Chocolate Bark

GFCF/Paleo, Nut-Free, Egg-Free

This is Paleo and Primal but not SCD/GAPS because of the chocolate. It’s delicious and low in sugar. A square 1/12 of the recipe has only 1gram of sugar plus whatever is in any dried fruit added. You can even make it sugar‐free by using unsweetened chocolate and xylitol corn‐free). Can easily be made nut‐free by avoiding adding nuts.


  • 2 oz organic dark chocolate (dairy‐free) bar, 65‐75% cocoa
  • ½ cup raw coconut oil
  • ½ cup ghee, cocoa butter, or coconut oil
  • 3 oz nuts, dried fruit, or trail mix
  • 1‐2 dried shredded coconut (no sulfur or sugar)


Melt dark chocolate in double boiler or in a pot on very low heat. Add coconut oil and ghee, stir on very low for 1‐2 minutes, then remove from heat and finish melting the oils.

Line a small (6×8) Pyrex dish or baking sheet with parchment paper. Sprinkle the nuts, fruits and shredded coconut along the bottom of the dish. Pour the melted chocolate over the top and cover the nuts and fruit. Put in freezer, after 45minutes or so when it’s hardening but not too frozen, cut the bark, then continue to freeze for 2 hours or until frozen.
