This Good For You “Coconut Oil” Chocolate Bark will please your sweet tooth without leaving you feeling guilty even after you have devoured several pieces.

It would make a perfect treat especially for those on special diets due to certain food restrictions.

Coconut Oil Chocolate Bark

If you haven’t started cooking with coconut oil yet, this recipe would be an excellent way to start implementing this fantastic oil to your diet. This coconut oil chocolate bark is pack with beneficial ingredients. Did you know that coconut oil helps boost brain function?  I love knowing that I can enjoy a piece of this chocolate, and it’s healthy for me.

Coconut Oil Chocolate Bark With Walnuts

This mouth-watering chocolate bark also has naturally unsweetened cocoa powder that contains antioxidants, walnuts that help reduce stress amongst many other great benefits, organic unsweetened coconut and sweetened with organic Agave in the Raw. Agave in the Raw is 25 percent sweeter than sugar, and a little can go a long way. You could also use Honey, Maple Syrup, or Stevia instead of the Agave. I prefer Agave in the Raw. If you decide to use Agave make sure to purchase Agave in the Raw. Most Agave sweeteners are high in fructose. Please do your research before using a new product that’s unfamiliar to you.

Cook Chocolate on Stove Top

Usually, when I make a batch of this chocolate bark my little boy loves helping me make it. It’s a simple recipe that doesn’t take a lot of time to make. You could add any nut (sunflower seeds, pecans, pine nuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, pumpkin seeds)  or fruit to this recipe. If you or another person that will be consuming the chocolate bark suffer from nut allergies, just eliminate the nuts from the recipe. Kim’s Note- I used Walnut Topping, which is chopped fine and ideal for small children and older adults. My parents cannot chew the nuts left whole. You could always use a food processor or coffee grinder to grind the nuts into small pieces.

Chocolate Bark Ingredients

If you would like only to use sea salt on the bark, you could do that. I think this chocolate bark will become one of your favorite treats to make. I store my chocolate bark in the freezer to grab when I get a chocolate craving. I love that this easy to make snack is healthy, and it’s great if you need extra fiber in your diet.



Place the pot on the stovetop. Pour the unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut oil and the Agave   into the pot, cook on low heat. Cook and stir the chocolate and coconut oil continuously until the coconut oil melts completely. Turn off heat and mix in the 1/2 cup of walnuts. Pour the chocolate mixture into the pan lined with parchment paper, spread the chocolate out evenly. Sprinkle sea salt, reminding 1/2 cup walnuts, and the coconut flakes over the chocolate. Place and store in the freezer. Give the chocolate about 30-40 minutes to hardened before you sample a piece. Break or cut the chocolate bark into pieces. Enjoy!

    Great recipe! Ever tried raw coconut nectar? So yummy, lots of living enzymes, low glycemic index (only 35). Has no coconut flavor because it comes from flower blossoms on the tree instead of the coconut fruit itself. I use Cheers!

    • Kim Seghers

      Thank you, Jill! I never heard of raw coconut nectar I will look into it. Thank you for sharing that with me.
      Have a great day! Kim

    I have most of these ingredients already in my pantry! What in the world am I waiting for?? I have a huge container of coconut oil just waiting to be used. I actually never even cooked with coconut oil before my son was born 15 months ago. But now I use it in many ways! I used it in his homemade goat’s milk formula, for his diaper rash, for any skin problems, and now I’m using it for food as a substitute for other items. It’s fantastic. Thanks for sharing!

    • Kim Seghers

      Hi, Annie! You should try it! I love it. I use coconut oil for everything too. My skin, teeth, as a makeup remover
      and much more. I know people that give their children goat’s milk but never coconut oil in the baby bottles. Thanks for sharing that with me.
      I would love to know how you like the bark if you decide to make it. Have a great day, Kim

    Looks so good. I love to use coconut oil for dessert too 🙂

  4. Pete

    So I tried making this one time and failed pretty hard. I’m not exactly sure what I did, perhaps I used a little too much oil to cocoa or maybe I need some better chocolate. But, after reading this, I’m definitely trying it again. Thanks for sharing.

    • Kim Seghers

      Hi Pete! Sounds like you added too much coconut oil. I love making this bark and it’s super healthy.
      You should try making another batch but use my recipe! Have a great weekend, Kim

    yummy drooling over this. I don’t think I better make it though as it will never make it till the kids get home.

    • Kim Seghers

      Hi,Joleen! I make the chocolate bark and keep in my the freezer in an airtight container.
      I nibble on it when I get a chocolate craving I don’t share much of it with my son or husband.
      I love that it’s healthy too. You should try making it I think the kids would understand if you eat it all!
      Have a lovely weekend, Kim

    I don’t see in the instructions when to add the agave.

    • Kim Seghers

      Hi Keren, I completely left that out. I’m sorry! Thank you for calling it to my attention and you’re the only person to notice I left that the agave out.To answer your question you add the agave when you add the cocoa and coconut oil. I fixed the recipe . Thank you again! Have a lovely evening, Kim
