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 was one of the first to agree! We ended up making a  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, , as a prize in one of her many . If you haven’t signed up for one, you should! Her challenges are fun and a great way to stay motivated.

IMG_20160601_185932We’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.

Yes please!

Toasted Coconut Almond 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?

Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F. Spread the almonds and coconut onto a foil-lined baking sheet. Place it in the preheated oven and toast for 5-8 minutes. Stir once or twice to prevent burning. Once everything is toasted, set the baking sheet off to the side to cool.

  4. Scatter the toasted almond and coconut flakes over the top and press gently with your hands so that everything is touching the chocolate. Sprinkle lightly with sea salt and let it set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.

  5. Once it has set, slice with a knife or a pizza roller. We opted to break/rip it into shards and enjoy their imperfect shapes!

Recipe Notes

We used Trader Joe's 85% Dark Chocolate. In Martina's book, she uses her own homemade dark chocolate which decreases the carb count of her fat bombs. Feel free to use a homemade chocolate recipe or the darkest chocolate you can find!

Here are Martina's nutrition facts using her chocolate: 161 Calories, 15.3g of Fat, 2.6g of Protein, 1.9g of Net Carbs.
