Our Seal of Approval!
When Rami and I first started blogging in February of 2015, we contacted tons of blogging mavens to allow us to guest post on their site in order to get our name out there. Martina from KetoDietApp was one of the first to agree! We ended up making a Low Carb Avgolemono for her blog without the orzo but instead: trusty cauliflower rice. The inspiration came from eating at Elia’s, a traditional Greek place in Brooklyn, NY when we lived in the area.
We’re grateful to have maintained a relationship with Martina and have happily offered our ebook, Dinner in Five, as a prize in one of her many Keto Diet Challenges. If you haven’t signed up for one, you should! Her challenges are fun and a great way to stay motivated.
We’ve reviewed one of Martina’s recipes in the past and were impressed with how it turned out (see her gorgeous Low Carb Lemon Meringue Tartlets we made!). She asked if we’d be interested in trying out another and in a few days, a package was at our door bearing a whole cookbook of fat bombs! Sweet and Savory Fat Bombs is full of recipes we had never thought to make – including liquid fat bombs and even savory ones. We’re continually impressed with the quality of the books she publishes. Each recipe in the book has a photo of what the end result should look like. It’s not a bad way to initially judge how delicious something might be. Besides, we eat with our eyes too!
We finally decided to try out a bark recipe. We’ve never made one before and it seemed easy enough. Plus the variations are endless, though Martina chose a delightful sounding Salted Almond and Coconut Bark.
Our attempt turned out amazing! It goes without saying, anything born from sweetness doesn’t last very long at our house but the short amount of time we did spend with these delicious fat bombs, we thoroughly enjoyed. Martina used a homemade chocolate recipe (included in the cookbook) but we tweaked that a little and used our favorite Trader Joe’s 85% Dark Chocolate.
A huge thank you to Martina for a most delicious recipe! Give these fat bombs a try and let us know how you like them. What other flavors would you want to see on a chocolate bark?
