Ingredients:

1/4 cup Toasted Almonds

1/3 cup coconut oil

3/4 cup raw cacao powder

1/4 cup real maple syrup

Pinch of sea salt

In a small saucepan over medium heat toast the almonds. (Move them around periodically so they don’t burn).  Roughly chop the almonds.

Melt the coconut oil in a small saucepan over low heat.  Slowly add the cacao powder and maple syrup whisking to combine.  Remove from heat and let cool for a couple of minutes.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and pour the mixture on top. Sprinkle toasted almonds on top and a pinch of sea salt (more or less to your liking).

Put in the fridge for 3-4 hours, then break apart into pieces.  Store in the fridge for when that craving hits!
