If you’re craving chocolate, these chocolate bars will satisfy your cravings. These are similar to brownies, but not really – they’re healthy, delicious and naturally sweetened with dried fruit.
Well these aren’t brownies. Originally they were supposed to be, I’m not gonna lie. But they did not become brownies.
I’m telling you, these healthy chocolate bars chose their own destiny.
I just threw them together, put them in the oven and then they chose to become awesome.
You know what they taste like?
Like a real good chocolate bar. Like an expensive one.
Real rich and satisfying one. Not too sweet, just sweet enough and really chocolatey.
I must say, I’m not a big fan of chocolate (please don’t hit me).
I crave chocolate sometimes, but I don’t get crazy about it like most women. When I eat 1 little piece it’s enough (<- I’m dead to you, I know).
But I must say these chocolate bars here attract me more than a blooming flower attracts bees. And they make me poetic.
These chocolate babies keep in the fridge for about 5 days, could be longer, but I didn’t test that, because..well, I ate them all. What a surprise.
As for whether or not they’re healthy, flourless, gluten-free and grain-free – yes to all. They’re definitely the healthier version of anything baked with chocolate you can eat, don’t contain any grains and are gluten-free.
But they’re not vegan.
There are two eggs in there. I haven’t tried making these without egg, but it might work with chia or flax seeds as well.
I also used butter instead of coconut oil, since I looooove butter, but feel free to use coconut oil if you don’t eat butter.
These are definitely among the 30% of my successful baking experiments.
Given the flourless oatmeal blueberry muffins I shared last week, this will be the only baked dessert I post here for a while.
I’m expecting a lot of baking disasters from now on.
But who knows, maybe I’ve gotten really good at baking. I guess we people do change and learn to bake.
3 MONTHS…UPDATE: In the mean time, I’ve not only baked these healthy chocolate bars, but also made vegan apple crumble mini pies that I sweetened with 1 tbsp honey, a butternut squash crumble pie and a healthy delicious chocolate mousse. The last one isn’t baked, but they’re all awesome:
