Who doesn’t love chocolate and dark chocolate is particularly good for our health and is an excellent source of antioxidants.
This recipe is great for a sweet treat as the addition of nuts and seeds means the sugar from the chocolate is slowed down and doesn’t impact our blood sugar levels as much. On top of that there are the additional benefits of the healthy fats and nutrients from the nuts.
Chocolate tasty bites are a great snack to have to hand for an afternoon pick-me-up or an after-dinner treat. This is probably one of our most simple recipes and it is extremely versatile so feel free to experiment with other flavours. I find pistachio nuts and dried cherries work really well and adds a beautiful colour when sprinkled on the top. You can also stir tiny chia seeds into the melted chocolate to add a little crunch and a big helping of fibre and omega-3 fats.
You could also make your own chocolate but for ease I use a bar of organic dark chocolate (see our homemade chocolate orange for a super simple homemade chocolate recipe).
