Coco-Cocoa-Walnut Bark

Within the world of low-carb eating, there are certain concepts that can't be ignored. There are certain recipes and types of foodstuffs that are seen again and again; over and over. One of them is the 'One Minute Muffin' which I added to my site, not long ago.

Another is 'Bark'. No, not like the dog. More like the tree!

It's actually a bit of a wonder food. It's really no surprise that it's as popular as it is. It's got about 4 very clear characteristics that qualify it as a super food, in my humble opinion:
  1. It's quick and easy to make.
  2. It quenches that "sweet" tooth, as well as the one seeking chocolate!
  3. It's made with good fats, which leave people feeling satisfied for hours.
  4. It's versatile! I've seen people toss all kind of things into their barks. This creates an endless variety!
I think the secret 5th bonus characteristic is that removing the nuts makes it induction friendly!

I've seen people infuse them with flavored oils and extracts. I've seen all varieties of nuts. I've seen all varieties of sweeteners. I've seen people throw dried fruits into it. I've seen people experiment with different colors, making "white" barks, too!

Such a simple thing, but it fills so many needs. Oh, did I mention ... it's delicious!
