Chocolate Bark with Roasted Flaxseed = YUM!!

Seriously, this is good stuff!!! And the health benefits of flaxseed are incredible – it fights cancer, heart disease, cholesterol…and the list goes on and on and on!! If you are a “sweetaholoic” and want to try flaxseed for the first time, I highly recommend this recipe to you. The end result tastes similar to a Nestle Crunch bar. And then maybe, just maybe, you will be willing to add flaxseed to your salads, smoothies, etc.

Chocolate Bark with Roasted Flaxseed

Bag of Chocolate Morsels

Raw Flaxseed


Step 1: Roast your Flaxseed. Spread the flaxseed on a dry cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for about six minutes. Give it a stir {or a shake} halfway through.

Step 2: Melt your chocolate. I used semi-sweet because that is what I had, but I would highly recommend getting dark chocolate to maximize the health benefits of this sweet treat. To melt the chocolate, I used the directions on the bag. It worked out well!

Step 3: Add about two handfuls of flaxseed to your chocolate and stir it well.

Step 4: Spread the mixture into a thick layer on wax paper. Place in refrigerator until it fully hardens.

You’ll note that my husband couldn’t wait for me to take the final picture. I gave him a tiny taste test and he was HOOKED. This coming from the man who thought I was cuh-razy for adding flaxseed to chocolate.

Guess I proved him wrong….again.

p.s. Keep the chocolate in the refrigerator, it keeps it fresh tasting!  Also, store any leftover roasted flaxseed in an airtight container and in the refrigerator.
