Chocolate Coconut Nut Bark

The coconut oil and macadamia nuts help reduce the impact on the blood sugar.  Use at least 70% dark chocolate or the bark will have too much sugar in it.  An 85-90% dark chocolate would even be better for lower sugar.  Eat NO MORE than a one-ounce serving of these at a time and your blood sugar should be fine (as always, monitor closely).

Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 20
INGREDIENTS
  • 1 cup dark chocolate chips or chocolate pieces
  • ½ cup virgin coconut oil
  • ½ cup macadamia nuts, chipped
  • ¼ cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 10 drops of liquid Vanilla Crème Stevia
METHOD
  1. Measure the macadamia nuts (or your favorite nut) and place in a plastic bag. Use your meat tenderizer to chip the nuts.
  2. Place a glass mixing bowl over a saucepan of simmering water and add chocolate and coconut oil. After it is all melted, remove from the heat.
  3. Add the nuts, coconut flakes and sweetener. As you add the coconut flakes you can crush them with your hand if you don’t want large pieces. Or you could use already shredded coconut. Taste to see if you want to adjust the sweetener.
  4. Mix and pour onto a small parchment lined cookie sheet. I folded the edges of the parchment up to make a “smaller container” so that I wouldn’t have really thin edges.
  5. Place cookie sheet in the freezer to set. Make sure that it is level or the nuts and coconut pieces will shift in the chocolate based on their weight.
  6. Once it has hardened, break into pieces and enjoy!
DK NOTES
You will need to keep this delicious treat in the refrigerator or it will melt.

About Lisa Johnson

Healthy food habits have a direct relationship to personal health and fitness. I have learned how all choices in life always have results or consequences. When Vic’s son Carter, was diagnosed with Type 2 Diabetes three months before his 21st birthday, I went to work trying to figure out just what a college kid who didn't know how to cook, could and would eat! Having enjoyed a lifetime of cooking for family and friends, I recognized a void for healthy, low glycemic, sugar free food that would be easy for any level cook and had high flavor to keep all our taste buds satisfied!

  1. This sounds very good. Where can I buy vanilla creme stevia or can I use regular stevia? My grocery store carries regular stevia.

  2. Jeannette you can find Vanilla Creme Stevia at the health food store. If yours doesn’t have it, it is available on Amazon. If you can’t find it … use liquid stevia and add a few drops of pure vanilla extract. This is an addicting recipe!
