This Dark Chocolate Almond Superfood Bark is loaded with good-for-you ingredients like matcha, goji berries, and chia seeds! It’s gluten-free and makes a perfect homemade holiday gift! Plus an awesome giveaway for all you last-minute gift-givers.
Hey guys! I can’t believe we’re only a week away from Christmas already! I am soooo behind it’s not even funny.
The next few weeks are going to be pretty quiet around here; I’ve decided to take a little time off so that I can regroup and come back bettah than EVAH in 2016!! But before I say bye, I wanted to go out with a bang!
I’ve got an awesome homemade gift recipe, plus a video, plus a killer giveaway for all you last-minute gift-givers! Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom of the post to enter to win $100 worth of CHOCOLATE!!! With Christmas coming right up this giveaway will only be open for a few days, so hurry up and enter!
But first let’s talk bark. Bark is about the easiest homemade gift you can give, for reals. If you’ve got 5 minutes, you can make bark. And who doesn’t love chocolate???
Well, in my family there are quite a few who don’t. Actually, it’s not that they don’t like it, it’s that they’re perpetually preoccupied with their health. Darn health, always getting in the way of my treat-giving!
This is the answer. It’s loaded with just about every kind of superfood I could squeeze in there. Dark chocolate (antioxidants), matcha (polyphenols), almonds (protein and healthy fats), goji berries (vitamin C), and chia seeds (I feel healthier just looking at them). Plus it’s pretty red and green for Christmas!
I could go on and on but really there’s no need because there’s this video that says it all:
And now for the giveaway! Remember, this will only be open for a few days, because I need to mail out the gift cards and I want to be sure to get them to you in enough time before Christmas.
This giveaway is only open to residents of the contiguous United States.
