Just four ingredients to make decadent but healthy Paleo Chocolate Bark with grain-free granola. A melt-in-your-mouth chocolate treat using ingredients that are good for you! Perfect for those following a paleo lifestyle… or anyone who lives a chocolate lifestyle.
Okay, guys… I’ve got THE EASIEST homemade paleo chocolate bark recipe for you all and it might change your life…
Fine, that was a little dramatic but homemade chocolate treats tend to do that to me. I can’t help but swoon over all things chocolate. Sometimes I think there might be something wrong with me… but then I’m all like “Nah, chocolate is amazing. This is completely normal.”
I’m sure I’ve said this before but I 200% do not understand when someone says they’re “not a chocolate person”. Exsqueeze me? <– sorry I’ve been binge watching The Mindy Project lately.
If you’re not a chocolate person what kind of person are you exactly?
A weird person, that’s what… I should probably say I am kidding after that statement buuutttt then I’d be lying… So yup, moving on. Hopefully all of you here love chocolate as much as I do and you’re still with me.
So what exactly is this magical creation we’re talking about today? PALEO CHOCOLATE BARK with GRAIN-FREE GRANOLA.
This dessert takes just five ingredients total and made with all the good-for-you stuff.
CACAO POWDER – antioxidants, phytonutrients, a good source of magnesium.
EXTRA VIRGIN COCONUT OIL – healthy saturated fats, medium chain fatty acids (MCT’s)
RAW HONEY – natural energy source
The process is also ridiculously simple. All you have to do is melt the coconut oil, cacao powder, honey and vanilla in a small sauce pan until fully combined. Then you transfer the mixture to a lined pan (or a silicone one like I used), top with the granola, and transfer the pan to the freezer for the chocolate to set. In about 30 minutes you’ll have healthy paleo chocolate bark ready to devour.
I love the added crunchy texture you get from the grain-free granola too. It’s kind of a must.

- Line a 8×8 square pan with plastic wrap or parchment paper, OR lightly grease a silicone square pan and set on baking sheet. Set aside.
- Over low-medium heat in a small saucepan add coconut oil and cacao powder until fully melted and cacao is combined. Gently stir in honey until combined. Remove from heat and stir in vanilla extract.
- Pour chocolate mixture into prepared pan and top with grain-free granola (I used about a 1/3 cup of chunks, and broke apart to sprinkle on).
- Transfer pan to freezer and allow chocolate to set, about 30 minutes. Once chocolate has set, remove from pan and break into bark pieces. Enjoy!
Paleo chocolate bark should be stored in freezer, due to the melting temperature of coconut oil. The chocolate will still be soft enough to enjoy frozen.
(Cook time refers to time in freezer)
Move over Bark Thins, there’s a new dog in town. Hahahah, that joke was terrible.
