Mulberry Peanut Cacao Crunchy Bars


I have to admit, I am not a fan of making raw chocolate. It never seems to come out how I want it to. If you don’t temper it, you can have problems and since I am all about simplicity, tempering isn’t something I want to mess with. But I still want good, healthy chocolate treats!

I finally have discovered a great shortcut, Organic Raw Cacao Paste. It is an amazing find. Simply melt, add ingredients and you have a wonderful chocolate base that you can make as sweet as you like.

I worked very hard to keep the sugar low in these treats. Processed sugar is not our friend. And using excessive amounts of any kind of sugar in recipes, even “natural sugars” has become a trend in on-line recipes. It catches people’s attention. It stimulates our appetites. It hooks into our “I have to have that” mentality.

I have a sweet tooth which I am actively reforming to the point of eliminating almost all processed sugar from my diet. It was a choice born from the knowledge that sugar is one of the most harmful “foods” we can put in our bodies. And I’m over it. I want vibrant health 100% of the time and highly-processed sugar doesn’t have a place in that plan.

These bites have super nutritious dried mulberries, and peanuts. I used raw peanuts. You can substitute with any nut or seed. The peanut/mulberry combination is a favorite around here and can taste a little like a Butterfinger bar. The bars are super easy to make, low in sugar and delicious!
