Adaptogenic Superfood Cacao Bark

Read on for DEETS on this SUPER delish treat!

Calling all chocoholics – GOOD NEWS – you can be healthy and still eat chocolate! And this is one of our FAV superfood treats. 

Fun fact: Theobroma Cacao translates to “food of the Gods” in Greek! So we can literally eat like goddesses! There are a ton of benefits of cacao – it can help lower blood pressure, improve blood flow, raise HDL (the good cholesterol), reduce inflammation, and even boost your immune system. Of course – we can go on and on about cacao, but we will save that for a future blog post. We know you are here for the CHOCOLATE EATS, so we got you! 

Before you get to baking, remember this quick tip: when shopping, know that quality matters – regular chocolate on the market is highly processed and drowning in sugar and dairy. Be intentional about choosing the most raw, pure, and unprocessed form (aka – CACAO). See below for brand recs. 

Okay, back to the melting in your mouth part! Check out this recipe below and have a blast! Tag us in your final result pics on the gram @WellnessForHou.

  3. Pour melted mixture evenly into parchment paper lined pan or glass dish to desired thickness.
  4. Let cool for 20-30 minutes on counter. Don’t forget to lick the bowl!
