Ever ask yourself how hard it is to make homemade chocolate bars? Here’s your answer – it’s a breeze! And when you make it yourself, you can customize the ingredients to your taste, or to accommodate food allergies. And then there’s the fun of decorating – you can sprinkle these delicious treats with whatever floats your boat – all-natural sprinkles, candied sunflower seeds, toasted nuts, or just leave ‘em sweet and simple like I did!

Warning: these chocolate bars are rich, and you may want to cut them into even smaller squares. Store them in the freezer for best results; they’re more enjoyable partially frozen.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cup sunflower butter, divided
  • 6 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup coconut flour*
  • 8 ounces chocolate chunks

Directions

Line an 8x8” pan with parchment paper.

Mix 1 cup sunflower butter with maple syrup and coconut flour until smooth. Transfer to prepared pan, using a clean sheet of parchment paper and your hands to smooth out surface and spread mixture to edges of pan.

Combine remaining sunflower butter and chocolate chunks, and microwave for 15-20 seconds at a time, stirring in between. It should take one minute total, or until chips are just melted (don’t overheat or chocolate will scorch).

When chocolate-butter mixture is smooth, pour into pan. Spread to edges, and then freeze for 45 minutes. When partially hardened, sprinkle with chocolate sunflower seeds.

Use a sharp knife to cut into bars or squares.

*If gluten is not a problem, you can sub white whole wheat flour for the coconut flour.
