No-Bake Almond Cacao Candy Bars Recipe

These no-bake almond cacao candy bars are simple to whip up and have the flavor of a classic candy bar. Instead of giving yourself a sugar high, they’re made with natural sugars and real food ingredients which will help you stay filled and fueled.

Chocolate is a staple for many of us, but store-bought chocolate bars offer little to no health perks. Wildly Organic Fermented Cacao Powder, on the other hand, does!

Raw fermented cacao powder is extremely nutrient dense in its unprocessed state. One of the major perks of cacao powder is its antioxidant content. This fermented cacao powder has more antioxidants than both blueberries and green tea!

Plus, cacao powder is high in calcium, magnesium, and iron – so it’s a nutrient powerhouse. And with all of its health-boosting properties comes the best part… the fact that it’s chocolate!

Cacao powder on its own can be a little bitter to most people. But when combined with a sweetener, it makes a finger-licking chocolate! The perk of this do-it-yourself chocolate is that you can adjust the sweetness of it based on your preference and how much sweetener you add to it! Love dark chocolate? Add less. Love traditional chocolate? Add more. Simple!

They also use raw honey to not only help bind them but boost the sweetness, too. Opting for a raw honey that’s made locally can help you develop an immune booster to seasonal allergies. Plus, raw honey tastes amazing!

Between the cacao and the honey, these bars are sticky, sweet and everything you need for a tasty snack or to curb a chocolate craving. Kids love them because they’re chocolate and they make a much healthier after-school snack than their store-bought counterparts!

Plus, they keep well in the freezer, so whip up a big batch and grab one when you need it! If you’re looking for an easy no-bake treat, look no further. These no-bake almond cacao candy bars are for you!

Instructions
  1. In a bowl, combine the almond meal, flax and chia seeds.
  2. Warm the coconut oil and the honey until coconut oil is liquid and whisk with the honey.
  3. Pour the honey mixture into the almond meal and stir to combine. Mixture should be wet looking.
  4. Line an 8x4-inch pan with parchment paper and place the dough mixture in.
  5. Use another piece of parchment paper or a silicone spatula to smooth out the dough until even in all corners. Place in the freezer.
  6. Meanwhile, heat the coconut oil and coconut sugar together over low heat on the stove. As the coconut oil melts, whisk in the cacao until no clumps remain. Remove from heat.
  7. Quickly pour the chocolate mixture over the almond bars to coat. Make sure the mixture is even and set the pan back in the freezer (evenly). Let set for one hour.
  8. Cut the bars into eight squares or four super large bars. Keep in the freezer.
  9. To eat, let thaw for 5-10 minutes at room temperature and enjoy!

    If I wanted to make this keto-friendly and use Swerve for the sweetener, how would I change the recipe?

      Hi Julie, We haven’t tested this recipe with swerve but from my understanding its a 1:1 sugar substitute and you can treat it as such. If you try it, please come back and let us know if it works out. Good luck!

    Butter would probably work for the base (though definitely change the flavor and may be a bit more crumbly as it won’t harden the same), however for the chocolate sauce the coconut oil helps “harden” the chocolate. My advice would be to make it more of a frosting instead of whip a mixture of ” wildly organic almond butter, maple syrup, coconut sugar and cacao powder!

    Cacao or cocoa butter works great when substituted for coconut oil!
