare cocoa layer by mixing all ingredients. Coconut oil melts at room temperature so the longer you mix, it will eventually mix and spread out. Depending on how many bars you want to make, you can make more cocoa but make sure to add equal parts coconut oil and cocoa powder. Using a spatula, pour or spread cocoa layer on parchment paper and place first layer in the freezer.
While the cocoa layer is freezing for about 10 minutes, in a separate bowl, start the peanut butter layer by mixing all ingredients. Pull out the cocoa layer and spread the peanut butter layer on top and then place in the freezer for 10-15 minutes.
Pull out the bars and add on the top cocoa layer and sprinkle sea salt, peanuts and rosemary on top before the bars begin to set.
Let sit in the freezer 10-15 minutes before serving, slice into bars and serve.
Enjoy! Love, Health and us
