As I’ve mentioned before, I have a sweet tooth that can get the best of me sometimes. Chocolate is a serious weakness! While snacking on fruit is a healthy alternative to curbing those sweet cravings, sometimes you just have to eat some chocolate. With that said, this chocolate bark recipe is not only easy to make, but it’s healthy and can be tailored for any phase of your menstrual cycle depending on which nuts and seeds you choose to sprinkle on top.
For this recipe, start by combining 3/4 cup of cocoa powder with 3 tablespoons of maple syrup. Next, melt together 1/2 cup of coconut oil and 2 tablespoons of nut butter, and add it to the mixture. Once all ingredients are combined, pour the mixture onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Now for the fun part! Depending on your cycle phase, you can change up which seeds and nuts you sprinkle onto the chocolate. For this recipe, I used sunflower seeds, walnuts, and shredded coconut. Freeze the mixture until the chocolate hardens, break it up into various sized pieces, and enjoy!
