Dark Chocolate Superfood Bites // There's something about snacking on a delicious treat that's also wholesome. These yummy bites only have six ingredients and are loaded with nutrients. From the dark chocolate to the lentils. Yep, lentils! | Tried and TastyYou’ve seen these circulating the internet I’m sure. I’ve been wanting to make a version of them for at least a couple of years now and I”m so happy that I’ve finally done it. They are SO easy and such a delicious quick pick-me-up. When I was at the Culinary Institute of America earlier this year I used some of the most delicious high quality dark chocolate. I loved it so much that as soon as I came home I immediately ordered some on Amazon (bless you two day shipping). In that same trip I learned the benefits of ‘Pulses‘ and how adding them in to your diet can be so beneficial. I decided to add some toasted lentils to my superfood bites to amp up the nutrition even more.

By toasting the split peas you get an earthy nutty flavor. The perfect crunch and paired with the dark chocolate the right amount of sweet and nutty. I also wanted to add a little bit of tropical flair, hence the addition of unsweetened coconut… but the REAL unsweetened coconut. None of that fake stuff that has a mile long list of ingredients. That stuff isn’t even real food. Dried cranberries are always delicious with chocolate and with the almonds and pistachios you’ve got a powerhouse of healthy wholesome ingredients and flavors!

Ingredients
  1. 1 c. high quality dark chocolate
  2. 2 tbsp. split peas or red lentils
  3. 1 tbsp. dried cranberries
  4. 2 tbsp. almonds
  5. 1 tbsp. pistachios
  6. 1 tbsp. raw unsweetened coconut
Instructions
  1. Soak dry lentils in water for 1 hour. When ready, heat oven to 350˚F. Thoroughly drain the lentils and scatter on a lined baking tray. Roast in oven until crispy, turning over once, approximately 15-20 minutes. Transfer to a bowl to cool. Chop the chocolate into small pieces and put in a microwave safe glass measuring cup. Using a double boiler (or microwave), melt chocolate. Use a spoon to make small rounds of chocolate onto parchment paper. Work with one at a time, and sprinkle each round of chocolate with lentils, cranberries, almonds, pistachios and coconut while the chocolate is still warm. Let the chocolate set at room temperature, or put the bites in the refrigerator to speed things up.
