No Bake Cacao Bars Recipe

No Bake Cacao Bars Recipe

The rich‚ cocoa flavor and the dreamy smell of pure cacao butter‚ with only a touch of sugar‚ and sprinkled with just enough miniature chocolate chips will have you reaching for these whenever you need a sweet (yet healthy!) treat.

INGREDIENTS

1 cup almond flour

⅓ oat flour

2 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Cacao Powder

¼ tsp. sea salt

½ cup organic cane sugar

4 Tbsp. Navitas Organics Cacao Butter

1 tsp. vanilla extract

6 oz. mini semi-sweet chocolate chips, divided

DIRECTIONS

Line a 9-inch square or 9-by-12-inch rectangular pan with parchment paper, allowing overhang on all 4 sides of the pan. Set the pan aside.

In a large bowl place the almond flour, oat flour, cacao powder, salt and sugar, and whisk to combine. Set the bowl aside.

Place the cacao butter in a small saucepan over very low heat. Warm until just melted.

Pour the melted cacao butter into the bowl of dry ingredients, add the vanilla, and mix to combine. The mixture will be very soft. Allow the mixture to sit for about 5 minutes to cool down just slightly so the chocolate chips do not melt when they're added. (But don't wait much longer! The mixture may begin to solidify.) Add 4 ounces of chocolate chips to the mixture and stir to combine.

Pour the mixture into the prepared baking pan and smooth it out with a wet spatula into an even layer. Sprinkle the top evenly with the remaining 2 ounces of chips. Press the chips firmly into the top of the bars.

Place the pan in the refrigerator to allow the bars to harden (about 30 minutes). Lift the bars from the pan using the overhung pieces of parchment paper and place on a cutting board. With a large, sharp knife, slice into 16 bars.

Store in the refrigerator.
