Healthy Chocolate Bars With Fruit Nuts & Coconut #SundaySupper

All Natural Healthy Chocolate Bars with cranberries, almonds, nut butter and coconut oil!! Yummy, just what I need for my sweet tooth!  My Sunday Supper team is doing an April Showers theme to celebrate baby showers, bridal showers and more.  I love showers and jumped in with my healthy chocolate bars. Every time I was pregnant I was craving sweet and since I had gestational diabetes I could not afford to eat sugar, so turning to healthy sweets was my only choice.  I wish someone had made me these healthy chocolate bars which don’t taste one bit healthy. Let’s see, a dark chocolate base with sunflower seed butter, coconut oil and a generous sprinkling of cranberries, coconut flakes and almonds doesn’t sound too bad does it? There’s so much texture and flavor in these bars it’s pretty amazing and best of all its super easy to make. Melt, mix and set! No Bake!!  The texture was great and they were so satisfying!! You can use any nut butter, dried fruit and nuts of your choice. Use vegan chocolate chips to make this a vegan healthy chocolate bar. Chocolate bar is also Pretty Paleo for all the Paleo fans!! I am taking this sweet treat to the next shower I am invited to and I am not telling them that these are healthy chocolate bars ;)!!

Nutrition Wise!

Dark chocolate has a healthy dose of antioxidants and heart protective phenols! Nut butter and nuts contain a healthy dose of fats that are needed for healthy body function.  Coconut oil and coconut meat are high in immune boosting nutrients and contain a fat that gets burnt as fuel as soon as it is ingested.
