Super energy snack

28 November, 2013

Most of us like a little chocolate indulgence from time to time.

While chocolate is undeniably a good food in its own right, we’ve come up with a way to turn it into a bonafide superfood with the addition of other amazing ‘superfood ingredients’. Once you try this easy to make recipe you may never want to eat chocolate another way.


  • 2 100g bars organic dark chocolate 70% cocoa
  • A pinch of Himalayan pink salt
  • 2 dessert spoons goji berries
  • 2 dessert spoons chopped mulberries
  • 1 heaped teaspoon maca powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon ashwagandha powder
  • 1 heaped teaspoon baobab powder
  • 2 heaped teaspoons chia seeds
  • 2 dessert spoons chopped nuts


1 Using a bain marie (a pan or bowl, that sits in another larger shallow pan of warm water), slowly melt the chocolate – no need to stir until it is nearly fully melted.

2 Add all the other ingredients to the liquid chocolate

3 Pour onto a non-stick baking sheet

4 Pop in the fridge until it’s set, then peel off the baking sheet and break up into pieces for a decadent yet healthy super snack

Tip: reserve some of the nuts and fruits to sprinkle on top of the melted mixture in step 3.
