This Superfood Chocolate Bark is perfect to kick off the new year! It’s the perfect healthy dessert and afternoon pick-me-up. These bad boys are jam-packed with lots of nutrient-dense healthy ingredients And they are paleo, vegan, gluten-free!
I don’t usually set a new year resolution. Part of it is because I rarely remember to check what they are and keep myself accountable (Okay, this may need to change in 2019).
But in this new year, I want to create more easy healthy paleo desserts and snacks for those of you who may have a busy schedule.
I know when I was working my 9 – 5 corporate job, it was hard to find the energy or time to create healthy snacks for my sweet tooth.
NO bake vegan chocolate bark
This Superfood Chocolate Bark is one of the easiest healthy treats I have ever made.
There is no baking required for this vegan treat!
All you need to do is to melt a few dark chocolate bars and top it with some delicious and healthy toppings. Then freeze it to harden.
Et Voila! These little powerhouses are packed with antioxidants and they are the perfect healthy snack and dessert on the go.
Health Benefits of Cacao
Chocolate sometimes has a bad reputation. That’s because most of the store-bought chocolates are filled with sugar.
But cacao is actually an amazing superfood that has lots of health benefits.
Chocolate is packed with antioxidants and can improve your mood (why chocolate makes us happy), and also may aid weight control (Read more Here).
For this healthy chocolate bark recipe, I used hu kitchen dark chocolate. Their chocolate is paleo, gluten-free, and vegan! I topped it with some raw nuts, dried goji berry, and hemp seeds.
With only a few ingredients, this dark superfood chocolate bark is unarguably my favorite!
Health Benefits of Goji Berry
Goji berries are an excellent source of antioxidants. They may help stabilize blood sugar, boost the energy level and immune system, and more, which makes them perfect for this superfood chocolate bark.
Growing up in China, I remember my grandma would always make me tea with goji berries to help with my eyesight.
Peppermint chocolate bark
There is always room for more desserts around the holidays and this is the perfect way to bring a nutritious superfood treat to the Christmas party.
To make this vegan chocolate bark into a holiday dessert, simply add some crushed up candy canes to the melted chocolate and you are good to go!
Feel free to be super creative with the toppings! You can use any nuts, seeds, and berries as you prefer.
There are so many other ways I love including chocolate (cacao) in my healthy recipes.

- 3 bars of paleo chocolate
- 1/4 cup goji berries
- 1/2 cup blueberries
- 1/4 cup pistachios
- 2 tbsp shaved coconut
- Break up the chocolate bars into a microwave-safe bowl and microwave on medium heat until completely melted. Stir occasionally to prevent the chocolate from burning.
- Line a sheet pan with parchment paper or a cookie sheet.
- Pour the chocolate on top of the pan and spread it to the preferred thickness. Let the chocolate set for a little bit.
- Spread all the toppings across the chocolate.
- Freeze the chocolate bark for 30 minutes.
- Take it out from the freezer, break it into pieces, and ENJOY!
- If you dig the bitterness of chocolate and sugar-free treats, you can choose to use 100% dark chocolate. The berries and goji on top will add a little sweetness to it still.
- Feel free to be super creative with the toppings. Everything goes with chocolate
