RECIPE: Raw Chocolate Bark

    Is there anything more indicative of great affection than the gift of good chocolate?

    I think not.

    And with the rapid approach of Valentine’s Day this week I have combined both the nutritive powers of raw cacao (more information on this can be found here) with a few of my other superpower ingredient tweaks to deliver both on exceptional flavour & optimal nutritional value.

    Happy chocolating everyone!

    Makes 1 bar

    • 100g cacao butter
    • 3 heaped tablespoons raw cacao powder
    • 1 scoop Motion Nutrition peanut protein (or sub 1 tbsp extra cacao powder)
    • 3 tablespoons raw honey or maple syrup
    • To decorate – your choice! I’ve used tahini, unsulphured dried cranberries, rose petals & pistachio pieces
    1. Melt the cacao butter in a bowl over a pan of simmering water. Whisk in the honey, protein & cacao then leave to cool for 5 mins.
    2. Line a tin with parchment paper & pour in your chocolate.
    3. Drizzle with tahini & add your nubbly bits, then pop into the fridge to set for 30 mins. Cut into shards or simply present as 1 large piece.
    4. Use within a week or freeze for up to 3 months.
