Chocolate Pistachio Bark With Maple Tahini Drizzle

I made this chocolate bark in honour of World Pistachio Day a while back (yes that is a REAL thing and its freakin’ amazing)

The maple tahini drizzle on top adds a delicious nutty icing that pairs perfectly with the crunchy pistachios and decadent chocolate!

This recipe is completely refined sugar free – the only sweetener used is good ol’ maple syrup. In fact, this whole recipe uses very few ingredients – all with amazing health benefits!

Healthy fat and fibre from the coconut + coconut oil

Muscle relaxin’ magnesium from the chocolate

Hormone balancing help and healthy glowing skin from the tahini

LOTS of protein and fibre from the pistachios

aaand tons of minerals from the maple syrup

This dessert essentially saves lives. You should really make it for your health.

  • ½ cup coconut oil

  • TOPPINGS:
  • ½ cup flaked coconut

METHOD
